Pricing for UNIX Health Check

Our price
We have a simple pricing structure: UNIX Health Check software can be licensed for 3,750 USD, when purchased directly online, for either UNIX Health Check for AIX and for UNIX Health Check for Red Hat Enterprise Linux. This includes updates and software support for the first year. The price is for a site license, and as such, both products can be installed on as many UNIX servers as you wish (as long as these UNIX servers are owned by the same organization for which the license was purchased, and as long as all these UNIX servers are located within the same country).

Through December 31st, 2017, UNIX Health Check for Red Hat Enterprise Linux is available for an introductory price of 2,500 USD.

If you license both products, UNIX Health Check for AIX and UNIX Health Check for Red Hat Enterprise Linux, a discount of 20% will apply.

After the first year, you can renew your license for the following year, for 2,500 USD per year, per software product.

UNIX Health Check software licenses include technical support, and updates to our software for the duration of the license period.

Save money!
Far more interesting is the cost saved by using software of UNIX Health Check. In a recent IDC study on server related costs, it was clearly shown that not buying the actual hardware, not the power and cooling of the servers, but the manpower needed to manage the systems is the largest part of costs associated with running UNIX servers. A tool that makes managing UNIX systems easier and quicker is needed; it helps standardize the server configuration, and results in less downtime for servers. The more best practices are applied to UNIX servers, the better they'll run, and the less downtime will occur. As a result, the UNIX administrators can manage a larger number of servers, and can focus on more important tasks and/or projects. That will help in bringing down cost of managing servers, and help avoid costly downtimes.


Restrictions
UNIX Health Check can only be used on all UNIX servers owned by one company or any of its subsidiaries within a single country. It is not allowed to use the software on any UNIX servers that are not assets of the same company for which a license of UNIX Health Check was acquired.

UNIX Health Check for AIX can only be used on systems that run the IBM AIX operating system. UNIX Health Check for Red Hat Enterprise Linux can only be used on systems that run the Red Hat Enterprise Linux operating system.


We're an outsourcing company. Can we use UNIX Health Check software?
If your company owns all the hardware that runs UNIX, even though it is in use for multiple customers, yes you certainly can. There's no need to purchase multiple copies from UNIX Health Check for either UNIX Health Check for AIX and/or UNIX Health Check for Red Hat Enterprise Linux. If your company manages and maintains the servers of several customers, either at a customer site, or within a company-owned data center, but the physical hardware and servers are assets of the customers, each of your customers' needs to purchase their own license from UNIX Health Check.


We're a consulting company. Can we use UNIX Health Check software?
If your company does consulting efforts for customers, e.g. performing one-time health checks of client servers, then UNIX Health Check software is an excellent tool to use. You would only have to purchase a license once for either UNIX Health Check for AIX or for UNIX Health Check for Red Hat Enterprise Linux, or both, and it can be run on any AIX and/or Red Hat Enterprise Linux server of any customer. The UNIX Health Check software needs to be removed from the customers' servers as soon as the consulting effort is complete (as in: go in, run UNIX Health Check software / produce the report, remove the software).


Technical consultancy
If you need additional technical consultancy for AIX and Red Hat Enterprise Linux systems, beyond what is available through the technical support that is included with a license for UNIX Health Check, such as on-site assistance, assistance with issues on your UNIX systems (not related to UNIX Health check) or assistance in developing customized check scripts for your organization, or any other AIX and Red Hat Enterprise Linux technical consultancy, we can help with that as well. We have assisted many customers with DR exercises, moving and racking systems, installation of systems, fail-over tests, and health check or quick scan analysis.

There is a charge of 159 USD per hour for technical consultancy. Travel and expenses are not included. Feel free to contact us if you wish to receive a quote tailored to your needs:
