Checkmk Raw Edition or the Enterprise Edition?

We recommend the Checkmk Raw Edition for small enterprises and hobbyists who are running their own home lab. It's a great way to get started in monitoring your small infrastructure.

For rapidly growing organizations, with infrastructure and business needs that are constantly scaling up, requiring even more automation in their monitoring, we recommend the Enterprise Edition.
