- Free updates
- Complete scalable solution for hosting
The hosting plan in this table is our shared basic plan. If you grow out of this
basic plan and need more computing resources, no problem, we can upgrade you to
a higher plan within hours and with minimal disruption to your business operations.
See below for more information about our hosting plans.

Additional hosting plan information:
- For the shared hosting plan you are sharing the server with up to 3 other customers.

- Amazon Compute Unit = 1 EC2 Compute Unit and is equivalent to a CPU capacity of
1.2 GHz 2007 Opteron or 2007 Xeon processor
- * One of the big advantages to run a dedicated server is that you have control over
the firewall so you can lock down the server access to a specific list of IP addresses
(this is not possible on the shared server plans).
Amazon has extensive security measures in place to protect your data. To learn about
the measures check out the 'Overview of Security Processes' brochure of Amazon.
Using the Amazon Firewall Features we can lock down the system by only allowing
specific IP addresses to access the system. Using this security feature we can make
sure that all your applications are protected and can only be accessed by you.
Option 2: To have EZ-MES on your own internal server
It is no problem for us to install the application on your own internal server,
as we have done this for numerous customers. One condition is that you must give
us remote terminal access for the period required to install and update the application.

and required software lisences to run EZ-MES.
We do not offer a lease option when the software is installed on your own internal
server. In that case you have to purchase the perpetual license for $30,000.
If you want to have control over your own backups, and would like to have an SSL
connection, then we offer the following 2 additional features:
FTP Access for Backups
In the case where you would like to create backups from the daily backup files we
generate, we can install FTP Server Software on you server instance, this will give
you FTP access to the Daily Backup files. This FTP service can be restricted to
just a single IP address and will have user name and password authentication. Set-up
and licensing fees are $400 a year for FTP Access.
The system is hosted, so all you will require are computers that have an Internet
connection. EZ-MES works exactly the same on Microsoft Windows, Apple Macs and Linux
PC's and supports all web browsers:
- Internet Explorer 6.0 and up
- FireFox 2.0 and up
- Google Chrome
No plug in, downloads or special fonts are required. It will run without problems
It can be hard to make a decision on which product to purchase. We can help you
to make this decision by evaluating your specific situation and your own unique
requirements. The deliverable for this will be an evaluation document.
- This document will provide you with the criteria to judge not just us but any vendor
- You will be better equipped to make a decision
- If you decide to purchase our product, the paid fee for the Discovery Contract will
be discounted form your purchase price
We hate to break it to you, but we don't like to do a lot of work for free,
so the price we charge for this evaluation document is $2,500 (This will be discounted
in the case where you purchase EZ-MES).
