Datadog vs New Relic in our news:
2020 - New Relic is changing its pricing model to encourage broader monitoring
In the monitoring world, typically when you spin up a new instance, you pay a fee to monitor it. If you are particularly active in any given month, that can result in a hefty bill at the end of the month. That leads to limiting what you choose to monitor, to control costs. New Relic wants to change that and is moving to a model where customers pay by the user instead, with a smaller, less costly data component. The company is also simplifying its product set with the goal of encouraging customers to instrument everything instead of deciding what to monitor and what to leave out to control cost.
