This article describes different types of licenses ApexSQL offers

Description

ApexSQL offers 4 types of licenses:

  1. Individual
  2. Site
  3. Enterprise
  4. Floating

Individual license

For applications licensed per user, an individual license is for the use of a single user only. This means that only 1 user can use 1 license. If there are multiple users, multiple licenses are needed.

For applications licensed per instance, an individual license is to be used on a single SQL Server instance only. If there are multiple instances, multiple licenses are needed.

Site license

A site license can be activated on an unlimited number of instances and can be used by an unlimited number of users. Instances and users must be at a single geographic work site. A single geographic work site is defined as one or more locations that are not physically separated by more than 1 mile/1.6 km.

Enterprise license

An enterprise license can be activated on an unlimited number of instances and can be used by an unlimited number of users, without geographical limitations.

Floating license

A floating license can be activated on the predefined number of SQL Server instances (default is 10, but additional activations can be purchased), but used only on 1 instance at a time. It is currently available for ApexSQL Log and ApexSQL Recover only. Learn more here.
