At the beginning of the month, Astaro announced our new licensing model to the world.
This model is designed to better meet the needs of our partner community and our end-users. Below you will find the details of the new licensing model. We rearranged the former Base License: Out of the advanced network security features we created a dedicated subscription called “Network Security” while our free “Essential Firewall” contains basic networking and network security features. We also adjusted the maintenance and support.
We decided to update our licensing model to create a more flexible licensing; now customers can buy exactly what they need. With this new model the clustering and user upgrades processes are much easier. This new model also includes a more competitive price point for smaller appliances. This will make it easier for our partners to initiate conversations with prospective customers with smaller budgets.
