BOT Appliances

Price is simply based on the power of the machines. No differences in software. No limitations. As all robots run sequentaly, the daily hours and disk space  are the only limits that are imposed. You can start with the smallest one and upgrade at any time. There is no setup fee and you can stop using your appliance at each end of the month.
