[1] Pricing is based on the number of Managed Units (MUs) you wish to monitor.

An MU is defined as: Compute: 1 Managed Unit = 2 hosts (virtual or physical)

Storage: 1 Managed Unit = 4 TiB of unformatted external capacity in a physical or virtual storage OR = 40 TiB of NetApp StorageGRID, Amazon S3, Dell EMC ECS, Hitachi Content Platform and IBM Cleversafe unformatted capacity (doesn’t account for the compute local storage)

Some examples:

  • If you have 100 hosts and 100 TiB of storage, you would purchase (100/2) + (100/4) = 75 MUs.
  • If you have 200TiB of NetApp StorageGRID and 200TiB of other storage, you would purchase (200/40) + (200/4) = 55 MUs.

Estimate your Managed Units (MU's)

2 hosts (virtual or physical) = 1 MU
4TiB of RAW capacity = 1 MU
4 TiB of provisioned external capacity in a physical or virtual storage = 1 MU
40 TiB of NetApp StorageGRID, Dell EMC ECS, Hitachi Content Platform and IBM Cleversafe unformatted capacity = 1 MU
