Embarcadero development and database tools can be purchased through three main Licensing and Deployment Solutions. The Workstation licensing option is for individual users, while the Network-based Named and Concurrent licensing options provide a flexible, cost-effective solution for organisations with a large number of users.
We suggest you speak to us before you make your licensing choices so we can help ensure you are on the most cost effective scheme. Please call us on +44 (0)1364 655123 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
A Workstation (aka Named) licence is for use by one person, and may not be shared by multiple users. The Workstation licensing option works best for power-users who need a copy of the software available on their workstation at all times. Workstation licencees are required to create an Embarcadero Developer Network account in order to register their product.
Network Named User
A Network Named User licence is similar to Workstation licensing in that a licence is designated to an individual. Licences are managed over a network using a Licence Server. The Network Named User is permitted access to that licence at all times but may be restricted by the Administrator, if required. This option has many advantages including centralised administration, fast and easy provisioning and de-provisioning of software assets, and asset management features including usage reports.
Network Concurrent licences are managed through the Licence Server. This provides multiple users with the flexibility of using any Embarcadero product, but each user will only acquire a licence when the application or feature is open. This licence option tracks the number of simultaneous users.
Network Concurrent licences are only valid for the geographic region in which they are sold. Global contracts can be purchased on a contractual basis.
