How does IBM licensing work?

IBM continues to define a processor, for the purpose of PVU-based licensing, to be each processor core on a chip. A dual-core processor chip, for example, has two processor cores. Licensee must obtain entitlements sufficient to cover all activated processor cores made available to or managed by the Program.

What is IBM full capacity licensing?

Full capacity licensing is based on the overall number of processor cores on the physical server on which the product is installed. Subcapacity licensing is available only in virtualized environments.

Is licensing required for all software?

All software code comes with certain rights and obligations if you want to add it to your codebase. To protect your code and your organization, you need to understand these software licenses before using any code, including libraries and frameworks, you didn’t write yourself.

What is a software subscription fee?

With the software subscription model, customers pay monthly or yearly to access your software. This amount is significantly less than the perpetual license cost and opens the software up to more users.

What is IBM sub capacity?

Sub-capacity licensing lets you license an eligible software product for less than the full capacity of your server or group of servers. It provides the licensing granularity needed to leverage various multi-core chip and virtualization technologies.

Which type of software can be used without paying a license fee?

Open source software is distributed under a variety of licensing terms, but almost all have two things in common: the software can be used without paying a license fee, and anyone can modify the software to add capabilities not envisaged by its originators.

A common differentiation between the two is that subscriptions include the right to use the software, maintenance and support, whereas term licenses are really only for the right to use the software.

What is subscription licensing?

Subscription-based software relates to a monthly or annual licencing model, allowing users to pay a per user fee. Customers typically pay an initial subscription upfront, and are entitled to use the software only during the subscription term, unlike a perpetual licence, allowing them to use software indefinitely.
