VAST Data Pricing

VAST Data pricing is touted at about $0.03/GB instead of a dual-port NVMe enterprise SSDs at $0.60/GB. The architecture is designed as a “single tier, flash-based capacity store that can cover performance to archive-level data storage needs at a cost similar to or lower than hard disk drives.”

Other VAST Data cost research shows that it is targeting large enterprises with typical configurations in the $1 Million dollars and up range. This is certainly not out of line with mission critical application expectations.

Background of VAST Data Cost and Price List structure

Now VAST has come out of stealth, confident it has world-beating storage technology.

VAST Data sells it’s product three ways;

– a 2U quad server appliance, with 8 x 50Gbit/s Ethernet links, running VAST containers, presenting NFS and S3 out to client servers, and the databox enclosure,
– a Docker container image and databox enclosures, with the host servers running apps as well as the VAST containers,
– a Docker container (software-only).

The software only version means that VAST could run in the public cloud, if the proper databoxes were provided.

VAST Data Conclusion

Rocket Ship newcomer VAST Data burst onto the scene in 2019 to create an “extinction level event” for hard disk technology in the data center. Quite the goal.

We’ll continue to search for VAST Data pricing related articles and press releases.

Zerto Virtual Replication (ZVR) Pricing for Cost Comparison

Zerto Virtual Replication pricing (ZVR) protects a single VM starts around $745 per year. However, Sales are done completely through channel partners, so final pricing will likely fluctuate based on the size of the deal being brokered and the options selected.

The only all-in-one IT Resilience Platform, converging Disaster Recovery, Backup and Cloud Mobility in one simple, scalable platform.

  • Reduce cost and complexity of application migrations and data protection with Zerto’s unique platform utilizing Continuous Data Protection.
  • Orchestration built into the platform enables full automation of recovery and migration processes.
  • Analytics provides 24/7 infrastructure visibility and control, even across clouds.

Starting at $745 per year, Zerto Virtual Replication (ZVR) pricing represents a well-rounded Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS) solution, but one that’s directed primarily at midsize and large companies. That’s due primarily to the need for an experienced IT staff to fully operate it. Zerto offers more overall flexibility than it’s competition so, if your needs are unique, then it’s definitely worth checking out.

The prerequisite components blur the cost a bit more. For example, if you are planning on using Microsoft Hyper-V, also plan on purchasing Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager. It’s also important to consider the costs of hosting the Zerto Cloud Appliance in AWS or another third-party cloud provider, like Rackspace ($10,300.00 at Rackspace).

Most Disaster Recovery As A Service offerings provide a variety of specialized backup methods including bare metal backup/restore, database, virtual machine (VM), and mail server recovery. Zerto instead focuses on safeguarding VMs only through replication to another host on your network or to an external cloud such as Amazon Web Services ($6,415.00 at Amazon) (AWS).

Vexata VX100 pricing

A basic price for the Vexata VX100 configuration with 4 storage blades starts around $75,000, while the more robust version with 16 blades and 64 SSDs (approximately 200 TB of raw capacity and 155 TB of useful capacity) starts at a budgetary pricing cost of $ 500,000.

Founded on the premise that every business is challenged to deliver cognitive, data-intensive applications, Vexata delivers 10x performance AND efficiency improvements at a fraction of the cost of existing all-flash storage solutions.

The Vexata VX100 100% Flash array is an NVMe-based fiber channel disk array with low latency, high IOPS performance, and a reasonable price. An explosive cocktail.

A basic Vexata VX100 configuration with 4 storage blades starts around $75,000, while the more robust version with 16 blades and 64 SSDs (approximately 200 TB of raw capacity and 155 TB of useful capacity) starts below $ 500,000.

Vexata was founded by former EMC and VMware executives who designed a distributed storage architecture that maximizes the performance of NVMe drives without forcing companies to rip-and-replace their infrastructure.

This architecture is currently embodied in the Vexata Fiber Channel SAN VX-100 pricing array. The system comes in the form of a 6U chassis that accommodates up to 16 storage blades, each equipped with 4 NVMe SSDs (ie 64 disks per bay). These blades are actually motorized microservers by ARM Cavium processors, whose mission is to extract the maximum performance from NVMe SSDs while delivering optimal latency.

Violin’s unique flash ecosystem, the Flash Fabric Architecture (FFA), is woven from multiple layers of innovative technologies. At the system’s core lies a resilient, highly available mesh of thousands of flash dies that work in concert to continuously optimize performance, latency, availability, and longevity. Violin performance advantage saves customers money, with less IO, less expensive processors or fewer ones because the existing ones are more efficient, and fewer application licenses such as VMWare, Oracle, SQL, and of course reduced power & cooling at the rack level.

  • Spike-free and predictable latency.
  • Consistent performance that enables multiple workloads for data center consolidation.
  • Enterprise Reliability as all active components of the FFA are hot-swappable for reliability, availability, and serviceability (RAS).
