TOPIC: Licencing Scheme

Licencing Scheme 8 Years, 6 Months ago Karma: 0
Dear all,

We have purchased 10 licenses of the following type:
Product : GO-Global for UNIX v2.2
License Type: concurrent 1
and we were sent 10 product codes.


Since we have 3 servers I want to share the license on those servers.

Therefore when all servers are up and running users should be able to connect to any of them [i.e. 6 to the first server 3 to the second one and third or 5-3-2 and so on.

If two of the servers are up and running users should be able to connect to those servers [i.e. 6 to the first server and 4 to the second or 8-2 and so on.

Finally, when only one server is up all the 10 users should be able to connect to this one)

First of all I would like to ask you if the above scenario is feasible given that we have purchases 10 licenses.
If yes [b]What kind of licensing scheme should be followed in this case?[/b]

Thank you in advance for your help,

Dimitris

Dimitris,

I don't see a scenario where all described scenarios would be supported by the same licensing scheme.

In scenario one, you would likely want to use the 3-way redundancy method. This requires a minimum of 3 dedicated servers (may also be GG servers but not required).

Scenario two sounds like a temporary fail-over state, using the 3-way redundancy method. A better method may be to use the "License file method" where two servers point to each other and each can redirect a user to the other license server once the server runs out of licenses. However, this approach does not provided any real fail-over when one goes down unless you purchase an equal number of licenses for each server.

Your final scenario describes the use of a central license server.

My suggestion is to contact the Support team and ask them to send you some documentation on your preferred scheme.
