Pricing and Cost Advice
Open-source solutions like this can be very cost effective for an organization looking for a product that they can quickly implement, as there is no initial cost and there are no license renewal fees. However, it is important to take into consideration some of the related costs that may come along as needed, such as training, support, and product enhancements.
The solution is very effective, despite the low price.
I think Centreon's pricing is fair, especially given the criticality of our system. They were cheaper than the other solutions. The licensing terms were pretty straightforward. I believe it was based on the number of hosts.
The pricing is acceptable.
They only sell four hour slots for support, so if you have just one question, then you need to pay for four hours. Or, you need to wait until you have enough questions to fill those four hours. They are not flexible in this.
For more complex tasks, we use prepaid support days and ask Centreon to come onsite.
Centreon is an open source product. Thus, there is no need for licensing.
It's quite expensive when you use the Enterprise version, but if you compare it to other providers, it's more like a middle-of-the-line product. It's always good to have a price that is lower, but I would say the price is okay because we get very good support and if we have any other issues we can always contact them. There has never been a time when I didn't get help from them.

It is very expensive, but it's well worth the money.
The scalability becomes very expensive quickly.
The license becomes cost prohibitive very quickly.
It is a little overall pricey and expensive, but you get what you pay for.
It can be expensive, but if you have a good configuration, based on what you are looking for, it's okay, it's manageable.
The biggest problem we have with this product is the expense.
Cost is probably the biggest drawback. Compared to some of the newer vendors that have popped up in the space, it's definitely more on the expensive side... [But] it's been able to keep its value, even in the face of the cheaper competition.
Their pricing is very competitive with other solutions... But what I like about NETSCOUT's licensing is that it's shared across all their platforms. They don't create a new licensing scheme for every one of their products. So for nGeniusONE, you buy a certain license level, and it works on all of their products.
