OpenNebula Systems, the company behind the OpenNebula project, have just announced a new pricing plan for OpenNebula Support Subscriptions. With the new plan, the aim is to be as easy to work with as possible, including complete transparency about pricing, no complicated plans, lower cost, and a maximum cost per OpenNebula instance (“zone”) that is achieved beyond 50 servers in Xen/KVM clouds and 5 vCenter instances in VMware clouds. This avoids having to track and manage individual server or vCenter instance count enabling you to take advantage of the elastic nature of cloud, especially as you scale your infrastructure.
Many of our existing customers will see a reduction on their next renewal. You can now buy a Basic Support Subscription for a single OpenNebula instance and an unlimited number of servers, VMs, CPUs and cores for only €12.000 euros ($15,000 in USA).
OpenNebula is completely vendor-neutral and without hype, with a strong focus on real-life needs, developing the best technology, and serving users. We love open-source and take pride on being an open-source company. There is only one completely free, fully open source, OpenNebula software. We do not develop proprietary extensions that lock you in. We hope the new pricing plans make it even simpler to setup your perfect open cloud environment with commercial support, based on your favourite Cloud Management Platform!
Our support subscriptions bring many benefits but the main one is that they help support the OpenNebula open-source project. We want to thank all our customers for their confidence in us.
Stay tuned and as always, let us know what you think!
