You will not be able to complete the setup process without some simple yet required preparation work.
See the Getting Started guide for the complete details.
The system consists of two main modules:
To learn more about the client experience with Yarkon, please use the demo application – it is using the infrastructure of Yarkon Cloud and is functionally identical to it.
Yarkon Cloud is available in two licensing options, the FREE Tier, and the Monthly Subscription.
Yarkon is using your S3 account. You will incur the standard AWS S3 fees, depending on your specific usage and network/API utilization. AWS publishes its S3 fees here: Amazon S3 Pricing. Using Yarkon will not make a difference to your current S3 cost.
The FREE Tier of Yarkon is available at no charge. The free service is identical to the paid monthly subscription, and is limited to up to 5 users.
The FREE Tier is a good fit for most small businesses or personal accounts, as well as for trying the service before committing to a monthly subscription.
Important: we do not allow shared accounts. Why?
Upgrading from the FREE Tier to the paid monthly subscription is done from the Yarkon Admin Console.
You are using the FREE Tier of Yarkon, and now you want to add more than 5 users? Upgrade to the Monthly Subscription to unlock the full power of Yarkon.
To upgrade your account, go to the Account tab of the Yarkon Admin Console and click the “Upgrade Now” button.
You will be presented with a standard credit card payment form; payments are processed in real time, and your account will be updated once the payment clears, usually within a minute or less. Your subscription will be active immediately, there is no wait time. The monthly subscription will be charged on every monthly anniversary of the first payment.
The monthly subscription option of Yarkon is functionally identical to the FREE Tier, and it has no limitation on the number of users you can add.
The current price for Yarkon is $5 per user per month. Volume discounts are available and applied automatically. See the Pricing page for the full details.
Yarkon pricing is based on the number of Active users. Same as with subscription based AWS services, an Active user is a user that is in a status Active – which means a user that can login into the system and use it. Whether the user actually logged in to the system is not something that is tracked or factored into the actual cost.
Your subscription is updated automatically when you make changes to the number of Active users. Changes will be pro-rated to the next billing cycle.
If you have users that you do not expect to be using the system for an extended duration of time, make sure to use the Yarkon Admin Console to put these users into status disabled, so they are not charged. You can always restore these users to status Active if needed later.
For customers who prefer to be billed directly through their AWS account, or look for the AWS Pay-as-you-go model (billed hourly), we offer Yarkon Cloud through the AWS Marketplace.
The current price for an hourly subscription is $0.01 per hour per active user.
Sign up from the AWS Marketplace; a FREE 14 day trial is included.
Make sure to use the “Continue to Subscribe” button at the top right of the listing page.
We are always sad to see you go, but we understand that sometimes the product is not a good fit or does not work for everyone.
If you are using the FREE Tier, there is no need for you to close your account, as there is no cost to you. We will
automatically close any account that has not been used for one hundred and twenty (120) days.
If you are subscribed to the Monthly Plan, you can cancel your subscription using the Yarkon Admin Console – go to the Account tab of the Yarkon Admin Console and click the “Close Account” button.
You can cancel the monthly subscription anytime, but we do not currently offer refunds. If you subscribe to Yarkon through the AWS Marketplace, cancellation should be done through the Marketplace as well.
You should always start with the FREE Tier, so you can experience the product and ensure it is a good fit for your use case.
To get started with Yarkon Cloud, follow the detailed Getting Started guide available. It will lead you through the process of setting up the basic IAM security using the Shared Security Model (see below for more details), subscribing to the service using the AWS MarketPlace, and adding end users to the system.
If you later decide to upgrade to one of the paid subscriptions, the administrator can do so directly from the application.
The Security Model controls user access to the S3 buckets. Yarkon supports different Security Models. In case you want to use the Integrated Security Model, you need to have your organization set up in IAM.
For your convenience, an example of such an organization is provided here: Setting up the users in AWS and granting them permissions to access buckets using Groups and Policies.
Follow this guides to set up Yarkon based on your preferred Security Model:
