License Server introduces a dynamic way of licensing callas products where local activation is no longer necessary! It grants permission for processing jobs based on process cartridges or credit cartridges. This type of licensing caters for capacity-based processing environments, environments with peak moments and pay per use environments.
License Server introduces a dynamic way of licensing callas products. Unlike the traditional licensing model, local activation is no longer necessary as they can now ask License Server permission to process jobs. This makes true failover for business-critical processes possible! License Server grants permission based on the cartridges loaded into it. There are two types of cartridges:
License Server can be used in capacity-based processing environments, as the only machine that always needs to be running is the machine hosting the License Server – everything else can be fully dynamic. License Server also caters for environments with peak moments. Sometimes there are huge processing peaks on certain times of day, certain days or in specific times of the year. With License Server, you can combine process cartridges for base load and credit cartridges for peak moments. Furthermore, using License Server with credit cartridges is ideally suited for pay per use environments. There is an initial cost for the License Server and after that each processed file uses up some credits from the installed credit cartridge.
