How does pricing work? 2018-02-03T14:33:03+00:00

Pricing depends on the hosting option as well as usage patterns and assigned resource quotas. Novunex was built for the cloud with on-premise options in mind. Most of our customers have stable land line connections and leverage our flexible cloud hosting options, but in some situations a stable land line cannot be guaranteed or production environments producing high volume of goods may require a local fail-over solution. Novunex has a broad set of hybrid as well as on-premise only solutions. Drop us a line and we will jointly find a best-fit-solution for your specific business case.
