Layer7 API Management Pricing and License Cost

Ewan Sadie

Keep in mind the product licensing outside of the vendor stack, e.g., if you opt not to use the embedded SQL.

If you do a TCO of more than five years, then you will see a big jump in costs for some vendors.

Make sure you cater for all environments. We went in with three environments but some businesses that came onboard later on required up to five. This probably depends on the complexity of your business.

We bought the product long ago. At that time it was a reasonably low price and it was a perpetual user's license. There was no need for additional licenses.  

It was a great deal if you look at it in that perspective. I think that there are some costs for maintenance that we are being charged, but that is not really something to worry about and it seems fair.

When it comes to pricing, I think we cracked a good deal with Broadcom on Layer7. It may be because of the COVID-19 situation. Whatever the reason, from a pricing perspective we have found the solution to be a good deal for us.

It was very high at that time. We are a Broadcom CA partner, and we got it only for testing purposes. We didn't pay anything for it.

It is a pricey product, although priced to the market.
