Customers who want to purchase Alert Logic® Cloud Insight® Essentials will subscribe through the AWS Marketplace. There is a 30-day free trial period from the time a customer successfully signs up for Cloud Insight Essentials.
Once the free trial period ends, Cloud Insight Essentials changes based on the number of accounts that you create to monitor and is pro-rated hourly. An “account” for Cloud Insight Essentials is a deployment you configure in the Alert Logic console. There are no limits to how many resources you can have per deployment, so you can add your entire AWS infrastructure to a single deployment. Alternatively, you can create multiple deployments to meet your needs; however, each deployment counts as an “account” for billing purposes.
Note: Two deployments = two “accounts”
If you opt to include vulnerability scanning with a full Cloud Insight selection, additional charges are calculated based on the number of EC2 instances that are being scanned. The price is tiered by number of hosts, and is also pro-rated by the hour.
Since Cloud Insight Essentials uses the AWS Marketplace SaaS metering service, you can use the service and pay an hourly fee with no commitments. You can cancel at any time and you only pay for what you used.
