Virtual office “Yandex 360 for Business” with mail service and the ability to store data in the cloud ceased to be free from April 17. In case of non-payment, restrictions will appear, Vedomosti writes.
There are currently three plans available on the site: Basic, Optimal, and Advanced. They differ in the amount of disk space for each employee and the number of emails on the mailing lists.
- The basic option implies 100 GB of disk space for one person and 1500 messages for 249 rubles per month per employee.
- The optimal tariff allows you to store 1 TB on the disk and 50 thousand letters for 559 rubles per month,
- Extended: 3 TB of memory and 100 thousand letters for 1399 rubles per user per month.
The free version of Yandex 360 for Business will remain available only for micro-businesses with up to three employees and NGOs, a company representative told the publication.
Experts attribute the introduction of a fee for using the service to an increase in Yandex’s costs for maintaining a distributed infrastructure.
According to them, due to the massive migration of companies to home services in 2022, the load on the cloud resources of local providers has increased sharply, the prices of components have risen sharply, a shortage of almost all hardware components and the number of cyberattacks has expanded.
