Pricing and Cost Advice

We now feel the pricing is a good value. Previously we had a just a normal license but now we've got an Enterprise license. Since the Enterprise, it's been a lot better value. We did think it was pretty expensive before, but with the Enterprise license it's almost less than half that price. If you have a number of accounts within the organization that use Statseeker, I would suggest get the Enterprise license.
One thing that needs improvement is how it's licensed. I understand historically the company licensed it off a same charge for everyone. I understand the company needs to make money, but how they introduced the tiered licensing model, and then multiple layers of licensing was a bit of an issue. So, on the whole, coming up with a licensing model that isn't confusing and complicated and is easy to understand would be one way to improve the product. They have told me lately that they're changing how they license stuff, but they haven't made that - as I understand it - in their marketing material public knowledge as of yet. I would say that at the moment it's a bit convoluted. It's confusing. Some of their basic licensing model is a bit of a ripoff. If you go over five or ten support calls in the basic licensing model they start charging you for support calls. I think that's a bit rich.
Up until we actually talked to Statseeker, and Statseeker came and gave us an enterprise licensing model for multiple accounts, I would have said the pricing was not good value. The fact they've come to the party now and given us a very good discount, I would say it's probably about right, the pricing they're giving us now. But the retail pricing, if I went out and, as a separate company, and asked for pricing for one account, I probably would say their retail pricing is not competitive. The fact that they've given us a discount now because we have multiple servers across multiple accounts, I would say that pricing is about right, but not their retail pricing. It's too expensive.

The Cx 4100 and Cx 8100 expand the capability of the cPacket Integrated Monitoring Fabric (IMF) by delivering wire-speed millisecond precision predictive behavioral analysis and load balancing across up to 4 x 100G links. With the transition to 100G, the ability to reliably monitor at full-line rate becomes a challenge that legacy monitoring solutions struggle to handle. The Cx 4100 and Cx 8100 expand the IMF to support these 100G requirements, and when combined with the other elements of the IMF (cVu, cStor and cClear), they provide the highest level of network visibility and analysis available for end-to-end visibility, capacity planning, and security analytics. With immediate access to the packet-level details customers can identify problems proactively, such as network spikes and bursts, oversubscription, misconfiguration, and equipment failures. With its advanced Distributed Monitoring Architecture, and patented Algorithmic Fabric Chip technology, cPacket can reduce troubleshooting time by over 80% compared to centralized legacy monitoring solutions.
