The pricing was recently raised. They are not as competitive as they were before.

As with all commercially supported open source software, there is no license fee for this solution, users buy annual or multi-year support subscriptions.

There is a free tier and a paid support tier. If you do not need support, then the solution is free to use. If you need support then there is an option for that as well.

I haven't kept up on licensing costs, I haven't been selling or supporting products on a day to day basis.

When we first implemented this product, we had licenses for support. Although because of the stability of the systems, we did not use it much so we scaled down on support.

Their performances and pricing are comparable.  RHEL is more popular in terms of security, stability and reliability. RHAL has more addons to offer and offers more popular cloud services too.
