Apple on Saturday will launch the Apple Maintenance Program for Mac OS X Server, which will keep users that purchase the program up to date on their server software for three years.

An organization running 1-9 servers with an unlimited license for OS X Server can buy the maintenance program for three years at a cost of US$999. Over that period of time Apple will automatically send all upgrades to the customers.
Pricing for the 10-client license of OS X Server running 1-9 servers, with the same maintenance program benefits will cost $499.
“Customers that buy this program will be covered for three years of upgrades,” Brian Croll, Apple’s senior director software, Worldwide Product Marketing, told MacCentral. “We think the program is aggressively priced and its something our server customers will take advantage of.”
Apple is also providing education pricing for the maintenance program. Education institutions that have an unlimited license for Mac OS X can purchase the program for $499. Those that have a 10-client license can purchase the program for $249.
The pricing structure for the maintenance program depends on the number of servers an organization is running.
Mac OS X Server 10-Client License
Mac OS X Server Unlimited-Client License
