We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"We are using the free version and intend to upgrade."
"It can be expensive."
"This product is open-source and can be used free of charge."
"We are using the open-sourced version."
"The basic license is free, but it comes with a lot of features that aren't free. With a gold license, we get active directory integration. With a platinum license, we get alerting."
"The pricing model is questionable and needs to be addressed because when you would like to have the security they charge per machine."
"We are using the Community Edition because Elasticsearch's licensing model is not flexible or suitable for us. They ask for an annual subscription. We also got the development consultancy from Elasticsearch for 60 days or something like that, but they were just trying to do the same trick. That's why we didn't purchase it. We are just using the Community Edition."
