We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It is a very straightforward licensing model that is based on the number of assets you are discovering and managing with the solution."
"The licensing and costs are straightforward, as they have a baseline of 100 workloads (number of instances) within one license with no additional nor hidden charges. If you want to have 200 workloads under Dome9, then you need to take out two licenses for that. Also, it does not have any impact on cloud billing, as data is shared using the API call. This is well within the limit of free API calls provided by the cloud provider."
"I suggest that you pay attention to the product pricing because while there are no tricks, and the licensing model is transparent, the final numbers may surprise you."
"Right now, we have licenses on 500 machines, and they are not cheap."
"The pricing is tremendous and super cheap. It is shockingly cheap for what you get out of it. I am happy with that. I hope that doesn't get reported back and they increase the prices. I love the pricing and the licensing makes sense. It is just assets: The more stuff that you have, the more you pay."
"In the beginning, the price of Dome9 was cheap, whereas now it is not."
"Licensing and costs are straightforward, as they have a baseline of 100 workloads within one license and no additional charges."
