Pricing and Cost Advice

The price is not bad. They have a yearly renewal fee, and the pricing is exactly where we expect it to be.Purchasing on the AWS Marketplace was simple, effective, and easy.We found purchasing process the product on the AWS Marketplace to be very good.Some parts of purchasing through AWS Marketplace are good, such as this product was easy to find and launch.
