License Structure & Pricing

Licenses for the 4DV system can be purchased in one of three ways – (a) User Licenses, (b) Seat Licenses, or (c) Core Processor licenses.

A 4DV User License grants a specific individual usage of the 4DV system.  This license entitles a user to connect to the 4DV system and use the 4DV processing necessary to store and retrieve items as well as to use the 4DV client for advancing analysis and reporting on an individual specific user license basis.

A 4DV Seat License grants any number of individuals to use the 4DV system; however, this usage cannot be concurrent.  As an example, 5 individuals could use a single seat license as long as they are not logged into the 4DV application concurrently.  This license entitles a user 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 concurrent user per seat license basis.

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.

Data costs for 4DV Insight will vary based on the type of data, the volume of data and the data source / provider. Global data feeds are available including geolocated data. Data is retained in the system at the customer site. Data licenses are valid as long as a subscription is in place.
