AutoForm Engineering | Products | Licensing Alternatives

By: Autoform Systems  09-12-2011

In order to satisfy the different needs of AutoForm clients, AutoForm Engineering offers two alternatives for software licensing. The pricing of the two licensing types is in accordance with the client’s benefit.

Node-locked License

A node-locked license is a single-user license. It is valid for one specific computer with indicated Host ID. Operating this computer as a terminal server, redirecting the computer’s display or transferring the license to another computer, as well as copying and operating the computer as a virtual machine are explicitly prohibited. A separate license is required for each AutoForm product. The licenses are stored in a special license file and must be saved in the installation directory. The AutoForm license validity period is limited by contract and by technical measures.

Floating License

A floating license allows several users the right to use the AutoForm software. The software is installed on as many interconnected workstations as desired and can be used within a defined geographical area. A contractually agreed upon defined number of licenses is activated for each AutoForm product. The licenses are located on a central license server, which is linked to the network. They are retrieved from the server as needed. This is only possible as long as there are licenses available. If all of the licenses have been retrieved by other users, the user must wait until a license becomes available. A license is retrieved when starting up the user interface or solver whereas a license is released when exiting the user interface, or when the solver has completed the calculation. The AutoForm license validity period is limited by contract and by technical measures.
