Not only are startup costs 20% lower than other suppliers, HPE recently announced that operating expenses are substantially lower than competing solutions. That means service providers, mid-sized businesses and enterprises can deploy and manage their VMs at a cost that is up to 35% lower per desktop per month compared to cloud providers.
