The licensing is complex. Sometimes I have trouble understanding it.

There is a license required for this solution and there is also a support license available. The price of the solution could be better.

I'm not involved in the licensing process at all. I have no knowledge of how long our licenses last or how much it costs the company.

Our customers can use the solution for free, however, this comes with restrictions.

The price of this product is too high.

The cost of the solution is a little high, particularly given that most people will not use all the features of the product. If a customer does use all the options, it is a very cheap solution but that is unlikely. For a regular user looking for normal switching, the price feels high. If it's implemented properly you can reduce the cost.

We have a license. It is an expensive product, but cheaper than some competing solutions.

My advice is to make sure that you properly scope the project from both hardware and network requirements. NSX-T can be complicated if it is not designed correctly.

The licensing fees are expensive and we pay on a yearly basis. However, we were able to leverage some of the licenses that we had for an affiliated product, ESXi. There are no costs in addition to the standard licensing fees.

It has helped us save CapEx but I'm not sure exactly how much.

It has saved us CapEx. They should adjust the license for NSX so that we can invest in the infrastructure or purchasing of new hardware. This solution is reasonably priced compared to other vendors.

The solution is expensive.
