A statement from D-Link said the payment-free trial was initially offered until the end of June given the challenging times. As there was no sign of any recovery yet, the company said free use would be extended until 30 September.
D-Link A/NZ managing director Graeme Reardon explained, "Nuclias Cloud is already different to most other solutions in this space as it is available to MSPs on a month-to-month basis with no lock-in contracts.
"That said, MSPs, like many other businesses, have been doing it tough recently, so whilst we see some signs of economic recovery, we'd like to continue to support our partners with this additional three months fee-free Nuclias Cloud Managed Network Solution subscription.
