Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
  • "Their licensing costs are high. But I think for the scale that we are using, it's suitable. If you use it on a larger scale with many servers, you have to pay a lot of money for them. I think it's suitable for organizations that don't need expert people that want more money each year or each month because it's a straightforward solution. We prefer to pay for these products that are integrated and straightforward."
  • "The price of the solution is expensive. However, it is reasonably priced compared to competitors."
  • "It is on a yearly basis."
  • "This product is not cheap. I have a yearly license for vCenter and the license is not cheap."
  • "The price of the solution is too expensive for us and we are looking to move to another solution."
  • "The solution comes with three-year support. We have to renew the support annually after the three years are up."
