We extensively looked into our customer base and analyzed from various fronts like the features a medium business wanted and their ability to spend. The insight was very simple. Small businesses didn’t want to shell out for products that had way too many features than required. They didn’t want to spend on what they didn’t need. We agreed with them. Although our pricing has been very affordable for the features we offered, we decided to make it even simpler with Standard Edition.
The Standard Edition for VMware Backup is priced at USD 216/CPU-socket/annum. If your requirement comes under 6 CPU sockets, you get an additional discount of 50% that could lead to USD 108/CPU-socket/annum!
The Standard Edition for Hyper-V Backup also has surprises. Priced at a reasonable USD 144/CPU-socket/annum, it gets down to USD 72/CPU-socket/annum if you fall under the above-mentioned discount category.
