What about Cost?

While some DBMS vendors focus solely on the license costs, Altibase believes in an all-encompassing strategy to bring total costs down while simultaneously improving the performance and stability of your system.

When it comes to cost, calculating the mere cost of the license is never enough. Databases are a core component of any solution stack and, therefore, a significant number of factors must be taken into account such as:

  • License Cost
  • Support and Maintenance Fees
  • Hardware Costs
  • Implementation Costs
  • DBA Costs

While some DBMS vendors focus solely on the license costs, Altibase believes in an all-encompassing strategy to bring total costs down while simultaneously improving the performance and stability of your system.

Here is how:

  • License Cost
    • Altibase’s up-front licensing costs for perpetual licenses are cheaper than all mainstream DBMS providers.
  • Support and Maintenance Fees
    • Annual maintenance fees are lower than our competitors.
    • Annual maintenance fees are based on the actual sale price of the licenses, whereas many competitors base maintenance fees on the list price.
    • Annual maintenance fees are completely optional.
  • Hardware Costs
    • Altibase outperforms disk resident databases on identical hardware, potentially mitigating the need to upgrade server infrastructure.
    • Altibase has less CPU utilization than most legacy databases, freeing up additional resources for “useful” work.
  • Implementation Costs
    • Altibase is relational and SQL-compliant, greatly simplifying migrations.
    • In some cases, migration is as simple as swapping out a JDBC connection string.
    • Altibase provides Migration Center, a free utility that can automatically migrate schemas, data, and stored procedures from legacy databases to Altibase.
  • DBA Costs
    • Altibase’s SQL compliance makes it simple to learn for avid users of Oracle or SQL Server.
    • Configuration and installation is straightforward and simple, greatly reducing the complexity and cost of management.
    • No need to hire new DBA resources to handle completely different database paradigms.

Through these multiple avenues, Altibase has a demonstrated history of saving companies hundreds of thousands of dollars in database related costs, while simultaneously improving stability and performance. Because of the dramatic reductions in TCO that Altibase offers, many of our customers often choose to migrate additional systems over to Altibase.

CONCLUSION

  • Altibase license fees are lower than most enterprise grade competitors.
  • Altibase has an “all-inclusive” licensing model that completely eliminates costly “options” or “add-ons.”
  • Altibase’s all-inclusive licensing model eliminates the need for stressful “audits” that can tack on millions of dollars in unanticipated fees.
  • Altibase’s maintenance and support agreements are entirely optional.
  • Altibase can reduce server hardware costs by accelerating performance on existing hardware.
  • Altibase’s implementation costs are lower through compatibility with industry standard programming languages, drivers, and interfaces.
