Monitor performance, not spending

Sematext is free to start and affordable as you grow. We offer a flexible pricing model for Cloud customers no matter the size of your business. Sematext also provides more affordable licensing than Splunk for On-Premises customers, thus allowing you to increase visibility not costs. Annual licenses of Sematext Enterprise for APM begin at $5,000/year, which is a fraction of the equivalent Splunk annual license for the same infrastructure size. Thanks to volume discounting, pricing for larger Sematext licenses also compare very competitively with Splunk.

Customize your Plan

Only looking for a log monitoring solution and already have APM covered? No problem. Sematext allows for licensing of individual functionality in the Cloud and On Premises. Splunk, on the other hand, packages log monitoring together with APM as part of the DPM platform, which is only available with annual or perpetual licenses. Additionally, Sematext offers fully customized pricing – pay only for what you want to monitor.

Please contact sales@sematext.com for pricing inquiries.

Easy as Pie

It can take as little as a few minutes to set up your log shippers and to start to get value from your data. With Sematext Cloud/Enterprise you can use any log shipping format or shipper you want (syslog, Logstash, Fluentd, Flume, nxlog, Filebeat), inspect your logs via the Sematext UI or Elasticsearch API, use the built-in Kibana or your own existing Kibana/Grafana instance for visualizations.

Need more help? No problem. We offer an extensive onboarding process to help you setup your dashboard in as little as 3 minutes.
