“Technology is only valuable if it results in faster, cheaper, or better. If not, it just sucks up time and money that could be put to better use somewhere else.” – Jeff Haden, INC. Magazine
This quote is timely as we are actively investigating VMWARE’s virtual networking technology NSX. Remarkably, the technology is capable and connected deeply with our strategic DevOps philosophy.
However, my struggle is NSX’s cost. Sans discussing the specifics of our pricing, the math roughly equates to $2000 per server for 3 years.
Organizations with a small technology footprint, is NSX valuable enough for faster, cheaper, or better results?
