Depending on your use cases, it's prudent to look around at some other solutions if you feel there are others that offer similar features. If you choose Eggplant, you should evaluate how you're going to use it and make a smart decision about the number of developer- and execution-only licenses you purchase to maximize your budget. We found that going heavier on execution-only licenses has been a way to reduce our costs and maximize our ability to benefit from the software. Beyond the standard licensing fees there is just the cost of the resources it takes to do the work of utilizing Eggplant. And that is much better than the alternative of manual testing. There are almost negligible hardware costs. We have Eggplant running on commodity workstations that aren't anything special or expensive. I wouldn't consider it a significant expense to host it.

In terms of deployment of the solution, we have an internal server in a private cloud running the licensing machine and we have three dev licenses for the product as well as two run-time licenses. The development license allows you to run Eggplant Digital Automation Intelligence and allows you to test it and run your script. The runtime license is what is used when you set up a schedule. All it needs is a run-time license to run the executables and run the tests. But since you don't need the full Eggplant Digital Automation Intelligence Functional IDE, you just need the run-time license.
