License Models


Subscription Licenses are configured for a specified data capacity and operate on a monthly license period.  Configurations begin at 50 mailboxes for Microsoft Exchange environments and 250 Gigabytes for Microsoft SharePoint environments including one simultaneous session only.  Subscription Licenses are designed to be distributed to end clients of cloud providers, hosting providers, IT service providers, or Managed Services Providers (MSPs).  Subscription licenses allow the provider to distribute an added value offering which easily bundles with your existing monthly services and fees.  Subscription licensing requires a minimum of a one year distribution agreement and operates on a monthly distribution, fulfillment, reporting, and billing model.  Subscription licenses may not be used by the end user for commercial or financial gain including, but not limited to, using it for technical or consulting services.  The provider shall not distribute to itself and operate as an end user of the license.


Perpetual Licenses are configured for a specified data capacity to match the size of your environment.  Configurations begin at 50 mailboxes for Microsoft Exchange environments and 250 Gigabytes for Microsoft SharePoint environments.  Perpetual licenses are not restricted by license period or number of simultaneous sessions.  Perpetual licenses are ideal for those who are managing their own corporate production systems within their own establishments.  Perpetual licenses may not be used for commercial or financial gain including, but not limited to, using it for technical or consulting services.


Commercial Licenses are configured for specified data capacity for a specified license period and number of simultaneous sessions.  Configurations range from 1 to 36 month license periods including 1 or more simultaneous sessions.  One of our most common Commercial License configurations includes a one year license period with unlimited data capacity with one simultaneous session.  Commercial licenses are easy to move around and are ideal for lab environments or mobile technician environments where you want flexibility that can be tailored to fit a certain project or other specific budgetary or usage cycle.  Each Commercial License requires a USB hardware key (dongle) to operate.  Commercial Licenses may be used for commercial or financial gain such as providing recovery and restoration services to your end clients.  


OEM Licensing is available to companies for integration into server, storage, or backup solutions.  OEM licensing includes features such as private-label branding and other customizations which can enable a more seamless and tightly integrated offering for you.
