Pricing and Cost Advice
We have an unlimited perpetual license, so we just pay support costs and it can scale throughout the organization.
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.
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.
If you are not too sure about it, try the free version. Then, if you like it, you can go to the paid version and roll it out.
We have a perpetual license for this solution, and my impression is that this solution is cheap.
The pricing is very expensive for SolarWinds. That's a huge disadvantage for it.
The pricing needs to be improved. It is too high. One full engine costs around $10 000, which is why we don't have high availability right now.
You have to license it per year, for the support. You don't really need to have support once you've already set it up. Once you install SolarWinds, you can skip on the licensing. It will still work.
I believe the original setup cost was around $3500 with an annual cost of around $1200-$1500 to renew the support license. This would bring the average day-to-day cost of around $5-$6 over three years.
