There is a one-time price for hardware, and with the software support, everything is included, such as software upgrades. The licensing of the solution is included in the cost of the hardware and the support is an extra cost. We have purchased support on an annual basis, but you can purchase support up front for up to seven years. We usually buy five years and near the time of the expiry, we sometimes extend it.

The price of the solution is a little high, although the performance is very good.

We pay a one-time fee for terabyte licenses, and the support is paid yearly. There are costs in addition to the licensing fee, but it's included in the hardware.

HPE Nimble Storage has a simple management end-user. The customer will generally provide us with feedback about performance upon installation of the solution, including in respect of VMware. Our customers are helpful when our performance involves configuring integration such as that of vCenter with InfoSight. I am aware of the tech problem we encounter. The VM we have with high-class latency is, surprisingly, very helpful to manage.

I think HPE Nimble Storage is less expensive than Primera and is the best solution for Venezuela.

The price is negotiable and when we first received the quote it was expensive, but after dealing with them and receiving a discount, the price is reasonable.

HPE Nimble Storage didn't require a license at the time.

I would classify it as an expensive product. It's a high-end product. It's quite expensive, but it's what you would expect from a storage box.

Nimble Storage is too expensive for our enterprise customers.

The solution is quite expensive. We can't really afford to buy a second device.

The pricing is better than some of the competitors, such as Dell EMC.

We purchased the solution for something in the $80,000 range. It was a fixed-price option.

There are no licensing costs for this solution.

It is a CAPEX investment. Over the anticipated lifespan, I would say the pricing is $10,000 a month. The price has room for improvement.

Our hybrid solution could do with some more competitive pricing and more scaled-down deployments. Already, the smallest one is too much for us. We would flourish by having a smaller unit. If you don't go cheap, it is eventually worth it. However, the initial investment is high.

Performance per dollar, when we looked at it, was the highest that we could get for what we needed.

We are paying for the licensing yearly.

We buy the arrays outright, so we don't pay anything on an ongoing monthly basis for licensing.

When selecting a vendor make sure to validate with the vendor that the throughput is enough. With the AF5000, it is 2GB/s write and 4GB/s read, which we are maxing out. Also, ensure to get the right amount of network cards. Also, make sure that the specifications meet the application domain and ensure the right amount of network cards are in the array.
