|Per additional 100GB
To back up SIMS data an additional £50 p.a. SIMS plug-in is required. Alternatively to avoid this charge an example script file for use with SIMS is available for users who are confident to implement this independently. For full details see the Technical info / Support tab.
All GridStore service pricing is excluding VAT and per annum. A 3 year minimum term applies, with service renewal invoices generated automatically for years 2 and 3.
Note: Calculate the total amount of storage required for all devices you are backing up and choose the relevant amount of storage from the pricing structure above. If purchasing more than 500GB, or if you are an existing GridStore customer requiring more storage, order additional storage in blocks of 100GB at £150.
For example a total of 900GB storage should be ordered in this way:
1 x 500GB £900
4 x additional 100GB £600
