There is an annual license required to use the solution.

All licensing costs are perpetual. You have to pay for support on a yearly basis. For our country, we are an under-developed country so the price should be lower. VMware charges too much in our country. If our customer has the option to buy a server for $4,000 or $5,000, but VMware asks for two-person licensing $7,000 to $8,000, that is more than the hardware price. So sometimes, the customer cannot pay for it because it's too expensive.

The licensing is expensive compared with Hyper V and Unitech's platform.

The pricing is expensive, but you pay for what you get. The price ultimately could be more competitive in my opinion.
