Pricing and Cost Advice
"It didn't scale well from the cost perspective. We had a custom package deal.""The price is better than some competing products.""Pricing is somewhat affordable compared to other solutions but in order to really lower the costs of other products you need to plan very carefully your resources usage, otherwise, it can get expensive real quick.""It is easy to run up a large bill, so become familiar with the cost of each piece of your bill and use the metrics they supply to estimate and monitor your bill.""Pricing seemed easy until the bill came in and some things were not accounted for.""The cost is high and this can be justified if the scale of the environment is big.""My advice is to really keep an eye on your overage costs, as they can spiral really fast.""If you do your homework, you'll find that if you're really concerned with cost, it's good."
