QBank can be configured to use SAML for authentification of users.
A content delivery network (CDN) is a collection of web servers distributed across multiple locations to deliver content more efficiently to users. The server selected for delivering content to a specific user is typically based on a measure of network proximity. For example, the server with the fewest network hops or the server with the quickest response time is chosen. By using a CDN end-user response times can be improved by more than 20%.

When you invest in QBank DAM you will have two cost areas.
The first one is the running subscription fee for access to the software, where the cost drivers are; 1) the edition of QBank, 2) your need for storage capacity, 3) the number of admins with support and in some cases, 4) extra bandwidth capacity.
The second cost area is the implementation project and media portal design.
We provide the connectors as an add-on for every edition of QBank. There is an unique connector for each tool that you choose to integrate. The cost is based on the number of admins using it and the the number of sites you connect.
The monthly fee normally include updates to the latest version of the connector, if not limited by unknown dependencies. The standard package include 10 admins and one deployment site but there are no technical limitations to add as many sites and admins as you wish.
The connectors can be configured to support multiple sites.

To make it easier for you to buy, we have created packages to baseline the design and features. This will help you select the right version to build your customized Media Portal from.
