We sincerely believe open-source software to be invaluable.
So, not only that it is pointless to put a price tag on it but it would also raise ethical, moral and, possibly, legal questions.
So, what are we pricing here, after all?
Well, to put it simply, we are pricing the hardware resources necessary to run the application(s) of your choice.
Each app has its own software dependencies and hardware requirements and we have pre-packaged everything you need to hit the ground and start running inside "virtual machines" optimized for performance.
Essentially, each "virtual machine" has 1 Virtual CPU (but can have many), a certain amount of RAM (Random Access Memory) (but can have more) and a certain amount of storage (guess what, you can have more storage, too).
The most critical resource for a virtual machine is the amount of dedicated RAM so, as a general pricing guideline, you may notice that, the higher the RAM requirements, the higher the price.
|RAM required||512 MB||768 MB||1024 MB||1536 MB||2048 MB||…||7168 MB|
|Monthly Subscription||5.99 €||8.99 €||11.99 €||14.99 €||17.99 €||…||44.99 €|
What else in included in the price?
- cost of processing (Virtual CPUs)
- cost of high-performance storage
- cost of electricity
- cost of high-speed Internet connectivity
- cost of services (i.e. administration, maintenance, etc.)
We do understand that you may want to "test the water before jumping in".
