SoftNAS™ Announces Annual Pricing on AWS®
Provides discount for SoftNAS on Amazon EC2
Houston, TX (July 15, 2014) – SoftNAS™ today announced annual pricing for SoftNAS™ on AWS Marketplace, which provides a discount from the established hourly pricing structure for SoftNAS running on Amazon Web Services (AWS).
“We’re thrilled that AWS Marketplace has added annual pricing so that SoftNAS can continue to deliver the same reliable functionality with more flexible pricing options to cater to the needs of our AWS customers,” said Mike Goodwin, SoftNAS GM and COO.
Annual subscriptions are usually preferred by enterprise and government customers who allocate funds for their software expenses in advance and have already determined which product suits their long-term requirements.
For customers who prefer to dynamically spin their storage use up or down as needed – such as in the case of the rapidly expanding DevOps field – an annual subscription to SoftNAS may be purchased to cover steady-state production workloads, while implementing hourly pricing to meet development and QA needs.
SoftNAS has seen considerable growth since launching on AWS Marketplace in 2013, providing fast, reliable, and flexible data protection on the trusted Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2).
“We are excited to have SoftNAS offer their software with annual pricing on AWS Marketplace,” said Terry Hanold, Vice President, Cloud Commerce, Amazon Web Services, Inc. “With SoftNAS available on both hourly and annual pricing, customers can quickly launch new initiatives without large up-front costs, while taking advantage of material savings for steady-state, long-term workloads.”
