"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.

That's why we didn't purchase it. We are just using the Community Edition."
