In addition to private users, this new edition also allows administrators in companies to use UCS without having to buy maintenance subscriptions. Thus, UCS can be deployed as a platform for the operation, management and integration of enterprise applications from the App Center on premises, in the cloud or in hybrid environments. For this Core Edition we will also provide regular security updates and upgrade possibilities.
Alongside the introduction of the free UCS Core Edition, which can also be used for commercial use and for an unlimited number of users unlike the previous „free for personal use“ license, we have also adjusted and expanded the scope of our Enterprise subscriptions.
Free Core Edition and Four Fee-Based Subscriptions
We now offer four fee-based models for UCS:
- Base Subscription
- Standard Subscription
- Premium Subscription and
- „UCS Cloud Edition“ for cloud service providers
Our UCS Base, Standard and Premium Subscriptions now include the license for the first 10 clients within a domain.
As such, the use of commercial subscriptions become even more attractive to smaller companies. These service subscriptions guarantee our customers professional support, extended software maintenance, product liability, protection against copyright infringements, service level agreements and much more. The separate categories differ predominantly in their service support level and the support processes on offer.
All UCS editions with their different support services can be found in this overview on our website.
