NCache Cloud Pricing

Pay as You Go and 1-Year Reserved

NCache Cloud 5.1 in Azure / AWS offers both client-server and server-only licensing at the prices below. This is a Pay as You Go model so you only pay for what you use on hourly basis. For on-premises and cloud BYOL pricing, please click at the link below:

In NCache Cloud, your cache server VMs are running inside your own cloud environment (subscription, VNET) and not hosted by Alachisoft. As a result, the prices mentioned on this page are only for NCache Cloud licenses and VM cost is not included. This gives you extra security and control over your VMs as Alachisoft has no access to them (just like in BYOL or on-premises). It also boosts performance because cache servers are sitting very close to your application in the same VNET.

Free 60-day Trial available both Enterprise and Professional editions (for evaluation only).

Pro-rated Additional Licenses in 1-Year Reserved Plan

In a 1-Year Reserved Plan, you can reserve additional licenses in the middle of your annual subscription on a prorated basis by paying the same discounted "1-Year Reserved" price. You're charged on monthly basis and any prorated initial month is charged as a full month. Additionally, whenever you reserve additional licenses, they're reserved until the end of your annual subscription. And, you must reserve 3 months or more to get this discounted price.

But, if your need for additional licenses is less than 3 months, it is for some months in the middle of your subscription and not until the end of your subscription, or it is not whole months at a time, then just use these additional licenses on the regular "Pay as You Go" prices mentioned above. In this case, you’re charged on hourly basis and billed on monthly basis on your actual usage.

NCache Enterprise: Zone Redundancy & Geo-Replication

NCache Enterprise has a powerful WAN Replication through Bridge Topology feature that is available in Azure / AWS clouds for creating Zone Redundancy within a region or Geo Replication across multiple regions. You can add two or more clustered caches that are identical copies of each other in active-passive and active-active replication through NCache Bridge Topology. Read more about it in Multi-Datacenter WAN Replication in NCache.

Notes:
Please note that you only pay for NCache Cloud licenses here and not underlying VMs which cloud provider bills you separately.

NCache Cloud licenses in Azure / AWS are not transferrable across cloud platforms or between cloud and on-premises. This is because you are billed by Azure and AWS through your cloud subscription with them and not by Alachisoft.

NCache Enterprise and NCache Professional are online products only, available free for 60 days with all features and no performance or other limitations. You can use either download 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 afterwards in case of 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.

NCache Cloud is purchased directly from Azure / AWS marketplace. Upon purchase you can either have NCache Cloud Portal automatically configure and deploy NCache VMs as cache servers in your Azure / AWS subscription. Or, you can obtain the license key, use a pre-configured NCache VM from Azure / AWS marketplace, and activate it as NCache Cloud yourself. This latter option gives you total security as NCache Cloud Portal doesn’t access your subscription environment.

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

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

* In client/server licensing, a license is multiples of 4-vCPUs. Min licenses per server are required. Same for 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 Enterprise edition also Client Cache (InProc/OutProc). Can access cache clusters remotely. Multiple connections from the same VM / Docker instance is still one client.

*** Dev Workstation & Dev / QA Server includes API and stand-alone local cache. As Dev Workstation, it can access local cache and also remote cache cluster but with performance limitations. And, as Dev / QA Server, it becomes a stand-alone cache server with max 2 remote clients, max 2 GB aggregated cache size, and performance limitations. Local clients are free and not counted.

**** Email-only Support provided for less than $9K annual orders of NCache Professional Cloud Service.
