Sitecore can be purchased and deployed on-premises with a perpetual license or in the cloud with a consumption license.
Choose the deployment option that works for you.
The key to choosing a pricing and deployment option is understanding your organisation’s requirements and constraints.
Sitecore is priced by the number of software installations in your environment, on a perpetual license basis. This is ideal for customers who budget for software as a capital investment or up-front expense. The following products can be purchased as perpetually licensed software:
Sitecore® Experience Platform™ (which includes Sitecore® Experience Database™)
Sitecore® Web Experience Manager
Sitecore® Email Experience Manager
Sitecore® Commerce Server stand-alone
Sitecore® Print Experience Manager
Sitecore is priced on a variable basis according to the volume of visits to your Sitecore-powered site. This is ideal for customers who have their own private cloud environment, budget for software as an annual expense or have a volatile traffic pattern. The following products can be purchased under a subscription model:
Sitecore® Experience Platform™ (which includes Sitecore® Experience Database™ or xDB)
Sitecore Cloud Services (xDB hosting as a subscription)
There are various levels of support for Sitecore, and each is available with perpetual or consumption-based licenses. Perpetual license support fees are paid annually as a percentage of total license price, and consumption license support fees are added to the monthly license fee.
