If you have an FR Cloud account, then metrics and alerts will be sent to the cloud as well as locally. Cloud is ideal for capturing and maintaining metric data. It is also the best choice if you have multiple servers or dynamic containerized environments as it delivers aggregated views across all of your servers and Cloud offers on-demand pricing.
If you are unable to use a Cloud-based solution or simply prefer On-prem then you need an On-prem license.
FusionReactor Cloud enables you to either make RESERVATIONS for how many servers you would like to purchase each month – or you can use the ON-DEMAND licensing so that we charge you based on your actual usage. On-demand is great if you’re running Docker containers in a dynamic environment.
Each physical or virtual server (host) requires one FusionReactor license. If you are using Cloud then up to 4 instances or 4 Docker Containers are covered with a single license seat. If you exceed 4 instances/Dockers, then you will require a second license e.g. 4 instances = 1 seat, 6 Docker containers = 2 seats, 13 instances = 4 seats, etc..
FusionReactor Cloud accommodates a more flexible model of being able to support static and dynamic server monitoring. When you reserve a host (server) for a monthly period this is equal to 750 hours. You can think of this as a bucket of time – which can contain up to 750 hours. If you just have one server using time from the bucket, then it will fill over time – so that each month, the bucket is filled. If you introduce a second server, which comes online for say 24 hours within the month – then this time will also go into the bucket. When the bucket is full, then (in this case) at the end of the month you would require 24 hours extra time, which would be calculated on-demand and which you would be charged for. The on-demand (dynamic) rate is 20% higher than the reserved rate.
This model is interesting for customers who have (say) 2 static servers and 3 dynamic servers that are coming online frequently, but not permanently – in this case, you could reserve (say) 3 servers and have the 3rd server cover the time for the 3 dynamic servers at the lower rate.
A Cloud Subscription license will allow you to use FusionReactor both On-Premise and in the Cloud for the subscription period – Monthly or Annual. FusionReactor Cloud is available as ULTIMATE or ENTERPRISE Editions
Subscription renewals are automatic if your credit card details are OK.
FusionReactor offers different Editions which are explained here.
Each physical or virtual server requires one FusionReactor license – all of the instances which are installed on that server are covered by the one FusionReactor license. So, if you have (say) 6 virtual machines, then you need 6 seats on your license key.
Note, that on a single server you may have multiple instances (Tomcat, JBoss, Glassfish, ColdFusion, etc.) installed on it, but you still only need for that (virtual or physical) server. Virtual Machines (VM’s) are also classed as separate physical servers and therefore require a license.
Subscriptions are purchased on a monthly or annual basis, if you can make an annual commitment then you can make substantial savings. Your subscription will last until you cancel it and will renew automatically and be charged on your credit card. If for some reason your payment fails then you will be contacted by our payment provider and then by us. If the situation is not rectified then FusionReactor will no longer be licensed and will stop working.
Perpetual licenses are no longer available, if you are using a Perpetual license please see our Maintenance page to see how to buy additional licenses.
After 14 days, the Trial simply disables itself, without the need to uninstall it. Evaluators can turn the Trial into any full version by entering a valid license key into the On-Premise FusionReactor About page without re-installing the software.
FusionReactor Cloud licenses are managed via your Cloud account. You can access your FusionReactor Cloud account here https://app.fusionreactor.io/auth/login
For On-Premise click here for details on eligibility and pricing. Upgrades include 12 months of software maintenance commencing from the date payment is made.
For Cloud, please refer to the billing page within your Cloud account interface.
If you have a PERPETUAL license, then this license must have current valid maintenance to be eligible to upgrade.
It is always more cost effective to purchase the annual maintenance rather than upgrading individual licenses. Click here for more information on maintenance options and maintenance policy.
