Syspeace licensing – a walkthrough
The licensing model for Syspeace is very flexible and easy to use and has been to designed to keep your administrative tasks to a minimum.
First of all, if you haven’t already, download a free trial and install it. Your servers are protected from brute force and dictionary attacks within minutes.
Regsiter your account with a valid email address and a license number will be emailed to you.
If you decide to continue using Syspeace for protecting your Windows servers, Exchange Servers OWA, Citrix, Terminal Server, CRM, RDWEB, Sharepoint and so on then ..
Simply login to the Syspeace licensing site with the mail address you used upon registration, buy your license and the trial license you’ve used earlier will be automatically converted into live license the next time your Syspeace client validates the license or the service is restarted.
So, there is no need to change the license number , you’ve already got it .
A main feature of the Syspeace licensing model is the flexibility – rethinking application licensing models
Instead of having to buy licenses for instance a 1 year licens at a tme per server (which is not uncommon) or having to buy a new license / upgrade license when a major release is up , you buy licenses based on computer days and for how many servers you want.
As an example. If you’ve got a server today and you want to get a ”classic” one year licese for it (everyone tends to think in terms of one year licenses I guess) , you login to the site, get your license and you’re good to go.
Two months later, you buy another server and of course you want that server also to be protected from brute force and dictionary attacks.
Ususally this would get you into the situation where you’d have two different license renewal-dates to remember and that’s just a hazzle for everyone.
With Syspeace though, you simply login and extend your existing license for 10 months and to two servers, thus enabling you to align your license renewal dates to tha same date and therefore simplifying your administration.
With Syspeace minor and major upgrades and even all new versions and patches are included in the license.
Should we release new features or a new major version, it’s already included.
No need to buy a license for version 1 thinking all is good and when version 2 comes along , you realize you’ll have to get an upgrade license to use all the new features.
Moving Syspeace licenses between servers
Also another feature that makes you life easier.
Within the licensing section of Syspeace, there is a ”Reset license” button. Simply press that and the license is reset from the local server and the server is removed from the central database along with its affilation to the license number.
Next step is to install Syspeace on the new server where you want it, activate your license key and you’re good to go.
