Pricing and Cost Advice
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.
At the moment I'm only using 500 sensors. I pay yearly, so it's a cost that's easily swallowed.
We have an unlimited perpetual license, so we just pay support costs and it can scale throughout the organization.
We looked at PRTG and SolarWinds. From a cost side perspective, compared to PRTG, and from what you get back from it, PRTG was sort of a hands down the winner.
While I am not the person who deals with pricing, I would say that we pay around 1000 pounds a year.
It is about £4,500 for the first year, then about another 15 to 20 percent annually after that. So, we are looking at about £1000 running costs a year. When you think about how much an outage costs per minute, it's negligible.
I would like it to be more scalable with less spend.
The price is a little high.
The scalability is good, but it comes at a cost. E.g., if you need 100 InfiniStream because you are sending gigs or terabytes of data to one InfiniStream, then you will have to purchase another InfiniStream, which are not cheap.
It can be scalable. It just costs too much. With a company as big as ours, it gets too expensive to accommodate every single site.
This product could be cheaper.
To capture more with the solution that we bought, you have to buy another InfiniStreamNG, and there are only four ports in the back.
