News: Redshift Moving to Subscription-Only August 30
Starting August 30, 2021, Redshift will only be available as a subscription-only product. Below, read everything you need to know about how to connect to MyMaxon, the costs, and more.
Maxon explains the reason for moving Redshift to subscription-only. “Cutting-edge technology and performance require agile development and delivery. Redshift’s functionality is fully dependent upon third-party hardware and software solutions. In order to maintain compatibility with the latest hardware, drivers and host application updates our Redshift development team is constantly updating, optimizing, and ensuring stability. In order to provide the best customer experience, we believe all customers should be running on the latest version.”
What you need to know about Redshift moving to subscription-only
On August 30th all Redshift accounts will be transitioned to a MyMaxon account. This adds you to the Maxon ecosystem connecting you to licensing, resources, and invoicing for all your products. Licenses purchased after August 30th will be entitled through MyMaxon. Existing perpetual licenses and maintenance will still be entitled to the existing activation system.
- No Additional Cost. Pricing for subscription will be comparable to the current Annual Maintenance cost.
- Lower Initial Cost. New customers and existing customers who want to expand their license counts will enjoy new startup subscription pricing.
- Flexibility. Both monthly and annual subscription terms will be available.
Annual Maintenance Agreements
With the introduction of the subscription, the ability to purchase Annual Maintenance Agreements will be discontinued. Existing contracts will, of course, be serviced and are renewable up to August 31, 2023, with a maximum expiration of August 31, 2024.
What you need to do
Your MyMaxon Account: The email you use to log into Redshift will be transferred to the MyMaxon system. Once the transfer is complete, you will receive information on how to log into your new MyMaxon account for the first time. If you already have a MyMaxon and a Redshift login, make sure you update your Redshift account so that it is using the same email as your MyMaxon account.
