Single User / Single Seat Licenses
A Single User Single Seat (SUSS) License is a license for one user at a time on a designated machine. These licenses also include 1 Personal Use license at no additional charge on Absoft branded products. This allows the registered user (only) to install the software license(s) on a personal home machine as well as their office machine as long as the two machines are not being used at the same time.
Floating Network, Multi User Licenses (Also known as Site-Licenses or Lab-Packs)
Floating Network licenses (FNL) allow users to install software on a single machine/server which is accessed by multiple users on the same local network. Licenses can be used concurrently by no more than the number of authorized users and are for single operating system environments.
Example: 5 people at any one time, all using Absoft Pro Fortran v10 for MacOS/Intel.
If you need to run on multiple operating system environments from a single license, see MaxFlex Licenses below.
Linux "Express" Version 12-Month Licenses
This is a Single User license (see above) where the software is licensed for 12-months only, rather than on a perpetual basis. Subscription Licenses expire at the end of the 12-months and the compiler ceases to function. All applications created with Subscription Licenses are perpetual and do not expire.
Absoft currently offers Subscription Licenses only with its Linux Express Fortran. All other Absoft licenses are perpetual.
MaxFlex™ - Maximum Flexibility Software Licensing (Also known as Site-Licenses or Lab-Packs)
The Mix and Match Software License
Manager from Absoft Corporation provides users with cost savings
and maximum licensing flexibility. Absoft continues to lead the market
with MaxFlex as an industry first allowing customers to mix and match
licenses for multiple environments.
Similarly, customers migrating from 32-bit to 64-bit Linux might initially use one (1) 64-bit Linux license and two (2) 32-bit licenses, then later use (2) 64-bit licenses and one (1) 32-bit license as their migration to a 64-bit environment progresses.
MaxFlex License pricing is based on the
total number of platforms & concurrent users included in the network
license. Please send Email to firstname.lastname@example.org
detailing your requirements and we will be happy to quote specific pricing
options for you.
