Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "We are looking for something that will add value and fit for purpose. Freeware is good if you want to try something quickly without putting in much money. However, as far as our decision is concerned, I don't think it helps. At the end of the day, if we are convinced that a capability is required, we will ask for the funding. Then, when the funding is available, we will go for an enterprise solution only."
  • "The licensing is dependent on the volume that is flowing. If you go for their support services, it will cost some more money, but I think it is worth it, especially if you are just starting your journey."
  • "It could be cheaper. Its licensing is on a yearly basis."

    Questions from the Community
    Top Answer:Guaranteed Messaging allows for us to transport messages between on-prem and the cloud without any loss of data.
    Top Answer:The pricing and licensing were very transparent and well-communicated by our account manager. There was no free version when we evaluated it.
    Top Answer:The ease of management could be approved. The GUI is very good, but to configure and manage these devices programmatically in the software version is not easy. For example, if I would like to spin up… more »

    Reviews from Real Users

    PubSub+ Event Broker stands out among its competitors for a number of reasons. Two major ones are its ability to communicate with numerous subscribers and its scalability. PeerSpot users take note of the advantages of these features in their reviews:

    Jitendra J., a websphere MQ specialist at a maritime company, notes, “The way we can replicate information and send it to several subscribers is most valuable. It can be used for any kind of business where you've got multiple users who need information. Any company, such as LinkedIn, with a huge number of subscribers and any business, such as publishing, supermarket, airline, or shipping can use it.”

    The head of enterprise architecture and digital innovation at a tech vendor writes, “This solution reduces the latency to access changes in real-time and the effort required to onboard a new subscriber. It also reduces the maintenance of each of those interfaces because now the publisher and subscribers are decoupled. Event Broker handles all the communication and engagement.”

    Another PeerSpot user, who is a senior project manager at a financial services firm, describes, "Going from something where we had outages and capacity issues constantly to a system that was able to scale with the massive market data and messaging spikes that happened during the initial stages of the COVID crisis in March, we were able to scale with 40 plus percent growth in our platform over the course of days."

    The Striim platform makes it easy to ingest, process, and deliver real-time data across diverse environments in the cloud or on-premise, helping you rapidly adopt a modern data architecture. With Striim you can build streaming data pipelines to cloud environments - such as Microsoft Azure, Amazon AWS, and Google Cloud Platform - as well as Kafka, Hadoop, NoSQL and relational databases (on-premises or in the cloud) with reliability, security, and scalability.
