New license model 2018
Earlier I wrote a blog about how the instance bound license works (instance bound licenses in Episerver) when hosting customers solutions in Microsoft Azure Web Apps. From 2018 Episerver will remove the old server bound license and we will only sell instance bound licenses.
Now you may think, what?! Why?! How will I as a customer/partner affect by this.
For customers already running server bound licenses you will not need to change anything or upgrade the license. You can choose to upgrade your server bound license to get more flexibility surrounding your hosting environment. For new customers we will only sell one license, the instance bound license. This will make it easier for all to only have one license model in our price list. The license will be activated and checked through our license server.
With the new instance bound licensing we will have more control of all licenses out there for new customers and how many sites/instances the customers running. It will also make it easier for you as a partner/customer activating/deactivating sites/instances directly under admin as you do now for instance bound license.
If you are running physical servers you can equal one instance as one server.
For more information or questions please contact your account executive (fancier name for sales guy ) at Episerver.
