Navigating billing can sometimes be a challenge, but with Lightsafe, we aim for clarity and transparency. Let's dive into how Lightsafe's billing works through a practical example.
Licensing: Absolutely no costs; all our software is free
Backup: First 50TB charged at $0.0055/GB/month; beyond 50TB, it's just $0.005/GB/month
Restore: A flat rate of $0.01/GB
Optional Local Backup: A nominal $10/machine/month
Consider a customer backing up a little over 80TB of data across 25 servers. They've opted for Local Backup on one machine and restored approximately 726GB of data during the month. Here's how the billing would look:
|Subscription / Service||Quantity||Unit Rate||Amount|
|Cloud Backup Tier 1 - First 50TB||50,000 GB||$ 0.0055/GB||$ 275.00|
|Cloud Backup Tier 2 - Beyond 50TB||30,516 GB||$ 0.005/GB||$ 152.58|
|Local Backup (Optional)||1 Machine||$ 10/Machine||$ 10.00|
|Cloud Restore||726 GB||$ 0.01/GB||$ 7.26|
Your commitment to us is flexible. Charges are applicable for any portion of a calendar month. If you choose to cancel, you're provided a grace period, after which data will be removed from the cloud.
