We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.
Please share what you can so you can help your peers.
I can't remember what our setup costs were. I know we paid in VSPP points. Our contract covers other environments so it's not something I monitor.
It is better than other solutions out there when it comes to cost.
Compared to alternatives like Microsoft SPLA, this solution is on the expensive side. It's an expensive solution but it comes with its benefits for being pricey.
I would advise someone looking into this or a similar solution to get people who understand the technology and what you can do with it to get the program right the first time. You can make a lot of mistakes during the deployment. Get someone in there to help you if you don't understand the product 100 percent. I rated this solution an eight. I believe that everything has room for improvement and wouldn't give any solution a ten.
This solution is cheaper than other alternatives.
In terms of costs, I would say there is no comparison between this solution and alternatives. If you are in the market for VMware services, that's just what it is. You don't have any other product like this on the market.
vCloud Director isn't cheap.
vRealize Orchestrator is an expensive tool.
