The Stream social Intranet software can be deployed in the Cloud (we recommend Amazon Web Services) or within your own infrastructure on-premise. Following are common questions raised by our customers about Stream licensing.
Q. What currency is the pricing listed on the website?
A. US dollars. If you are in Australia it excludes GST.
Q. Do you host Stream on your own infrastructure?
A. No. We deploy and manage Stream (the Cloud version) with Amazon Web Services (AWS).
Q. What happens when the 14 day trial expires?
A. When the trial expires, you’ll no longer have access to your Stream trial. You can choose to enter your credit card information at that time and choose a Stream paid plan to move to. You can also use Stream for 3 users for free, forever.
Q. Do you store my credit card information?
A. No. We work with a trusted 3rd party provider (Infusionsoft) who will charge your credit card on a monthly basis once you have signed up for a paid plan.
Q. What happens to my content if I choose to cancel my Stream Cloud subscription?
A. Your Stream account will be permanently removed from our Cloud service, i.e. you will lose all of your content.
Q. Is paying by Credit Card the only payment option?
A. The Cloud option of Stream does require a valid Credit Card. However, the on-premise version of Stream can be paid either by Credit Card or by Bank Wire Transfer.

Stream hosting in the Cloud

A. At this time we do not support more than 500 users within our Cloud offering of Stream. We are working towards supporting a dedicated Cloud option in a future release of the product.
Q. Is there a file size limit for each plan in the Cloud?
A. We currently do not impose a file size limit. We closely monitor the size of each account. We have contacted individual customers and informed them they should consider moving to a dedicated plan with AWS due to the nature of how they are using Stream.
