Cost-effective flexible licensing options

Why should you settle for less?

Many monitoring vendors charge per service (also called sensor or monitor). Vendors employing such model tend to initially undersize the solution capacity, advising customers to monitor only a minimum number of services per device (10 or even less), which may prove insufficient in practice. 

When these limitations become apparent, customers are left with the need to upgrade their licenses and incur additional costs.
In most cases the costs are higher than with device-based licensing.

The number of services (sensors) has a significant impact on the quality of monitoring. With a licence based on the number of hosts, the number of services is irrelevant.
In our experience, 5 to 10 services per host are often not sufficient to implement  monitoring quality.

Licensing based on the number of services (sensors) can lead to additional costs for the user or cause the user to reduce the quality of monitoring. So that you do not have to choose between a host licence and a service licence, when you choose i-Vertix IT Monitoring, the host licence allows you to monitor all services at no additional cost.
