The complexity and hidden charges of many popular cloud-based storage services have become a problem for customers to decipher and understand. In the area of cloud backup and recovery, the capacity license model, in which users pay for how much data they protect, is less appealing as data volumes grow and costs keep going up. This makes it hard to predict the price that customers are actually signing up for when selecting a cloud backup service, which makes budgeting difficult.

In this webinar, Asigra and a panel of experts will discuss the challenges of existing cloud data backup and recovery pricing models and how software licensing is evolving to address the rising tide of data and the causes of data loss. As examples of success in other industries, paradigm shifts in the automotive insurance market with respect to pricing will be examined to show how value-based pricing models better align with customer expectations.

Key topics to be addressed on this webinar include:
- Dominant models in cloud backup and recovery pricing today
- Limitations of traditional pricing models (with examples)
- Industries that have innovated around pricing to improve customer retention? (Auto insurance industry and others)
- Lessons learned from early pricing model innovators, including failures and successes
- Potential challenges with new pricing schemes
- The economics of cloud storage over the next 3-5 years

“As research has shown1, there is a propensity for organizations to consider pricing models that offer business and technical advantages in response to conditions impacting operations, such as data growth,” said Tracy Staniland, VP, Corporate Marketing, Asigra. “Asigra’s recovery-based approach to licensing will be highlighted in this webinar and presented as an alternative to agent- and capacity-based pricing. This new direction on licensing decouples backup pricing from data volumes to more efficiently manage the process at a lower cost and to provide more cost predictability.”
