Some proficloud services, such as the device management service can be used free of charge. Other services, including TSD allow customers to test them free of charge, but require payment for actual production workloads.
Cloud pricing ist often complicated, but that’s not the case for proficloud. We always make sure to offer payment models, which are easy to understand, enabling our customers to always understand their true costs. This means for you that in the Time Series Data Service, for example, you pay per metric that you send to the cloud. With this model, we naturally offer you suitable packages, so that you have maximum freedom in cost calculation and can rely on the exact costs incurred.
In other services (e.g. ImpulseAnalytics) you only pay per device for one year. This is based on the business model, which was developed especially for this service and offers the user an easy way to calculate the costs.
As soon as you book a service, you will receive a booking confirmation by e-mail, as well as a booking confirmation within Proficloud.io. You can use the booked service directly after the booking. You will receive a separate e-mail with the conditions (taxes, legal framework) from Phoenix Contact that apply to you.
