License Count and Invoicing

License Count and Invoicing

Note: This article applies to Nerdio Manager installs deployed prior to October 1, 2021. Starting October 1, 2021, the Nerdio Manager pricing has changed to Monthly Active Users.

This article explains the two different license types available for Nerdio Manager, how they are inventoried, and thus billed on a monthly basis.

When using Nerdio Manager you can choose between two pricing models.

  • Per-named user ($4/month) – maximum number of unique users assigned to AVD host pools at any given time in the past month

  • Per-concurrent user ($6/month) – maximum number of unique users connected to AVD hosts pools at any given time in the past month

The one that fits best (cheapest) is the one we recommend using.

Every month our system inventories how many unique users have been assigned or connected (depending on license type, see above) to AVD host pools at any given time.

This will be the number of licenses that get billed through Azure. Billing takes place on, or about, the first of every month (UTC time).

Example named license: If at any time within a month you have a maximum of 250 users assigned to one or multiple host pools (we will de-duplicate the assignments, meaning a single user being assigned to multiple host pools will only be counted once) license costs will be $1000 (250 x $4), regardless of how many users were connected at peak.

Example concurrent license: If at any time within a month you have a maximum of 325 users connecting to one or multiple host pools (we will de-duplicate the assignments, meaning a single user being assigned to multiple host pools will only be counted once) license costs will be $1950 (325 x $6), regardless of how many users were assigned at peak.
