NCache Professional provides licensing based on two factors:
- Logical Processors
NCache offers various plans based on the number combination of these two factors. For license calculation, please refer to Alachisoft pricing page or contact NCache sales team.
These licensing schemes use Subscription based licensing model which is explained below later.
Server Only Activation
The number of licenses required is based on the number of logical processors and RAM of the server. You can connect unlimited clients to a purchased server, however the server needs to be activated with the activation key based on the plan the user has purchased.
Resizing an Activated Machine
For cases when the memory or core count increases resulting in the requirement of new licenses, a friendly warning will be logged for reactivation with increased number of licenses. If after a 15-day interval of logging the warning, reactivation does not take place, the caches stop working.
Subscription Based Licensing Model
NCache Subscription based licensing model requires to pay an annual fee by the customer for a specific period. The subscription can be purchased by the user for a time period of 1 year to the maximum of 5 years. The user can activate his license once the subscription is bought by the user. The license activation scheme is same for NCache server as well as client.
This subscription must be renewed at the end of the subscription period. Otherwise all the running caches will be stopped after a 30 day grace period post expiry provided by NCache.
