Centralized logging for multiple servers

I was able to use the wayback machine to find the most recent pricing
for splunk. It seems that 1gb / day license costs $10k and 10gb / day
of log volume is going to set you back $30k. Above that and you have
to ask them for pricing. That's really not going to work seeing as how
I'm doing more like 100gb / day. Their current website doesn't have
any prices at all and just asks that you contact their sales

I do like what their website talks about how their product works, it
seems to be pretty much what I need / am looking for. I might be
willing to pay $10k for a license that does 200gb / day, but $30k for
one that does 10gb, that's not going to work for me.
