The license file needs to reside on the same host as the product.
Various license types are available.
A free 2-channel 30-day trial license is provided upon request. The trial licenses are primarily made for evaluation purposes and can also be used in presentations and proof of concept projects.
An N-channel production license can be purchased by making a one-time upfront payment. The purchased licenses do not have an expiration time and are owned perpetually. For pricing, visit an individual product page.
A client, having purchased an N-channel production license, may purchase an M-channel test and development license, where M <= N. The test and development licenses are made to replicate production environments and cost half of the nominal price.
A license file is normally made for a particular version of a product. The license can be upgraded to newer versions of the product at no additional cost during the first year after the purchase. Afterwards, the license can be upgraded at 25% of the nominal price.
The following sequence of actions helps understand the licensing model on a sample example. The example is made for a product priced at $50 per channel.
1. A client requests a 2-channel 30-day trial license for evaluation.
2. Upon a successful completion of evaluation, the client decides to purchase a 4-channel production license, by making an upfront payment of $200 = 4 * $50. The client also prefers to replicate the production environment and purchases a 4-channel test and development license, by making an upfront payment of $100 = 4 * ($50 / 2).
3. A new version of the product is released within a year since the original purchase date. The client requests a free upgrade of the purchased production and test/development licenses.
4. A new version of the product is released after expiration of the graceful upgrade period. The client requests an upgrade of the purchased licenses by making an upfront payment of $50 = 4 * ($50 / 4) for the production license and $25 = 4 * (50 / 8) for the test and development license.
