Build & operate

Our flagship subscription service includes building your Gluu Servers and maintaining root access to provide ongoing operational assistance.

Perfect for organizations that can't provide shared access to the servers but still want Gluu to build and configure the server(s) and an annual support contract.

A la carte

Get started for free with the Gluu Server CE, which includes endpoints for OpenID Connect & UMA. Use community support or purchase VIP support as needed.

Why Gluu?

We were tired of the status quo.

Before starting Gluu we were IAM integrators. We worked with all the leading enterprise platforms. Our experiences lead us to a lightbulb moment: standardized delivery of open source software and cost effective support could eliminate the need for high priced enterprise software. The market was in need of a horizontally scalable, highly flexible and modern, open source access management platform.


Flexibility first.

Most organizations have unique requirements for access management. Using custom authentication and authorization scripts that are inserted into the Gluu web console and compiled at run time, the Gluu Server can enforce business-driven policy and utilize external services or call security APIs.


No per user, per integration or license fees. Ever.

We don't sell software and licenses. We provide operational support. The Gluu Server is and always will be free to use in production. By eliminating per user, per application and licensing fees, your organization is never subject to predatory pricing, vendor lock-in or application and user limits.
