From now on, when quoting DPS for VMware we will, if required by the partner, offer the Avamar metadata node for free.platform-avamar

PSC from today will apply this in the quotes, as long as the partner asks for Price Assistance and

requests the Avamar node for free and indicates which model the customer needs.

This will enable us to be much more competitive against VEEAM and Commvault.

When DPSuite for  VMware (model 456-110-832) is quoted   (must be on the cart)

  1.  The Avamar metadata node  model AVMA600FG4S (m600 node) or model AVMA1200FG4S (m1200 node)
    can be provided at 100% discount along with associated maintenance
  2. Quantity of metadata node could be 2 if the customer is replicating their environment
  3. Both nodes would be 100% discount along with associated maintenance.

Partner and/or EMC Sales Rep need to request the node at 100% discount in a Price Assistance and specify which Avamar model the need: AVMA600FG4S (m600 node) or model AVMA1200FG4S (m1200 node) and the quantity: 1 or 2.
