The product is very expensive. I rate the solution’s pricing a ten out of ten. The customers have to buy the solution if they have a requirement. It is a costly solution. However, the functionality is worth the money. The price is fixed.

It's a costly solution, but Pure Storage FlashBlade doesn't require additional licenses. All of the software is combined into one bundle.

Pure Storage FlashBlade is a hardware appliance, and it's very expensive if you compare its price with other solutions. You can get the same features and benefits from its competitor, VAST Data, but for half the price of Pure Storage FlashBlade.

I feel that the price could always be lowered. It would be nice.

They don't have a license at all. They have some software products like Portworx, and they sell the license for those. however, the FlashBlade and X FlashArray don't have a license at all. It's included in the system; you don't need to buy it separately.

It's a premium technology. The solution does not come cheap. It's pretty expensive.

It's expensive. The price should be reduced. Licensing fees are paid yearly.

In my opinion, we have paid the right price for the product. I don't think that it is too much or too little.

The price is a little high, but I'm not the guy who is selling it to the customer — I only design the solution. Price-wise, somebody else's has to make a decision about it.

The pricing of the solution is reasonable. It's not too expensive. We've found it to be pretty fair and we haven't been surprised by any costs.

This solution is on the more expensive side but it's usual for niche products with a lot of compatibility and features, so the price is right.

In the licensing model, everything is included. You don't buy a separate license for Active Plus. Support is a separate line item. Support is a different cost, but whatever your support is now, that's what you're going to pay forever. If your support's $100 today, six years from now it's $100. It doesn't fluctuate unless you upgrade it, or change it, etc.

We used a reseller for the purchase.
