VCF on VxRail offers flexible financial consumption models that can align to how customers choose to consume their private cloud technologies. They include traditional CAPEX, DTCP Subscription, and Dell Technologies On Demand.
- CAPEX - As has always been the case, customers can purchase VCF on VxRail using traditional CAPEX consumption models. This model requires an upfront payment. This option is available for two solution configuration options: Configure to Order and Fixed configurations. CTO configurations enable complete choice and flexibility. Fixed configurations include a subset of pre-configured node configuration options designed for faster delivery times. CTO configurations are available globally while fixed configuration options are available only in the US currently.
- DTCP SUBSCRIPTION - The Dell Technologies Cloud Platform with VCF on VxRail offers subscription pricing options. DTCP subscriptions are built for speed and flexibility. Released in February 2020 update of DTCP (VCF on VxRail), makes it very easy and quick for customers to buy and scale hybrid cloud deployments with a choice of 6 pre-configured node options with standard and pre-built racks. As a subscription, the monthly price is based on per node per month cost. This is another step on our path for cloud innovation, focusing on making it as simple as possible to do business with Dell Technologies. It is currently available in the US only.
- Dell Technologies ON DEMAND - With the recent expansion of Dell Technologies On Demand across the portfolio organizations are able to deploy Dell Technologies Cloud Platforms and pay only for the technology used, providing access to elastic capacity and payments that adjust up or down to match usage. This option is built for choice and flexibility. It is a consumption program that is made up of different financial consumption models like Flex On Demand, Data Center Utility, and Leasing options. Dell Technologies On Demand offerings support the full configure to order configurations available with VCF on VxRail and is available globally.
