objectiF RM as Software as a Service
Software as a Service can be used on a monthly basis. Read handling and prices.
Getting started with objectiF RM in less than 1 hour. All you need is renting a defined software and hardware infrastructure at Amazon Web Services, as well as monthly objectiF RM licences. microTOOL will provide an Amazon Machine Image that produces an Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2). And you are good to go.
The required infrastructure at Amazon Web Services
To run objectiF RM in the cloud as Software as a Service you need an Amazon Web Services Account. This account enables you to rent an infrastructure with software and hardware. There are two alternatives to use objectiF RM:
- An infrastructure with a MS Windows Server 2012 RTM and a MS SQL Server Express 2014.
- An infrastructure with a MS Windows Server 2012 R2 RTM and a MS SQL Server Standard 2014.
Amazon Web Services offers the usage of the Microsoft licenses on a monthly basis. For hardware we recommend you to use the so-calle “m4.large” with 2 virtual CPS and 8 GB Memory for both alternatives. The MS SQL Server Express 2014 is limited to 1 GB Memory and 10 GB data volume, so if you need more we recommend the MS SQL Server Standard 2014.
microTOOL will provide an Amazon Machine Image, which produces an Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), as well as objectiF RM licenses for montly rent.
The prices for EC2 vary. You can find the prices for a package with a MS Windows Server 2012 RTM and a MS SQL Server Express 2014 in Frankfurt/Germany here. You can find the prices for a package with a MS Windows Server R2 RTM and a MS SQL Standard Server 2014 in Frankfurt/Germany here.

How does rental work? You decide on the number of licenses based on the number of users who will simultaneously work on the system. Then you rent the number of concurrent user licenses for a month. The rental period begins the moment you receive the license key. The rent will automatically be extended by a month if you do not cancel within 3 days of the end of the rental month. You can cancel simply by sending an email to email@example.com or a fax to +49 (30) 46447 14. The agreement with Amazon must be terminated separately.
The license rental fee includes hotline support and an update service. Updates are made available to your designated administrator as .MSI or .MSP files.
