What costs are included?

It all depends on if you are running in our cloud provider account, we call this Run In Our Account (RIOA) or your own account, Run In Your Own Account (RIYOA).

For RIOA we manage the underlying infrastructure costs so the price that you pay is all-inclusive (compute, bandwidth and storage).   

For all RIYOA subscriptions we charge you a service fee based on the size of your deployment for our managed services.  You are responsible for your own cloud provider infrastructure costs.

Do you offer volume discounts?

Yes. For Run-In-Your-Own Account customers you automatically gain access to volume price tiers as the size of your managed service increases.  For Run-In-Our-Account customers volume discounts may be offered on a case-by-case basis.
