ESTC resource-based pricing…

Really emphasising the benefits of their pricing model for SIEM. They state key challenges for ‘traditional’ pricing models for SIEM are:

  1. deployment on customers schedule - no overpurchasing
  2. have to decide prior to data collection what data is collected
  3. breaches may require more resources than current contract allows
  4. Unpredictable billing given the dynamic nature of cloud resources (containers, servers scaling up and down)
  5. Having to pay for different ways to access the data (eg: analytics)

It’s not immediately clear to me how Splunk, DataDog, NewRelic pricing models compare. Anyone have any thoughts?
