Its pricing is unbeatable in comparison to other firewalls. You can have a small instance that could be €80 a month with the hardware underneath. Azure Firewall and FortiGate are out of the question at this price. If you are on a public cloud, you need the underlying infrastructure. Other than that, there is no additional cost. If you have it on-prem, you have to buy the server or the appliance. The hardware cost is replaced with the infrastructure cost in the cloud. You also have costs for the public IPs and underlying VMs, but that's not related to OPNsense. It would be the same for a FortiGate deployment on Azure. You need a FortiGate license, and you need the underlying infrastructure that scales up depending on your needs.

We're a customer and an end-user. We are using the telemetry-free version of the solution. Overall, the solution is quite affordable.

The main cost is the hardware. We don't pay anything for the software.

As an appliance, it's in the medium price range.

The choice of a license on a yearly or monthly basis is optional. The solution is not expensive.

OPNsense is an open-source solution and it is free to use. You need only purchase the hardware.

It is not an expensive product. Basically, I deployed it because it was the fastest solution to satisfy our needs in open source.
