we've revamped our pricing. which is an underwhelming way of saying that honeycomb is now the most straightforwardly and affordably priced option available in the APM, monitoring or observability markets.

i am kind of ridonkulously excited about this change. 8mo in the hopper.

i have been caremad about the pricing shenanigans in this sector since the day i stumbled facefirst into host-based pricing 👇 (and not only that, but "number of distinct hosts seen in a 24h period, aka FUCK YO ASG"-based price rackets)

as a DD user, i ranted about their pricing so much that NR sales started using my tweets in THEIR sales pitches. Mistake.

Man, pricing just shouldn't be a thing you have to think about. You should be able to guess it and tally it up, and It shouldn't bite you in the ass. I'm not saying ours is the cleverest or the best pricing ever, but it's dead simple; no traps.

I know I know, I broke the gag rule and mentioned other tools; I try not to, but I've been crabby about this for howevermanyfuckinyearstoolong.

you wanna charge by host the same whether it's t2.nano or m5a.24xlarge, my ass. mutter.
