One of the interesting things that are coming to the floor is augmented reality, but I haven't seen any related discussions. It's obvious that they are waiting for devices. Most people don't seem to understand that in order for augmented reality to become a viable entity for specific verticals, such as healthcare, manufacturing, or retail, you have to have a common database for all operational requirements. Then, you have to create extensions. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

This is a product I recommend. My advice to anybody who is considering it is just to go and get it. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

I would suggest that if you don't have the hands-on experience to administer a solution like vSAN ReadyNode then you should consider other options. For example, VxRail is a bit more expensive, but if you don't have the basic knowledge required for vSan then VxRail is an internet solution that provides a much easier interface to manage and to administer. I would rate this solution a seven out of 10.

The current customer for this solution is a service provider currently using private cloud and hoping to become a public cloud provider later on. vSAN starts its customers with private cloud to give them a taste of the technology. Later on they move to implementing public cloud. I'm a pre-sales consultant and we're a partner of Dell.

I am a data center solutions architect that specifies the solution and then implements it for our customers. 90% of the time, it is deployed on their local data center and their objective is to go to the cloud. This is what they will do once their applications are brought up to speed.

There are two costs that you have to consider before you can compare and you'll find that the HCI is cheaper overall. In a five-year duration, it is cheaper. But when you compare license to license, it is much more expensive but when you think of it, you need to think of the total cost of ownership and your ROI.

There is a problem, which is the lack of an integrated price structure. The issue comes down to affordability relative to alternatives and how they integrate with Azure, AWS, Google, as an example.
