Santa Clara, Calif., July 12, 2013 — Caspio, Inc., the leading platform-as-a-service for custom business applications, today announced that it has introduced an entirely new pricing plan that breaks the traditional PaaS pricing model by removing all caps on applications, users, storage, and email messages. Caspio’s new Standard Plan now includes all available platform features and resources to create unlimited web applications, making it the most cost-effective way for companies to utilize do-it-yourself PaaS technology for custom business apps.
A cloud pioneer since 2000, Caspio has led the PaaS industry offering “unlimited user” pricing since its founding. Unlike other platforms, Caspio allows any number of employees, customers, members, partners or web visitors to access applications at no additional cost. The latest pricing change is a reflection of the company’s continued commitment to usage-based pricing that reduces adoption barriers and maximizes the economies of scale available from cloud technology.
Caspio’s pricing is based on data transfer, which the company believes is a fair yet simple metric to measure usage. Customers pay for application usage as measured by data transferring to and from the database servers. For customers with an exceptionally large or high volume of files, Caspio offers a separate file hosting add-on service that includes free unlimited data transfer.
“The cloud has given companies an opportunity to simplify their software delivery and break free from old user-based pricing models. Interestingly, vendors such as Salesforce.com, despite all their leadership claims, have firmly held on to outdated enterprise pricing that deteriorates the promise of the cloud,” says Frank Zamani, Caspio founder and CEO. “We believe that usage-based pricing is as crucial as the cloud delivery itself, and we are proud to be at the forefront of this model since our beginnings in 2000.”
The Caspio Standard Plan is available for all new and existing customers at $249 per month. Visit the Caspio pricing page for more details.
