NetBrain Hits Customer Milestone and Introduces Simpler Software Licensing

Oct 28, 2021

Now with more than 2500 customers worldwide, NetBrain introduces more flexible subscription-based licensing model

BURLINGTON, Mass. – October 28, 2021 NetBrain Technologies Inc, the leading provider of visibility and automation solutions for network operations, has reached a customer milestone, now servicing the management needs of more than 2500 customers worldwide with its fourth-generation Release 10 solution. Additionally, NetBrain is introducing a simpler subscription-based licensing model to allow customers maximum flexibility and easier deployment as they grow and evolve their digital infrastructures.

NetBrain has been supplying its patented network visibility and automation platform for more than 15 years and continues to provide the industry’s most adopted solution for hybrid network operations management. As customers grown in scale and network complexity, they increasingly deploy new business IT services in public clouds and leverage mature software-defined data center and WAN technologies. NetBrain continues to grow with these customers and R10 raises the bar by enabling the automation of problem diagnosis across their entire hybrid end-to-end network, from datacenter to public cloud.

“With 2500 customers including one third of both the Fortune 100 and Fortune 500, we are confident that we have a deep understanding of their changing IT alignments with the business organizations they serve. Over the past several years, our customers have started telling us that they would prefer to purchase software through a subscription model to help them manage their spending more closely aligned with their organizational needs. They’d also like to reduce upfront expenses and increase license usage flexibility over time”, says Lingping Gao, Chief Executive Officer of NetBrain, “As a result, beginning on January 1 2022 NetBrain will retire our perpetual licensing model and be offering NetBrain’s network automation platform by subscription only. In addition, we will offer existing perpetual licensed customers the ability to convert their perpetual licenses to the more flexible subscription-based licensing model at no cost.”

Existing customers who have purchased a perpetual license prior to December 31, 2021 may continue to own and utilize their existing perpetual licenses, and their maintenance and support benefits will continue to exist for as long as they renew maintenance contracts. However, beginning January 1, 2022, NetBrain will no longer offer perpetual licenses and any new license purchases will require conversion of the entire topology to the subscription model- an easy process with significant new capabilities, including support for the cloud and universal device licensing. Consequently, NetBrain recommends the conversion to our subscription-based fourth generation offering as it simplifies fiscal management and offers the fullest support for new capabilities that may be introduced only in our subscription platform over time. Upon request, NetBrain will convert any customer with existing perpetual licenses to subscription licenses at the same level of their current maintenance costs, allowing for access to subscription benefits across their entire NetBrain footprint.

NetBrain Release 10 is now generally available. NetBrain customers can request upgrades by emailing contacting their Account Executive or by emailing NetBrain’s services team directly at [email protected].
