How does pricing of VMWare's Cloud Based Disaster Recovery work?

What would it cost to have this cloud DR for say 40 VM's using 1TB ram and 20TB disk in total? A very rough figure would be appreciated.
I'm trying to evaluate its merit and cost versus buying hardware at a remote office and just doing the DR in-house. Thank you. Any hidden costs or gotchas?

how are you planning to get this 20TB to the cloud? From your requirements just the infrastructure is going to cost you about $1000GBP (1,300USD) /Month

it's much more than 1300 USD a month

DR service is 6TB, 240GB for $5,200 a month, x 4 = $20,000 a month

you could use the OnDemand service no contract, subscription.

You can add a configuration here

http://vcloud.vmware.com/uk/service-offering/pricing-calculator/on-demand

and based on number of hours usage, 24 hours, and lets say how many hours in DR site, before back up and running e.g. 7 days

250GB per VM, 40VMs, 1 vCPU = approx (20 public IP)

have a look at the calculator yourself...rough figures

@Andrew In your example that's $4,537 for seven days of operating your business out of their cloud during some kind of disaster event. Is that correct? Are there other costs when you first setup the environment and replicate your data to their site but aren't making use of the VM's?

None, on the OnDemand it's Pay As You Go  Model, pay for what you use.
