Multi-user licensing

A license is needed for every server where a Genero product is installed and for every user that can access it to run your applications.

For example, when an application is requested from a user agent (desktop or Web browser), the dispatcher starts a Dynamic Virtual Machine (DVM) to handle the connection. It is the DVM that consumes the license.

When the application is closed and the DVM is stopped, the license is freed. This license is then available for another user. In this way the license controller maintains a pool of licenses and only active users consume licenses.

This section describes the options you have for purchasing volume licenses to ensure that you have a sufficient pool of licenses available when users connect to a server to run your applications.
