Fair Billing and Pay As You Go

Price Model and Purchasing Credit

iconik uses a subscription-based pricing model. The price metrics are based on number of active users, consumables and the iconik Storage Gateway for hybrid cloud workflows.

The active user model reflects actual usage of the service on a monthly basis. It allows the registration of a virtually unlimited number of users, whilst only charging for users with any activity in the system during a calendar month. This includes login, search, asset view, playback, etc.

Customers are invoiced in advance to purchase credit on their account. This credit will then be consumed through any combination of the price metrics outlined, such as users or possible consumables. There is no time limit to use up credit and we will notify you in good time when the credit needs to be topped up.

User Types

iconik is designed for both media centric and non-media centric users. This includes users that work with media on regular basis, employees that are only occasionally involved in the media processes, or users that simply want to discover new corporate media. To address this, iconik provides different types of users.

  • Power Users: Users with system administration privileges.
  • Standard Users: Users with full access to all available functionality in the system, excluding system administration.
  • Browse-only Users: Users who are restricted to read-only and download access, as well as being able to participate in review and approve workflows, including commenting on assets and approving or rejecting.
  • Non-paid Users: Users with no user accounts can still access assets that are shared with them with a unique URL or through the process of review & approve. Non-paid users are free of charge.

Consumables

iconik provides a consumption based model for the various different options available in the system.

For media storage, we apply Bring Your Own Storage model, so using the iconik cloud storage for your original assets is optional. You can plug in your own bucket (e.g. AWS S3, Google Cloud Storage, or Backblaze B2) and pay the storage provider directly for capacity and bandwidth. For performance reasons however we require the proxies and keyframes to be stored on iconik cloud storages. The costs for these are however light in the bigger scheme.

For AI services, we are working on allowing Bring Your Own License so the consumption costs can be with the AI provider directly. Currently however these services are provided through iconik.

Consumables are defined as follows:

  • Cloud storage capacity.
  • Outbound traffic (egress), such as downloads and exports.
  • Video AI analytics.
  • Image AI analytics.

Forecasting a Consumption based Model

We understand that forecasting for a consumption based models can sometimes be a challenge, especially when the exact usage cannot be determined beforehand. Therefore, we have developed a set of tools that will help customers control the usage and costs over time, and to meet budgets.

We have put together common usage scenarios and the costs associated to each. These will help you determine in advance how much you are likely to need for your expected needs in a certain period of time. In addition to this we are also working on various tools that help you control the usage and the costs.

Monitoring Usage and Stats

Full analytics and reporting on usage and consumption is available to give you an overview of your consumption, which in turn drives the costs. The overview includes an overview of active users and and user types, transcoding, traffic, and storage.

Alerts (upcoming)

You will be able to create billing alerts that notify the right people when the usage of the services exceeds specified thresholds. The notification will also include a forecast on how many days the credit will last based on current rate, and when it needs topping up.

Limiting Utilization

In order to control costs, we enable customers to limit usage in the following ways:

  • Admins are able to disable certain services for specific groups.
  • Set cap usage for consumables. (upcoming)
  • Set cap on active users. (upcoming)

iconik Enterprise

The Enterprise version is single tenant, meaning you can have your own instance of the software to be wholly customised for your needs.

It uses Bring Your Own Cloud (BYOC), which means you can select your own cloud provider or continue to use an existing one. Consumables will be agreed and charged directly with your cloud provider.
