Pricing that's simple

Zing® is priced on a subscription basis per server. With per-server pricing, you don’t need to worry about core counts, memory size, or number of instances deployed per server. The annualized subscription price for Zing per physical server ranges from $8000 (for a single license) to under $2000 (for orders above 1000 servers). Higher volumes and longer subscription terms will reduce the per-server price for Zing. Pricing for virtual servers is also available upon request.

Your Azul sales representative will provide pricing that matches your specific requirements and help you maximize the value of your Zing investment.
