We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"I was using the free, Community Edition."
"We purchased Zabbix for a good price, including support"
"We are using the free, open-source version."
"It's an open-source solution that can be used free of charge."
"This solution is completely open-source, so it is quite affordable."
"Zabbix is open-source so if one wishes to implement it in-house, they must have qualified professionals to set up and optimize databases, Linux/Unix OS, PHP, Apache, and depending on what is monitored, a full-stack network and systems administrator may be needed."
"Zabbix is free but if you use it in production then you have to pay for it."
"My manager is very happy because it doesn't cost anything."
