Professional Access Subscriptions are now retired

Dear Subscribers,

Professional subscriptions are now completely retired and can no longer be renewed. However, you can upgrade them to Corporate with a 50% to 75% discount until the end of September or a 25% discount any time after that date.

When we introduced Professional Access Subscriptions early in 2019, our goal was to make VyOS LTS images and support affordable for small businesses and individuals. Now that it’s possible to get access to images through OpenCollective donations, the former part is no longer necessary.

The support part, however, is no longer economically viable — price increases are accelerating, but support isn't infinitely scalable; we need to grow the team to scale it.  Professional Access Subscriptions have been unavailable for new customers for a while already, and now they are retired completely — existing customers will no longer be able to renew them, only upgrade them to one of the current subscription plans.

However, many of the Professional subscribers are our most loyal customers who’ve been with us ever since the launch of subscriptions. We appreciate your support, and we offer you a chance to upgrade your subscriptions to Corporate at a greatly reduced cost.

The base price for the Corporate Access Subscription is 6000 EUR/year. We offer the following discounts to holders of Professional subscriptions:

  • One or two years: 50% OFF (3000 EUR/year).
  • Three or more years 75% OFF (1500 EUR/year).

This offer is valid until the end of September. After that, you will still be able to upgrade Professional subscriptions to Corporate with a 25% discount.

If you have a Professional subscription paid for more than one year in advance, you can use it until it expires and then upgrade to Corporate with a 25% discount. However, if you want to take advantage of the special offer, feel free to contact us.

If you once had a Professional subscription, but it expired, our special offer is still available to you as well — contact us, and we'll get you set up!

Note that prices for Corporate Access Subscriptions and other currently available subscription plans remain the same. If you have a Corporate subscription, you can upgrade it at the same price as you purchased it.
