Corvil Pricing and License Cost

Senior Network Engineer at a financial services firm with 501-1,000 employees
My perspective can be summarised as Corvil is a bit expensive but you get what you pay for. I like the way they've decoupled the hardware now. That makes sense because hardware's a commodity now. It's natural that they had to do that. Everything's based on the licensing side now. The way they do the packs is fair. It iss very flexible in that we are not charged per decoder; we are charged for a certain pack. Whether we use 1 decoder or 20 decoders, as long as they're in the same pack, there's no extra charge. It's expensive but it's no more than I would expect for this kind of product. They throw in some things for free, which is nice. We've just started doing the UTC clock sync, where you can use the Corvil to analyse your time signals and generate a report. They don't charge for that kind of stuff, which is nice. I remember I was pleasantly surprised when I found that out. Expensive but fair is how I'd summarise it. View full review »

I'm not generally involved in the cost side of things, but I know we bought a box from Corvil and it was $200,000 for one big CNE. Then there are obviously the recurring maintenance fees. The licensing is perpetual but the maintenance fees are not. View full review »

The pricing is very expensive. Corvil could work on the pricing. It is also pricey versus its competitors. View full review »
