We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.

Licensing is straightforward, per node and capacity, with only 2 capacity tiers. It wasn't difficult. They will install it onsite or preconfigure it and ship it to you. We saved a ton by installing it ourselves. The pricing was great and simplifying to iSCSI saved us even more money in the end.
StarWind by far provides the best bang for the buck. The big players are a stretch price-wise for the clients in this range, and StarWind beats them every time.
Cost is really something that attracts us to begin the journey with StarWind many years ago but then we simply realized that their solution works with superb performances and are really happy to stick to it. We use it on HCI mode where we just purchased the software and build our own solution with our own hardware and also we have purchased a ready-made appliance from StarWind, both work fine and we are happy with them.
It costs about 50,000 euros.
@RobMooij I paid much less than that for a net 40TB of usable storage.
