We last posted about Pricing in January 2017, and at the time of writing had planned to follow up with more details in the following months. Since then we’ve made no official announcements; I want to briefly explain why there has been a delay, and give insight into what our current plans are.
Following the initial post, we shared the planned pricing with a selection of customers. We received valuable and honest feedback, and as a result we made the decision to rethink our pricing model. We care that our customers are set up to succeed, and so we decided to consult further on use cases and get our pricing right.
We have now finished adjusting our pricing plan for SpatialOS, and have launched a new page on our website which provides an overview of how this will work. In the future, we plan to add much more information to this page, such as price points, calculator tools, FAQs and examples. For the moment, we want to provide a clear picture of how our pricing will be structured, and ask those in need of more pricing information for their project to “Contact Us” via the web form so we can discuss your plans.
Our open platform is still designed to encourage you to experiment freely. Our forums, documentation and development tools are free to use, and you can run limited cloud deployments for testing and prototyping without charge.
If you have further questions, please let us know. Otherwise, we hope you continue to enjoy use of the open platform, and look forward to your feedback as more pricing information is released.
