1. Where can I find out is my device compatible with COR?
- COR works in your browser to stream applications, so you can use all kind of devices (mobile, tablet/iPad, laptop and desktop computer) to stream applications.
- Read more in the article Devices, browser and bandwidth requirements for COR.
2. Does COR support Single sign on (SSO)?
- Yes, in general we support any SAML2.0 provider (Azure AD, ADFS, Google Apps, Shibboleth, Okta and others with SP federation support).
- Read more about COR integration with Identity providers (IdP)
3. How do I manage users who have access to the COR platform?
- Integration with Identity provider allows you to independently manage users who will have access to the COR platform. Crayon as a service provider will work with you on the integration but the user management is completely on your end.
- In practice, this means you'll put users in groups and assign each group to one of our bundles. For example, users in the COR-Statistics group will have access to the COR-Statistics bundle. Also, when you offboard users in your end (delete them from AD) they will also loose access to COR. No additional management or maintenance needed on your end.
4. How long will it take to deploy COR?
- It basically depends on the number of application you'd like to have in COR. For SPSS alone, we can have it available in as short time as 48 hours. For additional BYOL software we cannot give any guarantees with all the unknown from our side, but we would aim for results within 7 days of signature.
5. What are costs I need to take in account when considering COR?
- There are 3 costs you need to take into account when considering COR: concurrent licences, service fee and streaming costs.
Type of cost Description Concurrent licences In case application requires licence for the software to be used; if you decide to stream free software this cost doesn't exist; Service fee Yearly cost that covers setup and maintenance of the dedicated COR account, training, managed service and dedicated support, software maintenance Streaming costs Monthly cost for the actual number of hours streamed by the number of unique users (throughout a full year, this will mean significant savings, since there will be many long stretches of low usage during summer holidays, spring break, Christmas, Easter, etc).
6. What does Pay-as-you-go model actually means?
- Consumption and licenses are billed according to usage. You are charged for the based on the actual number of hours streamed and the unique number of users who logged to the platform at least once in a month.
- Here's an example. Let's say you've decided to bring 100 concurrent licences into COR and for example due to holidays just 43 users have streamed applications in that particular month. They've streamed 400 hours in total. Monthly cost for that month is created based on the unit price for 43 users and 400 hours.
7. How to estimate number of users and their need for streaming?
- In order to predict and estimate costs, start thinking about usage pattern along the year and brake it down: some months will have high usage others won't. In some months there will be no usage. Than, think about the when is most likely for the users to have the need to start a session (for example what's the schedule for classes and exams). After that, try to predict the number of users in a session and think about how long the session will last. Take into account average number of hours.
What does SPSS demo includes?
- You'll be able to explore COR and SPSS with all modules for a limited time period. Reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org and request a free demo for your organization.
I'm concerned about the privacy of my work. Who has the access to the files in the Home folder on the sessions I'm joining?
- The Home Folder is private for each COR user that is logged in to a streaming session.
