Whether you’re a small team looking to grow in the future or an established enterprise that needs a custom cloud solution, we have version control hosting to meet your needs. We provide highly customizable Perforce solutions that can save your team money by reducing DevOps costs. While many situations are unique and pricing can vary, this article starts by explaining the standard pricing for Assembla Perforce Cloud and then details the various custom options available with Assembla Perforce Enterprise.

Assembla Perforce Cloud

The starting price for Perforce on Assembla is $52.25 per user per month (12-month term) with no additional fees — the Perforce license is already included. With Perforce Cloud hosted by Assembla you get access to the Helix Core version control system you already know, including the integrations into Unreal Engine and Unity. This package includes up to 100 Helix Core users, 1TB of cloud storage and our advanced Agile IT Project Management tool.

Standard support from our team of Perforce DevOps experts is included, providing your teams with 12×5 email and chat support. For an additional 20% you can also upgrade to premium support, which includes 24×5 email, chat, and phone support, a dedicated Zendesk ticketing instance, screen sharing sessions, guaranteed SLAs, and a free three-month license to Travis CI.

Not only do you get world-class support and DevOps expertise with Assembla, you also get best-in-class security and data protection. We are SOC 2 Type 2 Certified and host data centers in the US & EU in compliance with their regulations. Assembla Perforce Cloud includes tools for running security scans on your source code to detect unencrypted passwords and access keys.

Collaboration Tools

When it comes to day-to-day management of your projects, Assembla has tools to help with that, too. We support the Perforce P4 Command-Line Client, which enables admins and power users to quickly gain access to operations and exercise complete control over your Perforce instance. And, of course, you can expect standard GUI support for every day tasks like commits, merge requests, code compare, and backups. We also provide our own all-in-one cloud-based project management and ticketing solution to help you streamline communication, tracking, and reporting.

Assembla Perforce also supports Git and Subversion repositories for teams that work across several version control systems, and we have integrations with industry leading tools such as Slack, Jira, Unreal Engine, Unity, and more.

Assembla Perforce Enterprise

Assembla Perforce Enterprise includes everything from Assembla Perforce Cloud on a customer infrastructure with additional enterprise-level features, all fully managed by Assembla. In an Assembla Perforce Enterprise setup, the Assembla DevOps engineers act as an extension of your in-house team, providing white glove monitoring and service.

With Perforce Enterprise there are no user or storage limits and you get dedicated single-tenant AWS hosting. Standard and premium support are available similar to what is offered with Perforce Cloud but Perforce Enterprise offers an additional Platinum level support that upgrades support coverage to 24×7 across all solutions. For more details about our support plans, see the Enterprise Support page.

Custom Infrastructure

A key benefit of Perforce Enterprise is its customizability. Our team will work with you to design a custom infrastructure to support your business, including globally distributed AWS server setups and access to additional Perforce tools like Helix Swarm, Helix Admin, Helix DAM, and Helix Plan. You’ll also have the following customizable features:

  • Local Proxy Maintained On-Premises

Is Perforce Free?

For teams of up to 5 users you can use Helix Core for free on Perforce’s official website. With the free version of Perforce you are limited to 20 workspaces and 1GB of storage. You get access to all the Helix Core features but will need to manage your AWS infrastructure and version control settings. If that sounds like too much overhead, you can try out Helix Core for free as part of Assembla’s free trial.

How much does a Perforce license cost?

Perforce Helix Core license costs vary based on the size of your team, the amount of resources your project requires, and whether you are using on-premises or cloud hosting. As teams grow there are discounts for having more users. 

Assembla Perforce Cloud pricing includes the Perforce license cost. Perforce Enterprise uses custom pricing to account for the bulk user discount and other custom fees based on storage and support needs.
