Virtualised Server Pricing
Our Production Support subscriptions are priced per server (per PostgreSQL instance), which particularly benefits client using multi-core and multiple servers. However, we recognise that some environments may consist of many virtualised servers, which could make pricing per server potentially expensive. We have a solution to this but as each client's needs can vary substantially, we will consider a number of factors to provide a highly competitive price. Please request a quote and we'll be in touch to understand your specific needs.
Why Choose 2ndQuadrant for PostgreSQL Support?
With proprietary software, support often isn't optional, so you get a low quality service because there is no possibility of avoiding the cost or choosing alternative suppliers. "Support" should mean if you are really stuck you have someone to call. However, many proprietary software customers experience something quite different, with responses like "Yeah, its a bug. We already know".
2ndQuadrant provides 24/7 software support where we actually fix bugs, not just tell you about them and what the workaround is. Support is optional, so are team are committed to giving our customers a quality service. We make sure we're there when you need us and that we have the skills to solve your problems.
Our support function is staffed by PostgreSQL developers and contributors. When you call us a noted PostgreSQL expert/developer/contributor will actually respond, personally. And if they can't help, we'll mobilise more people until we can. We don't have Level 1 staff as call handlers, we don't operate from call centres in developing countries to keep costs low and we don't rely on Google search for our expertise!
We are a growing business with a worldwide presence so whenever you call us you'll get someone working their day shift. There are many of us, so nobody needs to work nights or public holidays to make this work. No jumping out of bed. Awake, trained and motivated people to help you when you're in trouble, backed by a larger team with broad experience and precise technical knowledge.
2ndQuadrant isn't a venture capital driven business. Why should that matter? Well we think it makes a big difference because we don't have huge loans to repay and aggressive sales targets. We're developers and technical experts, who use the funding from support to add even more value to PostgreSQL. So our support is reasonably priced and aims to covers the costs of being available to solve your problems.
*Platinum Production Support is currently available in English language only. Our Gold service is available in English and Spanish, using native or fluent speakers.
