Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The licensing model could be improved. We love that you can use it for free for looking at NetApp products. You only need licenses to look at non-NetApp products, but as soon as you do that, you start utilizing licenses that actually would have been free in the public. So, there is a bit of an anomaly in the licensing model."
  • "Be aware of the capacity licensing and understand how that works, because it is based on capacity. Getting an understanding of that is the biggest thing."

  • "It didn't scale well from the cost perspective. We had a custom package deal."
  • "The price is better than some competing products."
  • "Pricing is somewhat affordable compared to other solutions but in order to really lower the costs of other products you need to plan very carefully your resources usage, otherwise, it can get expensive real quick."
  • "It is easy to run up a large bill, so become familiar with the cost of each piece of your bill and use the metrics they supply to estimate and monitor your bill."
  • "Pricing seemed easy until the bill came in and some things were not accounted for."
  • "The cost is high and this can be justified if the scale of the environment is big."
  • "My advice is to really keep an eye on your overage costs, as they can spiral really fast."
  • "If you do your homework, you'll find that if you're really concerned with cost, it's good."
