Pricing Example

Let’s say you are looking for a system which can handle 100 users of which you expect about 25 to be connected to Data Drop simultaneously and actively using the system. You should select the Entry Level Data Drop above, which will cost CHF 99.- per month.

If you have 170GB of data, pick the SSD Managed Storage 200GB (pltf.ssd-200-mngd) package, which will cost you CHF 47.- per month. If you need more storage, just subscribe to additional storage packages as needed.

So your total cost per month for this example would be: CHF 99.- + 47.- = CHF 146.- per month

The system does not restrict the number of users, but once you reach performance limits, you can upgrade your server.
