DSpace is an open source system, meaning the software is free to anyone to download, install and use. However, we offer a fully hosted services platform for DSpace to solve the practical problems organisations have in actually deploying the DSpace repository.
The licensing flexibility of open source means that we can provide Koha in a variety of different ways to suite your needs and requirements. The pricing above is for our Ultimo data center. We can also install and support DSpace:
- on your own servers
- on Amazon Web Servers in the Sydney, Singapore and other data centres
- on Microsoft Azure and other clould platforms.
If you require more custom configurations, such as changes to the interface, additional metadata, customised workflow or additional integration, we can undertake this work at our usual customisation and integration hourly rate. This includes workshopping requirements with the client, designing, prototyping, testing and implementing.
We recommend utilising handle.net's services for one-off registration for persistent URL's. This leaves the option of eventually running Dspace internally in your own institution open, without having to adjust any links to your documents.
