We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Compared to other products, Auvik's pricing is more feasible since you get all its features. You pay for licenses on a per network device basis. It monitors hypervisors, but does not bill for that. There are no additional costs, which is something that I like."
"We have an unlimited perpetual license, so we just pay support costs and it can scale throughout the organization."
"At the moment I'm only using 500 sensors. I pay yearly, so it's a cost that's easily swallowed."
"We used a product called SolarWinds in the past, and its cost was high. Whereas, PRTG came in at a third of SolarWind's cost."
"Cost was a factor when selecting this solution, but it just did everything we wanted it to do."
"Our licensing costs are 10,000 euros over three years."
"PRTG is now available as PRTG Enterprise Monitor, and the price varies depending on the total number of sensors the customer buys"
"It is expensive."
"It's an annual license that is based on the number of endpoints that we're tracking and using."
