1. A Perpetual Software License
Thunderstone search solutions always include a perpetual license to the software. You will never be asked to pay annual license fees or suddenly discover you are just leasing the product you thought you owned.
2. Search Solutions that Grow with You
Thunderstone search solutions deliver excellent scalability, to grow and evolve as your search needs do the same.
3. Penalty-Free Upgrades
For current maintenance customers, your existing investment counts toward the cost of upgrading to a more advanced solution or increasing the capacity of an existing solution. The investment for an upgraded solution is the difference between the cost of the upgraded solution and the hardware and software license fees and equipment costs already paid. Maintenance payments going forward will be based on the upgraded solution.
This Investment Protection Program applies whether you are increasing the capacity of your solution, or upgrading to a more advanced solution. For example, if you wanted to add additional support for facets and custom queries you could upgrade from the Search Appliance to a Parametric Appliance, and your total investment will be no more than if you started with the Parametric Appliance.
