A Managed Meeting Center Server (Cloud) is delivered as a software service (SaaS) from the Amazon Cloud which provides the highest levels of security and, of course, 24 x 7 application monitoring.

Deployment of a Managed Meeting Center Server (Cloud) requires

  1. A one-time set-up fee
  2. A Subscription for the Managed Server
  3. At least one Leader or Facilitator subscription covering the required number of leader and/or facilitator licenses.

Typically, you will purchase your Managed Server (Cloud) through the Certified MeetingSphere Partner closest to you geographically, or closest to your industry.

U.S. Government agencies purchase the Managed Server (Cloud) under GSA Contract GS-35F-514BA.

UK Government customers purchase the Managed Server (G-Cloud) via the Digital Marketplace (G-Cloud 10).

*Disclaimer: MeetingSphere is not meant as a tool for mass communication. The number of concurrent participants supported in a meeting depends on the equipment and network infrastructure participants use. For example, participants joining without a headset or over a noisy line can force leaders to revert to "Mute all/Push-to-talk" early. Likewise, several participants sitting behind one slow firewall can spoil the screen sharing experience for these users. Moreover, events and conditions on the Internet which are outside MeetingSphere's control can affect the quality, in particular, of voice connections.

'Anytime sessions' to which participants contribute in their own time do not require a voice conference and will accept contributions from several hundred participants.
