- Upbound is now available in three tiers giving customers more options around hosting and management
- Customers can get Upbound via our managed SaaS offering, Upbound Cloud, and now as a single tenant self-hosted, self-managed offering called Upbound Enterprise
- Admin and control plane licenses can be consumed and transferred across both offerings
Today we’re excited to announce some updates on how we deliver Upbound to our customers, including a fully self-hosted version of Upbound called Upbound Enterprise and new subscription tiers. Now, Upbound customers have more flexibility and choices around hosting, management, and features than ever before.
Self Hosted, Self Managed Upbound
Since Upbound became Generally Available in May, we’ve been busy helping customers deploy Crossplane into production at scale. It’s truly been humbling to see how customers are adopting the project and partnering with Upbound to standardize on a Universal Cloud Platform for their teams. Using our products, we’ve seen customers modernize applications which are now able to be deployed on multiple cloud providers, legacy IaC environments, and enable their developers to safely self-service infrastructure -- all through a control plane.
Over the past few months, a top request from customers has been the ability to host and run our management console and registry inside of their environment. Many of our customers include some of the world’s largest organizations who rely on Crossplane to manage mission critical infrastructure and enable self-service from their application teams. For these customers, security and latency are top criteria when evaluating the vendors they partner with on new initiatives.
Upbound Enterprise is the exact same software running as part of our SaaS offering, Upbound Cloud, but it’s available to install and host in customer’s environments. Today this just includes our management console, but we will be shipping a private version of Upbound Registry in Upbound Enterprise soon as well.
With the launch of Upbound Enterprise, we’re updating the plans available to customers. Upbound’s Free tier remains the same great option for community members looking to host side projects and debug the Providers and Compositions they build using the Upbound management console. But we’re also introducing two new tiers - Business and Enterprise.
Each paid tier is designed for community members on the free tier who want to onboard their entire team to Upbound. The two plans are almost identical today, with just one difference. Our Enterprise plan customers are entitled to consume their control plane and admin licenses via both Upbound Cloud and Upbound Enterprise while our Business tier customers just have Upbound Cloud available to them.
