Pricing and Cost Advice
"Educational pricing is available for this solution.""We were given a year's worth of service. It was included within our ELA. We were trying to do a proof of concept, which is almost over now.""Different locations require different setups. In your terms, around 300 to around 400K USD."

"If you look into Riverbed, it's a licensing nightmare. You need to pay for every type of analysis... If you don't look into licensing, Riverbed and SolarWinds are pretty comparable. But if you look into licensing it would not be smart to go for either of them. On the pure, bare-metal basis, it's the same. But when you get the bare metal and a few basic licenses, then you need all those other licenses just to be sure that there's no issue... One of the great things about Skylight is you have them all, and you actually need them all.""It's not for free, clearly. But on the other hand, it offers very interesting functionality. We pay around €100,000.""Pricing is a little bit expensive.""We understand there's a significant cost difference, but have yet to investigate fully.""The pricing is cheaper than other competing products, which is better for our budgets.""It provides value and the cost is not huge."
