We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.
Please share what you can so you can help your peers.
We are under a perpetual license in terms of software.
I believe HPE Primera and Pure Storage are similar in price.
Licensing fees are billed on a yearly basis and the cost of GreenLake service is included. I don't mind these fees because the service is good.
It is basically in the mid-range of the price. It is not cheaper than Hitachi, but it is cheaper than Pure Storage. There are no additional costs. Everything was taken care of in the price.
With HPE Primera there is no additional cost, but it depends what configuration we are talking about. If we are excluding support, it is very expensive. There is no showstopper for prices, just support or service. We are a Platinum Partner of HP Enterprise so we give quotes and configure HP Enterprise solutions. I don't know what happens in the US market, but in Georgia it is very expensive. It is expensive if compared with Dell Technology.
The price to capacity ratio is good.
From what I see, this is competitively-priced and HPE are doing their best to stay competitive.
The price of this solution is good for medium-sized and large businesses.
Which is better and why?
