License and pricing

Transparent Licensing & Pricing Information

The folks here at QuerySurge have a reputation for doing things differently than the status quo. Therefore, unlike traditional enterprise software vendors (or any of our competitors), we try to make everything as transparent as possible. And that is why we post our pricing – so there are no surprises.

Click on the categories below to expand or hide the information.

  • Licensing Models: Perpetual vs. Subscription

    Subscription – Use QuerySurge for a 12-month term with options to renew. Support, bug fixes & upgrades are included.

    Perpetual – Own QuerySurge. Annual maintenance plan includes support, bug fixes & upgrades.

    What's best for me?

    The Subscription model is designed for companies that plan to use QuerySurge for a shorter time (1 to 3 years) or plan to use their OPEX (operational expenditure) budget.

    Perpetual ownership is more cost-effective for teams or projects that will require long-term, continuous usage (3+ years) or plan to use their CAPEX (capital expenditure) budget.

  • License Types: Named User vs. Floating User

    Named User licenses

    The Named User license type allows a limited number of users to be entered into QuerySurge, based on the amount listed on the license. Named User licenses allow for access to the license for each specific, named user.

    Benefits: Full usage of QuerySurge and less expensive per user than floating users

    Drawback: Each user license is assigned to a specific name, limiting usage and traceability

    Named users 5 pack

    Floating User licenses

    The Floating User license type allows unlimited users to be entered into QuerySurge, with the concurrent usage limited to the number of floating seats purchased.

    Benefits: The flexibility to provide access to many more users, especially if your team is geographically distributed. Each user has their own unique ID and password and there is traceability of every user for productivity and usage.

    Drawback: More expensive than Named Users.

  • QuerySurge Installation Choice: On-Premises vs. In-The-Cloud

    On-premises – You install QuerySurge on your servers or VMs behind your firewall

    In-The-Cloud – QuerySurge is available in the Microsoft Azure cloud. Also, feel free to install in AWS, Google, IBM, Oracle or any other cloud of your choice.

    The choice is completely up to you. Our team can assist you with whichever way you choose to go.

  • User Access: Full User & Participant User descriptions

    Full User – Unlimited access to create, schedule & run tests, view results, run & export reports, send & receive email notifications, export data

    Participant User – Cannot create or run tests, but can view all other information including viewing all query pairs, results, reports, receiving email notifications, exporting test results and reports.
