We recently made a couple of updates to our licensing structure based on feedback from users and partners. These changes are applicable to the Professional Edition of Applications Manager.
Here is a quick summary of the updates:
1. Option to buy 10 monitor licenses
We’re offering new licensing options for the Professional Edition, which previously started at 25 monitors. Users can now buy a 10-monitor license. The 10-monitor license costs $395/year for annual subscriptions.
The 10-monitor licensing option is useful for:
Users who want to start small before upgrading to a bigger deployment later on.
Free Edition users who want to try a paid account but have budget constraints.
2. Option to buy 500 monitor licenses
On the other end of the Professional Edition licensing spectrum, we have added an option for buying 500 monitor licenses at $10,995/year for annual subscriptions.
The 500-monitor licensing option is useful for:
Professional Edition customers who currently have a 250-monitor license subscription but want to add more monitors without going for a distributed architecture setup.
Users who cannot invest in managed servers or allocate systems for managed servers but still want to scale their deployment.
The licensing changes were rolled out in June 2021. Here is a screenshot from our online store showing the new licensing options:
