Does anyone else think that, while this looks like a decent tool which gives quite a thorough report, it is vastly over-priced?

We have about 60 servers here and I have been quoted nearly £18k for an unlimited license, and that's only for 1 year! Even a 50 server license was over £13k. For a tool that I would realistically be using only a handful of times on each server I'm not sure I can justify that amount of money.

I agree with James... I looked at product about a year ago and although it appeared to be a really good tool, the price we were quoted was extremely high. Especially as James stated that it would only be used a handful of times on each server per year.

This is overpriced and therefore I would just stay away. You can probably find cheaper alternatives.

Does anyone know if I buy the unlimited license for SQL Server, if I have to pay separate for their Oracle version?
