Charging by the “core”? Really?

I just got off the phone today with another prospect confused by Ipswitch’s flat pricing policy.  The question was phrased something like this:

“If I want to load MOVEit up on an eight-way, quad-core box to handle millions of files a month you’ll charge me the same as if I loaded it up on a single-processor, single-core box?”

The answer, of course, was “yes”.  Ipswitch doesn’t penalize you for bringing better hardware to the party.  We do test a few common hardware configurations to get some baseline performance statistics, but if you’re willing to throw faster hardware (memory, processor, hard drives), fatter network pipes or a more efficient operating system, we won’t dig into your pockets – YOU keep the value.
