After nearly 10 months running in “Preview”, I am pleased to announce that Cloud Portam is now Live. This blog post talks about pricing and other details now that Cloud Portam is commercially available.

Pricing

Cloud Portam will be offered to you as a subscription based service. You could subscribe to this service either on a month-to-month basis or on a yearly basis. As you may already know Cloud Portam is offered to you in two editions – Personal & Team. For both editions, you will be able to subscribe for either a monthly plan or an yearly plan. Pricing for Personal Edition starts at $10.00 / month ($100.00 / year) while the pricing for Team Edition starts at $100.00 / month ($1000.00 / year) for a 5 User Pack. For Team Edition, we offer different user packs (5, 10, 15, 20, 30, 50, 100) and based on the pack you subscribe for limits the member in your team. For more details on pricing, please visit our website @ https://www.cloudportam.com/pricing.

You can only purchase a subscription from within Cloud Portam application. We have chosen FastSpring as our payment processor. You provide the payment information on their website and we never see your payment information at any point of time.

We know first hand that doing community work is hard and as a token of our appreciation for Azure community rock stars, we are offering a complimentary subscription of Personal Edition of Cloud Portam to them. If you’re a Microsoft Regional Director, Microsoft MVP or Azure Insider, you’re a community rock star in our books. But we don’t stop there!

What’s Next?

Now that we have released Cloud Portam, does that mean we’re done working on the application? Well, far from it. We have so many things in our pipeline and now that this release is behind us, we will be working on that. Azure is constantly evolving and so we will be. We will switch back to weekly/fortnightly releases and you will see many new features introduced in the application which we hope will make you more productive when it comes to managing your Azure resources. So stay tuned!
