Ontrack PowerControls Licensing Options
Ontrack PowerControls offers multiple licensing options in a variety of flexible configurations based on data capacity, licence period, servers and simultaneous sessions.
All licensing models can be configured for use within Microsoft Exchange, SharePoint and SQL environments in any combination. Maintenance Services are required with each licensing model except some term licences and subscriptions.
Subscription licences are configured for a specified data capacity or server count and operate on a yearly billing period, available for 2 or 3 year subscription terms. Subscription licences are designed for large enterprises with capacity needs starting at 7,500 mailboxes available in tiers of 5,000 mailboxes up through 100,000 mailboxes. 20 terabytes of SharePoint capacity is available as an add-on to the subscription price. Subscription licences may not be used for commercial or financial gain including, but not limited to, using it for technical or consulting services.
Perpetual licences are configured for specific features and a specified data capacity to match the needs and size of your environment. Configurations begin at 100 mailboxes for Exchange environments, 0.5 terabytes for SharePoint environments and 1 SQL server instance for SQL Server environments. Perpetual licences are not restricted by licence period or number of simultaneous sessions. Perpetual licences are ideal for those who are managing their own corporate production/development systems within their own establishments. Perpetual licences are for internal use only and may not be used for commercial or financial gain including, but not limited to, using it for technical or consulting services.
Commercial licences are configured for specified data capacity for a specified licence period and number of simultaneous sessions. Configurations range from one, two, or three year licence periods including 1 or more simultaneous sessions. A one month licence period is available to consultants and service providers working on a project for an end customer/client. One of our most common Commercial licence configurations includes a one year licence period with unlimited data capacity with one simultaneous session. Commercial licences are easy to move around and are ideal for lab environments or mobile technician environments where you want flexibility that can be tailored to fit a certain project or other specific budgetary or usage cycle. Each Commercial licence requires a USB hardware key (dongle) to operate. Commercial licences may be used for commercial or financial gain such as providing recovery, restoration, and ediscovery services to your end clients.
Term licences are configured for specific features, a specified data capacity or number of servers and a number of months to match the needs and size of your environment. Configurations begin at 100 mailboxes for Exchange environments, 0.5 terabytes for SharePoint environments and as low as 1 SQL Server instance. Term licences are not restricted by number of simultaneous sessions. Term licences are ideal for those who are managing their own corporate production systems within their own establishments. Term licences are for internal use only and may not be used for commercial or financial gain including, but not limited to, using it for technical or consulting services
OEM Licensing is available to companies for integration into data protection, backup, storage or server/appliance solutions. OEM licensing includes features such as private-label branding and other customisations which can enable a more seamless and tightly integrated offering for you. OEM licensing requires a multi-year distribution agreement with minimum revenue commitments and can be customised to meet your needs with respect to product features, pricing model, distribution, fulfillment, reporting, and billing.
Mailboxes = The sum of all mailboxes contained in Microsoft Exchange database files (EDB and log files). Archive mailboxes and public folders are supported, but do not count towards the mailbox total.

Server Instances = The sum of all Microsoft SQL Server instances, virtual or physical for production, development, test, staging and QA environments for any year (2005, 2008, 2008 R2, 2012, 2014, etc.) or edition (Enterprise, Business Intelligence, Express or Standard) of Microsoft SQL Server
The duration (number of hours, months or years) a licence is configured to operate. The licence period begins when the licence is created and expires at the end of the specified licence period.
The number of computers that can simultaneously operate Ontrack PowerControls when using a single licence.
Local Licensing = licence capacity enforcement only allows an Exchange EDB or SharePoint MDF to be opened each time if it is equal to or less than the licenced capacity (number or mailboxes or content database terabytes). This licensing method is also known as point in time enforcement.
Online Licensing = licence capacity enforcement is cumulative for mailboxes or SharePoint terabytes each time EDBs or MDFs are opened. Once the cumulative count nearly approaches the licenced amount, the user is notified and they have the option to purchase a larger licence. The PC or server running Ontrack PowerControls must have a connection to the internet for online licensing. See the user guide for more information.
