Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
  • "The price of the solution could be less expensive. You have to pay a lot for each user. There is an additional cost for extra features."
  • "This is an expensive tool."
  • "The price of New Relic APM could be less expensive. We are using the New Relic APM pro account and it is more costly. When compared to competitors the solution's pricing should be much more realistic."
  • "If I remember it correctly, the pricing was based on the core, and the monthly subscription used to cost us $1,500 or $2,000. We had pre-prod and production services. Costing was different for pre-prod and production. For pre-prod, it was 40% less than the production service cost. It was a combined package."

  • "The solution is less expensive than AppNeta."
  • "We feel it's a little bit pricey."
  • "The pricing is fine."

    Many offerings tout observability. How is Honeycomb different? We have defined what Observability is and have built a tool to help modern Dev, DevOps and Site Reliability Engineering teams operate more efficiently. Because it’s all about delivering high quality code, maintaining reliability and getting precious time back.

    We made a critical decision to provide a seamless, current view of your system (from logs to events and traces) in a single data store, regardless of how complex your architecture is. This means you no longer have to toil with multiple tools or stitched-together solutions – burning time as you address issues affecting users.

    We also believe strongly that optimizing systems and debugging should not be difficult and draining, freeing up more time to ship new code. Our approach emphasizes efficiency and knowledge sharing, thereby elevating everyone’s game and ultimately business outcomes.
