Pricing and Cost Advice
"We have an annual contract with Kentik that we renew each year for a set number of licenses. We also have some burstable licenses which we can spin up and spin down, and those are paid as they are used."

"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."
