Ellipsis Drive works with a simple storage-based pricing model. This means that you only pay for the amount of data that you host in your Ellipsis account. You can scale your data storage up or down easily and at any time depending on your business needs.
If, for compliance reasons, your organization is not able to use Ellipsis Drive in the public cloud, we offer the possibility of private instances. There are two options for this:
1. A private instance hosted and maintained by Ellipsis Drive in a geographic location of your choosing.
2. A private instance hosted and maintained by your organization, with Ellipsis Drive as support.
Both of these options are under license. Yearly cost depends on your storage volume.
In this case a new instance of Ellipsis Drive will be set up under it's own network in a geographic location (or locations) of your choosing. The instance will be configured so that only your organization - via your own network - can reach the instance. This adds an important layer of security and makes sure that you are complient with regulations requiring you to store data within certain borders.
In this case you would be the tennant of a solution maintained by Ellipsis Drive, secure and private for only your organization.
In case security requirements are more stringent, you can choose to host Ellipsis Drive yourself on your own Infrastructure. In case you are on AWS, Google Cloud Platfrom or Microsoft Azure you can set this up relatively easily, but in principle Ellipsis Drive can be set up in any cloud enviroment supporting docker containers. See our Installation guide for an overview of the basic architecture.
Our team's help and support is always included in the license fee, but keep in mind that Ellipsis staff cannot directly access your infrasturcture unless provided with permission by your own staff.
