PITTSBORO, NC – 1 April 2008
Today OpenNMS is proud to announce the availability of “OpenNMS: Enterprise Edition®”.
“The definition of ‘open source’ applications is changing,” states Tarus Balog, Chief Executive Office of the OpenNMS Group, “and OpenNMS must change with it. Some customers today are not satisfied with the open and totally free version of OpenNMS, and so we have had to adapt. The general industry consensus is that without a strong commercial presence, it is not possible for an open source project to deliver quality code on time. We want to make sure that OpenNMS can meet the demands of all potential clients, and not just those who want the best possible value for their management investment. Yeah, we’re talking about boatloads of money here.”
The main, and in fact only, difference between the plain old, reliable and free OpenNMS and OpenNMS: Enterprise Edition® is the logo.
That, and the price. As with other vendors the actual cost of OpenNMS: Enterprise Edition® will be highly subjective and obsfucated. The following calculator has been created for clients to estimate the cost of an OpenNMS: Enterprise Edition® deployment.
