All dollar amounts are in USD. Please refer to Side-by-Side Comparison and the linked spreadsheet for additional details and assumptions regarding cost-savings calculations. Comparisons are for illustrative purposes only, and your actual costs are dependent on many factors such as number of users and ingested data in New Relic. Prices, including ones provided as a promotion, are subject to change. The relative value calculations in these tables are based upon the additional New Relic users and data that could be purchased with the cost savings reflected in these scenarios. The New Relic data ingest cost (standard retention) was updated on May 8, 2022, based on ingest pricing updates. The percentage of basic users increased to 30% based on updated averages.
