ZONA Software Licensing Information
To license any of ZONA's software, simply send our licensing team a purchase order listing the software, options, number of tokens (1 token = 1 license), and operating system. A package will be shipped to you containing the software and associated manuals.
To obtain a license key after you have licensed the ZONA software(s), you must fill out the “Point of Contact (POC)” form that will be provided to you. Once ZONA receives this information, a license key will be sent to you via email.
Licenses are renewed on an annual basis. All licenses are to be paid in U.S.Dollars. Specific terms and conditions that may apply are listed below.
Licensing Terms and Conditions
Included with the Basic License
▪ Customer service is included in the annual license fee (up to 20 hours per year by telephone, fax, email, etc.) Additional support will be charged at ZONA’s T&M rate.
Pricing (Annual License Fees): Classes A-D
▪ 1 token (i.e., license) allows for one ZONA Software job to be executed at a time. (i.e., n tokens allows for n jobs to be executed at one time).
ZONA Software License Manager
ZONA's software use a license manager called ZONA License Server (ZLS). When ZONA's software is licensed, ZLS is included with the delivery of the software, and is installed seperately. In order to execute a ZONA Software job, the software (e.g., ZAERO, ZEUS, ZONAIR...etc.) requires that ZLS issues a license (or token) to the computer that will be executing the job. Depending on user requirements, this can be achieved on multiple computers within a network, or on a single computer.
The following components are needed:
(A) ZONA License Server (ZLS)
(B) USB Dongle (provided by ZONA)
(C) ZONA Software
Note that Java must be installed on both the server machine and client machines.
ZONA Software Installation Options
During installations of ZONA's software, e.g. ZAERO, ZEUS, ZONAIR...etc., you will be prompted to type the IP address of the machine in which ZLS is installed. If all needed components (A, B, C, & D from above) will be installed on the same machine, you may install as the "Node-Locked" option, identifying the IP address as "Localhost". See below for more details regarding each installation option.
1. Node-Locked License Installation
A Node-Locked License allows a single computer to run the ZONA software. The total number of jobs submitted concurrently on this computer cannot exceed the number of licenses (i.e., tokens) purchased from ZONA. This installation requires that all components (A+B+C+D from above) be installed on a single machine.
2. Floating License Installation
A Floating License allows for the ZONA software to be installed on multiple computers. The ZONA License Server (ZLS) must be installed on a machine (i.e., a server) connected to a network that is accessible by any other machines that contain the installations of ZONA's software. Note, that a "Floating License" installation of the ZONA's software must be performed on each machine that is to utilized to run a job. The server (ZLS) then issues one license (or token) to each computer on the network that submits a job. The total number of jobs submitted concurrently, on all computers connected to this server, cannot exceed the number of licenses purchased from ZONA for this particular server.
The server's IP address (e.g., 188.8.131.52), domain name (mycomputer.com), or machine name (e.g., MY_COMPUTER1) is needed to install as a floating license. Please ask your IT Administrator if you do not have this information. You will be prompted to input this information during each Floating License installation. However, the IP address can be entered manually after the ZONA software installation is completed by setting the appropriate environment variable. This information is discussed in more detail in the ZONA License Server (ZLS) Quick Start Guide that is provided with the hard copies and electronic copies of software deliveries.
