We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.

As an early customer, I think we are getting a very good price. There are no additional costs to the standard licensing fees, as far as I know.
I believe that for the six instances we have right now, it's costing us $16,000 per month. There are no additional costs. That is the beauty with them. You negotiate the cost and that's it. We are using their MSSP solution, so they have their own SOC. They monitor for us and then, if needed, they will escalate to us, but they generally handle it. It's one price for the whole thing. And there is also predictable pricing. Right now we are set up for seven domains within each of the instances. If we want to add another domain it would be $500 more. There are no extra costs for something like DDoS, for example.
In Israel, as an educational organization, the pricing, hardware- and software-wise, was very low. The educational market in Israel has very different pricing compared to other markets. Also, it was a multi-payment model. It was not like we needed to buy a license. We paid on a monthly basis. It's pay-as-you-grow. I don't know what the licensing model is today. Thirdly, unlimited support was included. We didn't have to pay for Professional Services hours. Finally, we had a very good termination agreement. We could leave, if I remember correctly, on 60 days' notice. Beyond the cost of the product, we paid for the hardware. That was our decision. Again, it was private cloud, so we were paying for the computing resources.
Reblaze has affordable prices!
Our licensing is on a yearly basis.
