Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "It's a one-time licensing fee for the device and we pay a quota per year for the support."
  • "The licensing comes with a warranty."
  • "Dell EMC PowerEdge Rack Servers are very expensive."
  • "The price of Dell EMC PowerEdge Rack Servers is reasonable compared to other solutions."
  • "The pricing for this solution is reasonable. We pay a basic premium with a military premium on top of that."
  • "When you compare public cloud solutions to PowerEdge in terms of cost, initially the cost of Dell servers or Dell technology was really high. However, right now it's on par or, maybe, even cheaper when we use Dell hardware. If we don't swap it out in three years and if we stretch it to four or five years, then we can get even more of an ROI versus cloud cost."
  • "This solution is reasonably priced and licenses are easy to acquire."
  • "I have no issues with the pricing and licensing costs. They are fine."
