google-apps.gifGoogle Apps, which launched last year, is now offering a paid model, as many expected, starting today.

The paid model is named Google Apps Premier Edition and includes:

  • 99.9% uptime guarantee for email**
  • 10 GB / account
  • Ability to turn off ads
  • Shared calendar resources
  • APIs to integrate with your existing infrastructure
    • Single sign-on
    • User provisioning and management
    • Support for email gateway
  • Limited Email migration tools
  • 24/7 assistance, including phone support
  • 3rd party applications and services
  • Plus everything standards Google Apps offers

The cost is $50 per user per year, which is not too bad at all. But if you are unsure, you can sign up for a free trial until April 30th, 2007. To sign up, just go here and fill out the forms. Also there is a NY Times article out on the piece.

The big deal here is probably the phone support, I wonder if Google will manage that themselves or outsource that.
