Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
Lifecycle, to the best of my recollection, had the best pricing compared with other solutions.Pricing is decent. It's not horrible. It's middle-of-the-road, as far as our ranking goes. They're a little bit more but that's also because they provide more.The license fee may be a bit harder for startups to justify. But it will save you a headache later as well as peace of mind. Additionally, it shows your own customers that you value security stuff and will protect yourselves from any licensing issues, which is good marketing too.In addition to the license fee for IQ Server, you have to factor in some running costs. We use AWS, so we spun up an additional VM to run this. If the database is RDS that adds a little bit extra too. Of course someone could run it on a pre-existing VM or physical server to reduce costs. I should add that compared to the license fee, the running costs are so minimal they had no effect on our decision to use IQ Server.Our licensing costs are on an annual basis. The Sonatype licensing model is transparent with no hidden costs or holes.The price is good. We certainly get a lot more in return. However, it's also hard to get the funds to roll out such a product for the entire firm. Therefore, pricing has been a limiting factor for us. However, it's a fair price.Pricing is comparable with some of the other products. We are happy with the pricing.We're pretty happy with the price, for what it is delivering for us and the value we're getting from it.
