Trade-up options

Two Managed Virtual Server license options that support trade-up scenarios from the BigFix Starter Kit to the full BigFix Lifecycle offering are available. The Managed Virtual Server price metric simplifies pricing and is based on the number of server operating systems that a business needs to manage. This broader solution adds a number of key features beyond the BigFix Starter Kit for Lifecycle, including operating system deployment, for re-imaging either to repair a computer or to deploy an operating system deployment on new machines (bare metal deployment). In addition, BigFix Lifecycle supports remote control capabilities to decrease on-site servicing costs, as well as advanced patch management which reduces security exposures on mission critical servers.
