Floating LicensesFloating Licenses

For multiple users on multiple devices.

A Floating license is recommended if you have 3 or more part-time users of ExtendSim who have access to the same network. The Floating License allows multiple ExtendSim users to work concurrently (you choose how many) on multiple computers.

Products available as Floating licenses include:

Model Developer Editions -- ExtendSim Pro, ExtendSim DE, and ExtendSim CP

Analysis RunTime

__________

Licensing

The Floating (concurrent user) License is a team-based license used for the deployment of ExtendSim to multiple users through native installation on multiple devices. It's typically cost-effective when you have 3 or more part-time ExtendSim users (full-time users would benefit from the Individual license.)

This license also allows users to check out an ExtendSim license, disconnecting it from the company network to work off-line for a period of time. Checked out licenses can easily be returned to the pool of licenses after reconnecting to the company network.

A Floating License must be installed and used within a single, specified continent: Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, North America, or South America. (Global Licenses are also available. Please contact Imagine That Inc. for pricing and availability.)

Use over the internet of a Floating license is prohibited. See the ExtendSim ASP license if you wish to provide access to ExtendSim over the internet.

License Management for the Floating License

The ExtendSim application is installed on multiple computers and tied over the company’s network to a Server where License Manager Software (LMS) is installed. The LMS:

Keeps track of the number of licenses concurrently in use or checked-out (roaming). When each person finishes using ExtendSim and checks the license back in or it has been 30 days since the license was checked out, the LMS returns the license to the pool for others to use.

Generates reports for analysis.

Allows you to add more users without reinstalling the ExtendSim application or license management software.

Notifies you when your maintenance renewal date has been reached.

Enforces the license policy.

Documentation

All ExtendSim products include electronic versions of the ExtendSim User Reference and Technical Reference plus Quick Start Guides for each product. All documentation is also available online for download.

Support & Upgrades

Maintenance & Support Plans are required for all Model Developer Edition Floating licenses and must be renewed on an annual basis to continue receiving support, upgrades, discounts, and other special offers.

__________

Purchasing and Installing an ExtendSim Floating License

Floating Licenses are custom licenses so must be purchased through Imagine That Inc. or, outside the US, please contact your local ExtendSim reseller. (In the US, Imagine That Inc. is the sole source for Team-based licenses.)

Floating Licenses require the installation of a License Manager on a Server and the ExtendSim application on Client devices. For more details, please see Installing & Managing • Floating Licenses.


Node-Locked LicensesNode-Locked Licenses

For multiple users on one device.

If you have more than one simulationist, but only want to install ExtendSim on one device (eg. a computer in a secure environment), you need a Node-Locked license. The Node-Locked license allows multiple ExtendSim users (you choose how many) to work sequentially on a single device.

Products available as Team licenses include:

Model Developer Editions -- ExtendSim Pro, ExtendSim DE, and ExtendSim CP

Analysis RunTime

__________

Licensing

The Node-Locked license is a team-based license intended for sequential use on one computer.

A Node-Locked license can be installed on only one computer, but will allow multiple users access to ExtendSim on that computer. It's a great idea if you have a secure environment where many people may need to access ExtendSim on an occasional basis.

Since there is no license manager for the Node-Locked license, the application gets installed in the computer's Public folder rather than an individual user's folder so any user on that computer can access ExtendSim.

Use over the internet of a Node-Locked license is prohibited. See the ExtendSim ASP license if you wish to provide access to ExtendSim over the internet.
