Licenses for the 4DV system can be purchased in one of three ways – (a) Seat Licenses, (b) Core Processor License, or (c) Cloud License.
A 4DV Seat License grants a specific individual; named user usage of the 4DV system This license entitles named users to connect to the 4DV system and use 4DV processing necessary to store and retrieve items as well as to use the 4DV client for advanced analysis and reporting on a per named user license basis. Seat licenses can be transferred to different users when a user no longer needs access to the 4DV system. An individual named user cannot be added and removed more than three times per calendar year; on the third add that is considered a full year of continuous usage for that named user license.
The 4DV Core Processor License allows any number of users on the system concurrently. This license grants any number of users to log into the 4DV system and is only limited by the available processing power of the license processor cores. As an example, if an enterprise licensed the 4DV system for a 2-CPU / Dual-Core system, that would require four Core Processor licenses and would entitle the given Enterprise to have any number of users connect to and login to the given 4DV system concurrently.
A 4DV Cloud License allows any number of users on the system concurrently. The license grants any number of users to log into the 4DV system and is only limited by the available processing power of the licensed virtual cpu’s (vcpu’s). As an example, if an enterprise licensed the 4DV system for a 16 vcpu cloud instance, that would require a 16 vcpu cloud license and would entitle the given enterprise to have any number of users connect to and login to the given 4DV system concurrently.
Additionally, there is a 4DV Alert Recipient License, which grants a specific individual access to alert notifications from the 4DV system based on the user-specified criteria.
All 4DV Licensing models require a yearly maintenance fee. This maintenance fee covers and entitles the license holder to install and use maintenance updates of the 4DV system and client software.
