Which Edition is Right For Your Business?

Hyperic HQ comes in two product editions. Each edition includes a combination of powerful monitoring and management features designed to meet the unique needs of your company.

As you'll see in the comparison chart below, the edition you need depends on the size of your company, which monitoring components you need, and the level of customization, integration, and support you require.

  • Hyperic HQ Open Source Edition: Full function monitoring and management for small environments with low to medium complexity
  • Hyperic HQ Enterprise Edition: Full function monitoring and management, with automation and intelligence features designed for larger, more complex environments.

Both editions can be downloaded for free. The Hyperic HQ Enterprise trial is a fully functional, time-limited evaluation copy that can manage up to 50 resources. For extended trial durations or pricing information, contact Hyperic Sales. Hyperic HQ support subscriptions are also available for an additional fee.
