Can I buy an “always on” or long-term license?
Yes. In fact, we expect our largest customers to buy Junosphere on a long-term or yearly basis. Currently, Junosphere offers an Annual Plan in three sizes—10, 50, and 100 VM units per day. In the Annual Plan, the customer has that amount of capacity each day, irrespective of prior usage. Each of these plans bundles different amounts of extra, or overflow, capacity to supplement the fixed daily capacity as well as the daily amount of Junosphere Connectors. The purchase price of the three Annual Plans is $20,000, $100,000, and $200,000 for the 10, 50, and 100 VM unit plan, respectively.
In the Annual Plan, overflow capacity is supplemental regular capacity that allows a customer to go beyond the daily limit of the Annual Plan for a fixed amount of time. For example, the 100 VM unit Annual Plan has 2000 VM units of overflow capacity. This allows you to run a topology of 200 VM units (100 VM units included in the Annual Plan and 100 VM units from the overflow capacity) for 20 days, 150 VM units for 40 days, 110 VM units for 200 days, and so on. It is expended on the same pay-per-use basis as other regular Lab and Classroom (non-annual plan) capacity.
