Splunk Pricing and License Cost

Kenn Brodhagen
DevOps Engineer at Amplify
The pricing seems good relative to the other vendors that we have had here. However, they need to find ways to be more flexible with the licensing and be able to deal with situations where we start generating more logs. Maybe having some controls in the Splunk interface to turn it off, so we don't have to change anything in our application. We have an existing contract with Splunk, so it makes sense to stay with them for now. Our license is for a 100 GB/logs a day. View full review »

Get free PS if you can (ask) or USE THE DOCS. The documentation will get you to success. If you are not getting more value out of Splunk than the license you are paying, then you are doing something wrong and should spend a tiny bit more to get a consultant like Splunxter.com to help you.

Pricing is one factor that hurts everybody on the market; the client, the reseller, everybody that touches it. Only Splunk makes money. It is hard to have it for the long term if it's a stretch for your budget. Pricing becomes a problem and people are just focused on numbers rather than creating a vision for the entire product. That is the biggest factor I found with Splunk, that they just want to make money and they don't care about anything else. They lost national, country-level projects because of this attitude.

I assume that the pricing is reasonable, because if it was too costly, there are other alternatives. However, with some of the other solutions, you have to spend time on them and manage them yourself. It might also take you three times to get it right. So, Splunk may be more costly upfront, but in the long run, it saves on time and man-hours. View full review »

Splunk is on expensive side. There are some premium add-ons like Splunk Enterprise Security or ITSI which makes it more expensive. View full review »
