Licenses for SAM can be really expensive if you go by the traditional model of calculating "monitors" per server. These are typically individual parameters being monitored by the SAM module. The "newer" licensing model takes away the pain of calculating the individual components that need to be monitored and is simply a node based license. The higher the number of nodes the better your pricing will be. 


The newer license model gives you the flexibility to start small, as low as 10 nodes and scale upwards to 1000's of nodes.

Its licensing is on a yearly basis. It is just the standard price, but it can vary depending on the current rate of the dollar.

We had a yearly license, and the pricing could be improved.

The cost should be a bit less. It's high right now, or higher than it should be.

Price can always be lower. It is neither on the expensive side nor on the cheap side. We have worked with them for a lot of years, so we get a discount due to the size of the installation.

I don't have any information on pricing, as that is handled by our procurement team.

Pricing is quite cheap. It starts at 2,440 euros. For that, you have the ability to monitor a couple of nodes. You also get one year of maintenance and support included in the price.

The licenses start from USD 3000.00 and go up to USD 20,000.00 for the year. It's a perpetual license. Nothing is free in SolarWinds, anything that you need is an additional cost. When you compare SolarWinds to Broadcom, Broadcom has a simpler policy, you can install it and you don't have the complex licensing where you need a separate license for every little thing. Customers don't understand the complexity of the licensing when you need a separate license for the application and storage as an example. With SolarWinds, you have to pay for every feature.

The product might cost you $30,000 USD to buy, but scaling this solution requires the purchase of additional polling engines at $20,000 USD each.

The price is reasonable. The price of the package we bought was a differentiating factor in choosing this solution.

I can't say what the exact pricing is, but I know it's not too expensive.
