The partnership between Ephox and Moxiecode came as a result of widespread need for enterprise grade support and licensing for TinyMCE. When integrating the editor into their software or web site, some companies prefer a standard commercial license with clearer entitlements than an open source license provides. Others need help from a team of expert support staff. Ephox Enterprise TinyMCE fills these gaps with a degree of reliability that is unprecedented with open source online authoring software.
Ephox will initially introduce three Enterprise TinyMCE offerings: Gold, Silver, and Bronze. The Gold subscription offering consists of a commercial license packaged with enterprise support, which includes email and phone support, installation guidance, and version upgrade assistance. Customers also are entitled to all fixes and release updates during the subscription period. The Silver and Bronze offerings include commercial licenses for those clients that do not require enterprise support. In addition to the commercial offerings, Ephox will make available a Community Edition package under the LGPL open source license at no charge.
