The pricing isn't too expensive. It's reasonable.

The licensing model is complex and depends on factors such as the number of processing cores and the amount of storage.

The licensing is based on the number of terabytes. We have an enterprise license agreement with IBM and it doesn't reflect the moment price list. I think that it's a good price but it is quite expensive.

interesting question. Simply put, the one that is better is the one that is the better fit for the client ? Please give me specific environment details, infrastructure background, existing footprints, planned projects, IT team’s skill sets etc. and I will be able to give you a better answer.
