NCache Pricing

NCache prices on this page are the same for both on-premises and the cloud (Azure, AWS, and others) on a BYOL basis, and also for both Windows and Linux platforms.

NCache prices are different for perpetual licenses versus annual subscription licenses. NCache Enterprise offers both perpetual licenses and annual subscriptions whereas NCache Professional only offers annual subscriptions.

Free 60-day Trial (fully working) available for both NCache Enterprise and NCache Professional (for evaluation purposes only).

Free Dev / QA Licenses

***NCache offers free Dev and QA licenses. These include Dev Workstations and Dev / QA Servers. All of them include NCache API and a stand-alone local cache. Dev Workstations can access the local cache without any performance limitations. And they can also access remote cache clusters but with performance limitations.

Dev / QA Server is a stand-alone cache server with a max of 2 remote clients, a max 2 GB aggregated cache size, and performance limitations. Local clients are free and not counted.

Easily Move Licenses

For both NCache Enterprise and Professional, you can purchase a combination of client-server and server-only licenses for different environments. But, within one environment, you must use only one licensing scheme. And, you can move licenses from one environment to another by deactivating / reactivating them when needed. Additionally, you can use the same licenses (thru BYOL) between on-premises and Azure / AWS and other clouds, and also from one cloud platform to another. Moving licenses is only possible either for subscription licenses or if your Annual Maintenance and Support is active then for perpetual licenses too.

Pro-rated Additional Subscription Licenses or Support

For both NCache Enterprise and Professional, you can purchase additional licenses in the middle of your annual subscription on a prorated basis by paying the same annual price. You’re charged on a monthly basis until the end of the subscription period and the initial month is pro-rated on a half-monthly basis. Additionally, whenever you purchase additional licenses, they’re reserved until the end of your annual subscription and automatically included in the subscription at renewal time.

You can buy additional perpetual licenses in the middle of your Annual Maintenance and Support period and although the licenses are owned by you perpetually, you only have to pay Annual Maintenance and Support on a pro-rated basis in the same fashion as Annual Subscription pro-ration.

NCache Enterprise and NCache Professional are online products only, available free to evaluate for 60 days with all features and no performance or other limitations. You can either download it from our website or use a preconfigured Azure / AWS cloud VM. Upon download or registration, you are given an eval key that you must enter at install time or afterward in case of a cloud VM. This activates NCache for 60 days but you can extend it 30 days at a time and up to 180 days total by contacting sales.

Upon purchase, you will receive a license key that you can use either on-premises or in any cloud as BYOL. Entering the license key converts the product from evaluation mode to a purchased copy without any re-installation. And, the product works for one or more years (based on how many years of subscription you have purchased) or perpetually if your licenses are perpetual. And, at the end of this subscription period, you must renew the subscription or NCache stops working. However, you’re given ample alerts at renewal time.

- NCache Enterprise is licensed on both annual subscription and perpetual basis whereas NCache Professional is licensed on an annual subscription basis in both client/server and server-only licensing models. Grandfathering option is available for existing NCache Enterprise customers with perpetual client/server licensing.

* In client/server licensing, one license is equal to 4 vCPUs and a license is multiples of 4-vCPUs. Min licenses per server are required. Same for the Unix platform. In server-only licensing, the clients are free and the servers are licensed based on a combination of RAM & vCPUs matching with a plan and where one or more licenses are needed for the matching plan (including minimum licenses per server). In server-only, you purchase licenses (and not servers) and each plan uses a set number of licenses. This allows you to change server-only plans without a new purchase by using your licenses differently.

** Remote Client includes NCache API, and for NCache Enterprise also Client Cache (InProc/OutProc). Can access cache clusters remotely. Multiple connections from the same VM / Docker instance are still one client.

**** Service packs to the product for fixing bugs and problems are provided free of charge even without annual maintenance and support. However, new releases of the product are not provided free of charge without annual maintenance and support.
