What will IBM Verse cost?

by Volker Weber

Please help me out here. My understanding is that Verse will cost the same as SmartCloud Notes or Connections. But even there pricing isn't entirely clear to me. Can you enlighten me?

I'm not sure because I hadn't see any offical price sheet yet. But what I hear is that Verse will be freemium. So the price will depend on what you want to use, but have the chance to use it for free.

That's ofcourse only vaild for the cloud service, not for the on-premise version.

What I have seen in a few seconds in Zürich:
Free:
500 MB for files
Domain: @ibmverse.com (Eeeeeeeeks)

Pay:
Some TB number.
Your Domain

No exact pricing available.

Check the current pricing of IBM Connections Cloud S1. That covers all features Verse is build on top of. That will be the price for new customers. It will include all the other social features.

IBM needs something like Google has:

500 MB Files, Christian? How cute. What do you get from Google or Msft for free? 15 GB. Plus bonusses.

This information may be out of date by now, but last I heard for at least the US was that SmartCloud for Notes was $4/month, and Verse would be $5/month. That was from IBM at the most recent ATLUG meeting, with the usual caveats of "subject to change" etc.

Isn't it, is it. And with that IBM wants to get 500'000'000 cloud users. Yep, my jaw dropped, too. Ok, that is what was said a week ago in Zürich ... subject to change.
(I mentioned this in my blog on monday, but would anybody care? Sniff)

500 million Verse users? That almost every second WhatsApp user. Right.

"IBM plans to make Verse available starting at $5US per user per month."

Jeff has indicated a number of throttles in FREEmium. Number of messages etc. It looks like those may be the throttles:

Send up to 25 emails in a 24 hour period.
Send mail containing up to 10 recipients per email.
Send mail messages up to 100MB in size.
Have a mailbox quota of 500 MB.
