  • Hi Eileen:

    Thanks for your reply, but do you have any idea of the pricing? I have been trying to search hard but there wasn't any information about PDW.

  • hi Johnny,

    as you can imagine the pricing varies depending on the IHV and topology chosen. You can buy PDW in its smallest topology (referred to as quarter-rack). This basically means a 2-node appliance. You can scale to multiple racks as your data volume grows (through the add unit feature). Feel free to reach out to our sales to get concrete pricing models for these different offerings - I'd start with Andy Mouacdie - our world-wide sales director who can help directing you to the right folks.

  • Dear Artin,

    Thank you for your reply, may I ask how to get in touch with Andy on that question? I would like to recommend PDW for one of my clients and need an idea of pricing for their system, at least a guide price for the quarter - rack offering and an idea of the cost of scalability (an option for half rack, full rack, two rack, etc).

    Thank you,
