Recently there have been changes to the purchasing and renewal of licenses with Alt-N Technologies’ products. Alt-N has moved away from their fixed tier licensing system to something they call Flex Licensing.
What advantages does the new Flex Licensing system provide?
- MDaemon and it’s plugins can now be licensed for any number of users (minimum of 5). For example MDaemon can be licensed for 9, 62, 113, 1478, etc user counts. With the old fixed tier system if a customer needed more that 100 accounts then their only option was to upgrade to a 250 user version. Having 250 user accounts will most likely exceed a company’s current and forecasted needs. With Flex Licensing you can purchase just the number of users that you need!
NOTE: we do recommend to purchase more accounts then you would currently need to allow for some degree in growth.
- Have you ever needed to wait until a slow time (i.e. after hours or on a weekend) to enter your new license key, because you knew that entering the key would require you to restart the MDaemon service? Or maybe you renewed your MDaemon license and forgot to enter the new Registration Key? This will be a thing of the past. Once the MDaemon server does an update check your license statistics (i.e. number of users allowed, renewal dates, etc) will be automatically updated. No need to remember to enter your new Registration Key or restart the MDaemon service. Of course there is also a method in place to force the update to trigger so that your license will get updated promptly!
