We're still dealing with POCs. In the future, if it works okay, we'll try it in a larger environment.

The pricing is lower for VirtualBox. It's much cheaper than VMware, for example, which has very high pricing in comparison.

Right now I am mainly using the free versions of the solutions. I'm not ready to spend a lot because I don't have too many machines. I do not qualify to be charged yet. So I've never worried too much about the pricing because most of my pricing is academic for the machines at school. But even being a school, I have a special agreement with Microsoft.

Pricing does not apply for us, we do not have to pay for the service.
