Gain the lowest TCO.

Open source products promise more freedom and flexibility, but not all open source licenses are the same.

Liferay Portal is offered under the MIT License, the most liberal and business friendly license available with absolutely no license fees or reciprocity clauses.

Hardware and Software– Liferay Portal can be deployed on all major application servers, databases and operating systems, reaping these additional value benefits:

  • Avoid “vendor lock-in” or dependence on a single third-party.
  • Eliminate the incidental cost of new database or application server licenses a proprietary portal solution might require.
  • Leverage existing in-house expertise with no need to hire or train IT staff on new hardware / software.

Implementation – Liferay Portal’s included portlet suite (over 60) and built-in web publishing and content management system (CMS) reduce or eliminate the initial cost of custom development.

Should development be needed, the MIT license allows in-house development teams to customize the portal instead of using third party developers.

Training & support are available when needed. Because Liferay Portal is standards-based, developer familiarity with the key technologies in Liferay’s architecture shortens the development cycle.

Maintenance– Liferay Portal is supported by a wide range of 24/7 business critical support offerings. Choose the level of support that meets your needs.
