TeamServer pricing?

Hi there,

Do you have an estimate of what the cost of TeamServer is going to be when
releases?
just to have a rough idea, so that I can start selling the idea to my company...

thanks!

Well, it is a big-big secret but most probably (not finally decided
yet), if you buy v 6.0 or upgrade for v 6.0 you will have free license
for TeamServer

BTW, how much are you ready to pay? Seriously, what price you feel

Well, I have been using Cruise Control and AntHill (free version) for several
projects lately, and they seem to do the job ok.
I am pretty sure there are other alternatives that are also working on having
features similar to TeamServer, specially using some AJAX to enhance the
UI.

So any other tool that costs needs to offer substantially greater benefits,
and usually the build process is something that is still relegated to second
or third priority when setting up development environments.

The idea of bundling TeamServer for free with IDEA 6 seems brilliant to me.
This will allow for a very easy sell to all of us who are hard-core IDEA
users. So we can get our teams to keep using IDEA instead of moving to Eclipse
and we gain a really good build tool.

Trying to sell it as a stand-alone product is also a good idea, but I think
that setting a ver low price point to be key for getting the product out
in the hands of as many developers as possible.

Something in the $499 range makes it a very simple sell for medium to large
organizations. I have never used a commercial build system, so cannot compare
to the cost of those vs. the ROI. The open source solutions that I have used
have met the requirements. But I can certainly see TeamServer as a good replacement
to the open source solutions I have used, if the price is right... the IDE
option I think is the best.

Thanks,

Hello AlexTkachman(JetBrains),

I assume it has been decided to bundle TeamCity for free with
IDEA 6.0 and future versions...

I am curious what this means, exactly.

According to this:

http://www.jetbrains.com/specials/index.html

TeamCity will be free for 6.0 users. More specifically, you will get one user license with each 6.0 license.

What I'm confused about it was does the user license cover? Is it for the TC server or is it for the IDE plugin? Or is it for user registered on the server?

We have a mix of 4.x and 5.x license as this point and will likely have the same once 6.0 comes out. We use CruiseControl at the moment, but want to replace it with TC. But we won't do so if it means a downgrade in capabilities for our users over CC. So if the license if only for use of the TC plugin for IDEA, but users with older versions would still be able to view the build status, that would be perfect. The additional advantages of TC with the plugin would likely speed our upgrade process, but I won't cripple our existing users just because we aren't using the latest IDEA everywhere yet.

While I can't give complete and specific pricing information yet, this is
definitely not true.
