"Only one payment and it includes support, updates, new versions, and access to the complete library of plugins except for SAP and z/OS.""Pandora FMS is easy to implement and the pricing of licenses is competitive.""You get the license and it includes updates, new versions, and access to the complete library of modules.""My rule of thumb would be that if you need more than thirty agents, and you lack an automation tool such as Chef or Puppet, you will save a lot of time and money going to the Enterprise edition.""In terms of money, the Enterprise version is the cheapest that I have found after a market study.""The open-source version offers 100% functionality and the hardware requirements for a solution like this one are very modest.""Growing the solution or migrating to the Enterprise version is easy, and various plans are available.""The Open Source Community Edition is great to just explore the software, or use it on medium-sized infrastructures."
