Google G Suite Licensing — Which Is the Right License for Me?

May 15th, 2017

Google G Suite — Google’s collaboration tool. In the following post, we will explain which license types Google provides and what the differences between the individual versions are. In general, Google has kept the G Suite license model rather simple. Each personalised email address is a user (name@yourcompany.com). Email aliases for groups, such as, for example, sales@yourcompany.com and support@yourcompany.com, are included in the fee and don’t count as additional users. The actual use of the various modules provided by the G Suite does not play a major role for now.
