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."

"It has always scaled for us. Cost scales up too, but that is not necessarily a bad thing. It's reasonable for what they're providing.""Pricing and licensing are reasonable for what they give you. You get the first five hosts free, which is fun to play around with. Then it's about four dollars a month per host, which is very affordable for what you get out of it. We have a lot of hosts that we put a lot of custom metrics into, and every host gives you an allowance for the number of custom metrics.""At my last company, we did see ROI, specifically around response time. We could get to mission critical things that were down and losing revenue on immediately. So, the product paid itself back.""The pricing and licensing through AWS Marketplace has been good. It would be nice if it was cheaper, but their pricing is reasonable for what it is. Sometimes, for their newer features, they charge as if it's fully fleshed out, even though it is a newer feature and it may have less stuff than their other items.""It costs the same amount it would if we were hosting it ourselves, so we are incredibly happy with the cost.""The pricing came up a bit compared to their competitors. It is not that the price has risen, but that the competitors have gone down. They keep adding more features that I would have expected to be baked in at a more nominal price. I have been increasingly dissatisfied with the pricing, but not enough to jump ship.""It didn't scale well from the cost perspective. We had a custom package deal."

Overview

Kentik's AIOps Network Traffic Intelligence platform unifies network operations, performance, security, and business intelligence. 

With a purpose-built big data engine delivered as public or private SaaS, Kentik captures a high-resolution view of actual network traffic data and enriches it with critical application and business data, so every network event or analysis can be tied to revenue & costs, customer & user experience, performance & risk.

cPacket’s cStor appliance is a cost-effective solution for recording high speed traffic at critical network links, and for retrospective analysis of operational and security issues. cStor captures packets on a modular disk array at line rate which enables network operators to retrieve any piece of data on-demand by simply using a web GUI or automated scripts. The historical recording enables forensic examination of critical issues that is required to make corrective actions. Ingress traffic to the cStor appliance is derived from cPacket’s cVu monitoring device. The cVu’s smart ports are real time sensors that inspect all incoming traffic instantaneously to extract key performance indicators and proactive alerts about unusual activity

Datadog is a monitoring service for IT, Dev and Ops teams who write and run applications at scale, and want to turn the massive amounts of data produced by their apps, tools and services into actionable insight.
