No discount from ASIP to Mac OS X Server: that's why – Macitynet.it
In recent days, they complained that Apple at the presentation of the Mac OS X Server management software had not provided a special offer for loyal AppleShare IP users.The answer comes unofficially from the ASIP mailing list: one of the members directly contacted Apple and posted the answer that was provided by the team that follows the application. In practice, the upgrade price from ASIP to Mac OS X server is $ 499 or $ 999 corresponding to the price as new purchase.
If, however, we go to check the price of the ASIP solution with unlimited number of users before the release of Mac OS X Server we see that it was $ 1499: in practice, switching to the new system (unlimited users version) will save $ 500. reason is the intention of Apple to promote the product to old and new users and to "spread" the discount to old and new customers.
We also remind you that Mac OS X server provides a series of additional services that were not included in ASIP and had to be purchased separately from third parties.
