Pricing and Cost Advice
Pricing must be fair because we just renewed our license a couple months ago.Their support model is a recurring model. It is not a one-off fee. We pay on a yearly basis.They need to improve the licensing. With a few of the companies, when you have the agent installed, once the instance dies, you are released from the license. However, with cloud-based, you have to contact the cloud-based support to release the license and map it to the new instance.We chose to go through the AWS Marketplace because of scalability.Since we are on the free, open source, we don't necessarily get access to their private community and other commercial forums. However, the open source community has been fantastic for us.The amount of time that it takes to build software, test it, pass the testing, and get it deployed onto a server instance has dropped for a developer to do all these processes from about a day to a couple of minutes. Where we previously had a developer who might only have only been able to do one build, deployment, and test per day, they can now do dozens before lunch. That is the ROI.Purchasing on the AWS Marketplace was easy. We don't worry about licensing and keeping track of it. We don't worry about negotiating contracts. It just happens. We get the bill, which is billed to our account. It is very painless.The AWS Marketplace pricing is on par with going directly to CloudBees. It's always nice if it is cheaper, but it's on par.
