Deploy encryption key management in the best way for your budget
StorMagic SvKMS is a flexible and robust key manager that allows organizations to centrally manage all of their encryption workflows, whether they’re at the edge, the datacenter, or cloud. SvKMS is available in three tiers, or “Editions” which determine the type of use case and scale of the key management solution required. Depending on the Edition, SvKMS can be deployed as either an on-premise perpetual license, or a cloud-based subscription service, known as Key Management-as-a-Service (KMaaS).
A perpetual SvKMS license is paid for upfront and owned forever with ongoing costs only for maintenance and support contract renewals. The cloud-based KMaaS offering is a subscription and paid for upfront for a specific time period, for example one year, and then renewed thereafter as required. For further details of the features included in each SvSAN Edition license, please refer to the SvKMS features page, or the SvKMS product data sheet.
SvKMS Essentials Edition
SvKMS Essentials Edition is designed for IT and Security Administrators at smaller companies who want to take advantage of built-in encryption for a limited number of use cases or who require only a limited number of keys. It is only available as a cloud-based KMaaS subscription service and there is no additional charge for maintenance and support, with Platinum level support included by default. Packs of keys are added as required for an additional charge. SvKMS Essentials comes with a limit of 50 keys and a single encryption use case.

SvKMS Professional Edition
SvKMS Professional Edition is designed for IT and Security Administrators who need a key manager for a limited number of use cases, which might expand as time goes on. Professional Edition is available as both a perpetual license and as a cloud-based KMaaS subscription service.
If selecting a perpetual license, a corresponding maintenance and support package must also be purchased, however for the KMaaS cloud-based service there is no additional charge for maintenance and support, and it includes Platinum level support by default. SvKMS Professional Edition perpetual licenses can only be used in maximum 2-node clusters, and both perpetual and cloud-based licenses have a limit of 250 keys.

SvKMS Enterprise Edition
SvKMS Enterprise Edition is designed for security professionals at medium to large organizations that have multiple use cases and require a significant number of keys. It contains all the features of SvKMS with no restrictions on cluster size or number of keys.
Like Professional, Enterprise Edition is available as both a perpetual license and as a cloud-based KMaaS subscription service.
If selecting a perpetual license, a corresponding maintenance and support package must also be purchased, however for the KMaaS cloud-based service there is no additional charge for maintenance and support, and it includes Platinum level support by default.
