For us, there are no extra costs above the standard licensing fees.

The solution is expensive - not only the hardware costs but server costs too. And the more you scale, the more expensive it gets.

The price of HPE Hyper Converged is too high if I compare the product with a traditional solution or an alternative like SimpliVity. I have to pay the licensing for the CPU on top of the software and device costs.

When I look at the TCO of this solution is this much better compared to my old traditional environment

Pricing with Dell EMC is double the price which I paid for HPE. However, in the end, Dell EMC is double in performance. This is not an apple to apple comparison though, as I have a four node from Dell EMC and a three node. I don't feel VxRail is that expensive.

In this particular case, the HPE Hyper Converged solution is used in a hybrid cloud configuration. We assess the disk space and partition additional capacity. The performance is good compared to the cost of the solution. I offer it to my customers. If we propose a solution, we must ensure that the platform quality is very high. Also, the cost of the solution is important.
