Pricing and Cost Advice
"We have an annual contract with Kentik that we renew each year for a set number of licenses. We also have some burstable licenses which we can spin up and spin down, and those are paid as they are used."

"Compared to some of the other tools we have, it's incredibly reasonably priced.""Our entire solution, amortized over five years, is in the vicinity of $40,000 to $50,000 a year.""We pay our one-off cost for the licenses, per device, in blocks of 50. And then we pay an annual maintenance fee of about $15,000 Australian, which is, at this point in time, about $9,000 US, for those 250 devices. The upfront costs for the 250-license use, were about $50,000 Australian, which is about $32,000 US.""The license is per device. We have 50 devices.""We just renewed. The pricing is 5,000 euro per year. This is the final price. All tax (20 percent) is included.""We have increased the license over time. We have added more licenses as the network has grown.""There is a recurring maintenance fee after the initial purchase or if we want the license upgrade.""There are no extra costs. It's about $8,000 a year. The bang for the buck (cost) is definitely a plus."
