Please think about the following points before you blame us doing "dirty" business practice.That's where you're wrong. The subscription is(among other things for higher tiers) a service to get access to easy and stable updates, and you do indeed loose that functionality without a subscription.
It is a service you pay for to get stable updates, and the pricing keep increasing constantly with no information given on why this happens. I went with Proxmox VE to get a stable system as the price was just fine, but now the price keep increasing, so I have to make a choice, keep paying more and more for the service or use time to migrate to another solution to avoid possible bugs.
I really do like Proxmox VE and Maurer IT, but I think this pricing strategy with frequent silent increases is kinda dirty and something people should be aware of.
- More features every months without any additional costs (eg. ZFS, replication, Ceph support, ...)
- No increase in "Standard" and "Premium" packages since many years
Its just normal business, and before you ask, expect further price adaption next year.
