How is FusionReactor Licensed?
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 physical boxes, then you need 6 licenses.
Note, that on a single server you may have multiple instances (Tomcat, JBoss, Glassfish etc.) installed on it, but you still only need 1 license for that (virtual or physical) server. Virtual Machines (VM’s) are also classed as separate physical servers and therefore require a license.
2 Servers = 2 Licenses
What types of license are available?
We believe in CHOICE – We offer an annual subscription license as well as a perpetual license.
||A Subscription license will allow you to use FusionReactor for 12 months on your server. After the 12 month subscription period expires, FusionReactor will no longer continue to work. To continue to use FusionReactor you must renew your subscription.
||A Perpetual license works indefinitely. Once installed you may use FusionReactor on that server and the license will never expire. All new Perpetual licenses include 12 months maintenance. Maintenance entitles you to free updates and upgrades of FusionReactor. Renewing maintenance is entirely optional.
What is the definition of a server?
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 physical boxes and 2 of those servers each have 3 virtual machines installed on them – then you need
4 (Physical) + 6 (Virtual) = 10 licenses
Virtual Machines (VM’s) are classed as separate physical servers and therefore require a license.
Is there a Developer version available?
YES – we offer FusionReactor Developer Edition (1 YR SUBSCRIPTION) – this is equivalent to a FusionReactor ULTIMATE Edition – so it has all the product features available. “Developer Version” means a version or edition of the Software to be used only for design, development and evaluation purposes.
Can I try before I buy?
Yes! We offer a 14-day free trial of FusionReactor Ultimate Edition. 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 FusionReactor Administrator without re-installing the software.
How will I receive my license?
You will receive License keys will be delivered by email following the purchase of FusionReactor. Licenses are managed by our licensing portal https://portal.fusion-reactor.com – you will receive a login which will give you access to all the licenses in your account.
Can I upgrade my license?
It is possible to upgrade a previous version of FusionReactor – click here
for details on eligibility and pricing. Upgrades include 12 months of software maintenance commencing from the date payment is made.
How does software maintenance work?
All NEW licenses purchased, include 12 months of software maintenance (product updates and upgrades). Beyond this 12 month period, if you have a PAY-ONE-TIME Perpetual license, you may renew your maintenance every year.
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.
Is maintenance mandatory?
NO – Renewing maintenance is entirely optional – you MUST renew within 30 days of the maintenance expiry though – otherwise you will have to upgrade your license!
If I don't have maintenance - can I upgrade in the future?
