Aweekstweets November 7-13 2010: the week God dealt me a full deck

By that logic, businesses punish their customers every time they cut prices, but do us a great humanitarian service when they overcharge. 1 minute ago via TweetDeck

In a POC environment, cheap gets you in the door, but tested performance wins deal. It's absurd to think cheap storage "punishes" customer. 3 minutes ago via TweetDeck

If you price by TB, the customer has transparent cost basis for shortlisting vendors to invite to the POC, where they prove out performance. 4 minutes ago via TweetDeck

If you price by named user or user/month, that's simply pricing by how much you load the system, but not how well system performs under load 7 minutes ago via TweetDeck

If you price by CPU, core, or server, that's capacity, but not actual performance, which can vary wildly depending on your loads. 10 minutes ago via TweetDeck

If you price by proprietary performance metric, there's no transparency that allows you to compare other vendors. 11 minutes ago via TweetDeck

If you price by actual tested performance, that usually means you're locked into one vendor. 11 minutes ago via TweetDeck

Pricing in #DW mkt: By TB. By CPU. By core. By svr. By named user. By user/month. By actual tested performance. By proprietary perf metric 12 minutes ago via TweetDeck

@GregRahn If vendors go to completely performance-based pricing, then customers should pay zilch if DW doesn't live up to performance claims 17 minutes ago via TweetDeck in reply to GregRahn

@GregRahn I don't understand how one's inability to use all the capacity you buy invalidates capacity-based pricing. 20 minutes ago via TweetDeck in reply to GregRahn

@GregRahn Derived metric? What does that mean? Derived from dividing price by capacity? Well of course. 21 minutes ago via TweetDeck in reply to GregRahn

@merv The vendors who don't like per-TB pricing tend not to like it because they sell expensive TBs. 25 minutes ago via TweetDeck in reply to merv
