Installing and running Byfrost is easier and more cost-effective than many other document archiving and management solutions
Byfrost has no limits in the number of stored documents or number of users. The fee structure is straight forward; you only pay for processing of files on a fixed monthly basis.
Pricing is based on your chosen formula of the processing speed which best matches your day-to-day use. When using the backup emails area the processing speed is multiplied by 25 (formula x 25), see
You can always change your chosen formula, taking effect from the start of the following calendar month.

Installing and running Byfrost
For a detailed list of files and documents allowed to be taken into Byfrost for processing, see the Extension List. Please note that each file and document added, requires more space than the original file. When files and documents are taken into Byfrost and processed, Byfrost keeps the original file as well as a generated PDF version, thumbnail and indexations of all text, all fully encrypted.
(1) How does it work
Each hour Byfrost processes and archives the number of documents and files based on your chosen formula, with a maximum number of documents and pages. The maximum number of pages is based on a Fair Use Policy, giving you an average of 100 pages per document. Should the total number of pages, within the hour, exceed the maximum allowed for the formula, the speed of the processing will be decreased by 25% for the next hour. However you will always keep a minimum capacity of 25% and when the number of pages again is below the maximum per hour for your chosen formula, the processing speed will directly return to 100%.
(2) Hosting resources
For free hosting, adequate server resources are available but within reasonable use related to the subscribed formula. If a subscription is cancelled, the basic hosting will be cancelled as well and all the data securely deleted. Should you wish to cancel your subscription we can provide you with a basic export for free or an advanced export per quote, contact us for more details.
Be aware that each file and document added, requires more space than the original file. When files and documents are taken into Byfrost and processed, Byfrost keeps the original file as well as a generated PDF version, thumbnail and indexations of all text, all fully encrypted.
