Gluu slashes prices on Cloud Identity Server for Educational Institutions
Austin, TX — Gluu Inc. today released a discounted pricing schedule that offers user identity management in the cloud to educational institutions at one low annual cost. With the new, lower pricing, the Gluu EDU Server is now available for $350 per month with no setup fees, and the Gluu EDU Appliance is available for $100 per month with a $1,200 setup fee.
The Gluu EDU Server leverages the Rackspace Cloud to offer instant cloud identity, while the Gluu EDU Appliance makes use of the clients private VM to offer a layer of cloud identity security inside the institutions firewall. Both solutions provide secure and scalable user identity management to educational institutions at a fraction of the cost of other leading cloud identity providers.
While nearly all other companies charge on a per user basis, Gluu recognized a flat pricing model would be the only way to ensure cloud identity security for educational institutions with thousands of users and minimal budgets. Gluu currently provides user identity management to 10 higher education institutions and looks to cement its position as the leading provider of cloud identity to educational institutions.
“Gluu has been fortunate enough to provide cloud identity to some of the most prestigious colleges and universities in the country,” said Gluu CEO Michael Schwartz. “These pricing discounts reflect Gluu’s ongoing commitment to education and our gratitude to higher ed for being early adopters of the Gluu cloud identity solution.”
