Do not apply "per core" pricing

VHC Ltd shared this idea 40 days ago
Under Consideration

As one of most famous web server manager has done recently, please don't follow this bad example. This kind of pricing model is killing our business, and yours... Your other product, Plesk didn't applied this stupid pricing model.

Please keep SolusVM pricing model.

While I understand the need per core pricing model, the current price is not affordable.

i couldnt agree more .... the pricing model may make sense in the short term but in the long run your clients will look for alternative i know we are.

I don't think the model is bad just the current cost per core. A lot of vendors use per core models. Five euros a core is the steep part figuring my hosts are 32 core hosts that would mean 160 euros compared to $10 a slave is a large jump at 1 euro a core that would still be a 3x jump in revenue but imo would be much more tolerable as that would only take 1 vps per core pay an extra euro to recoup the management cost. I would say the better route would be a base host plus vm cost as it would allow for more revenue generation for everyone and scale based off client size.

Yes, the current pricing model is not really good. We've been using SolusVM since 2014 and have already dissolved around 10 nodes (switched to Proxmox), as SolusVM v1 will surely be discontinued at some point and we won't switch to Solus.io at this price.

We have a lot of cases where individual nodes need to be temporarily replaced (e.g. hardware defects or strange behavior), so we take a server that is free, install SolusVM on it and live migrate the servers to the new server.

It would be very inconvenient if we now also need to look which server we are installing temporarily so that it doesn't get too expensive. We also have servers with many cores.

The price model will certainly not change much. If you are currently using SolusVM and don't agree with the new pricing model, you should look for alternatives, even if SolusVM is supposed to remain in place, according to Plesk.

yeah the per core price is too costly... most solusVM providers will find it hard to justify moving to solus.io, since standard E3 CPU server with 4 cores -> 20 euro -> $40/m AUD when currently its $10 usd and the way the current economy is with most currencies falling for the budget provider will be a deal breaker unless you give hosting providers discounts who have multiple lic/cores

Yes, this is so stupid. Some customers who use Solusvm do not have much funds (as far as I ask friends who use Solusvm around me to understand), if the software license fee is calculated according to the hardware configuration, then many customers will be lost Part of the advantage of Solusvm before is the corresponding functional stability and price. If the software license fee is calculated according to the hardware configuration, many customers will not be able to afford such a price and then switch to other similar software. If this continues, the SolusIO customer base will gradually turn into large commercial customers, and the original Solusvm customer conversion rate will become very low. Maybe SolusIO hopes so, But the reality is that many large commercial customers will develop their own cloud platforms similar to SolusIO in order to ensure code and technology controllability, then the development of SolusIO is bound to be greatly affected, So calculating software license fees based on hardware configuration is a very stupid decision!
