DBS Pricing

There are two steps to pricing the DBS software as a service (SaaS):

  1. Calculate your Subscription Price, and then
  2. Pick your Platform
Educational pricing is now available. Please contact us for details.
 
Calculate your Subscription Price

The DBS is priced on a subscription basis and can be utilized on one of two platforms: as an Appliance installed on your local network, or on the Cloud.

All pricing is based upon the number of subscribers (by IP address) that you want managed by the DBS. Discounts are offered on purchases for quantities starting at 100 managed subscribers. All charges must be pre-paid, in US dollars, before an Appliance can be shipped or cloud services can be turned on, and only then is that price locked in for the term*.

The Cloud Platform
 

We offer the DBS on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) EC2 platform virtually anywhere in the world where we can access your routers.

The DBS staff sizes, configures, locates, and manages all AWS EC2 instances for you.

Actual hosting fees are charged monthly along with our management fee. Hosting fees are based upon the size of the required instance, hours of execution, data center location, I/Os, disk space, and potentially bandwidth used. Note: a Micro EC2 instance can only handle a maximum of 50 subscribers.

Pros

  • No additional hardware to install locally
  • Best support possible
  • Automatic back ups of the DBS database

Cons

  • A port forward on a public IP is required for each router behind the firewall that is managed by the DBS
  • Hosting charged monthly on credit card
  • Charges for I/O
  • 18% hosting management fee on actual hosting charges
 
* All prices are subject to change without notice.
** Monthly invoicing is only available on the Cloud Platform.

... everyone is enjoying high speed access, whereas before the DBS was doing its thing, bandwidth was completely consumed by a handful of people and the experience was lousy for everyone ... The majority wins, the ISP makes money and the handful of bandwidth hogs are dealt with.
