Wibu-Systems' Video Podcast Channel Wibu-Systems Wibu-Systems team@wibu.com clean Licensing Craves the Cloud CodeMeter License Central and its CodeMeter Cloud Lite extension provide a simple and streamlined way to use licenses directly in the cloud. The cloud has found its way into our daily lives. This starts in the private sphere with music streaming services and has now reached IoT devices that load your machine handbooks into the cloud in a secure and authenticated fashion. The same also applies to software licensing and digital content: unimaginable without the cloud.

With CodeMeter License Central, Wibu-Systems has for many years been offering a solution for distributing licenses simply and securely across the cloud. But CodeMeter License Central has even more to offer: With automatic extensions, time restrictions, and license returns, CodeMeter License Central is the most versatile kit for cloud licensing in the market. In addition to licensing, CodeMeter License Central and its CodeMeter Cloud Lite extension provide a simple and streamlined way to use licenses directly in the cloud.

During this session, we will examine three different cloud licensing projects centered around CodeMeter License Central:

Project #1: User License on Two Devices

The software is a Windows-based application that runs on the local PC of a user. The user installs the software on two separate devices. Both installations are connected to the same vendor‘s user account. The software works offline without any time limitation.

Should the user want to use the software on a third device, he should first deactivate the license on one of the existing devices. If the device is offline at the time of license deactivation, the license will be automatically deleted as soon as an internet connection is established.

Project #2: Online License Request for Service Technicians

A service technician uses a locally installed software. At every start of the application, the software checks for the license in the cloud and extends the license in the local cache by 30 days. If the service technician is offline, the license is still running for 30 days. If the technician stays offline for more than 30 days, the license stops running from day 31.

A license administrator can assign new licenses and thus new entitlements to the service technician via a dashboard in the cloud. These will be updated automatically the next time the software is started.

Project #3: Mixed On-Premise / Cloud Licenses

A vendor offers both on-premise software and SaaS services. Both can be provided with the same licensing technology, since CodeMeter License Central is already integrated with SAP for the creation of on-premise licenses. SAP handles on-premise and cloud licenses in the exact same way; it is CodeMeter License Central that decides how the license is used.

Join us for this webinar to learn about the requirements and the implementation techniques that will allow you to create effective and customized cloud licensing projects.

During the class, we will cover several interesting aspects of cloud licensing that are currently available:

  • Foundations of CodeMeter License Central
  • CodeMeter licenses in LAN, WAN, and the cloud
  • Simple licensing with CodeMeter Cloud Lite
  • Real-life projects from the field
    • User license on two devices
    • Online license request for service technician
    • Mixed on-premise and cloud licenses
  • Overview of possible additional developments with CodeMeter cloud licensing

High Availability for License Creation The choice for the most convenient, secure and performing hosting solution is one not to underestimate, both in terms of setup, operation and maintenance. Wibu-Systems offers a wide array of competitive hosting services for your CodeMeter License Central Online banking and online brokerage are two of the most security-critical applications on the Internet. The servers for these applications are usually double redundant and located in secure data centers, in accordance with business disaster recovery plans. The operating costs account for several hundred thousand euros per year. This contrasts with the hosting of websites, which is offered at affordable rates by Amazon, United Internet, Microsoft Azure and other service providers, or can even be done independently on one’s own computer. The operation of CodeMeter License Central is comparable with neither online banking nor with website hosting. Taking into account security requirements, efforts and costs associated with the setup and maintenance, CodeMeter License Central situates in the middle of such extremes.

During this one-hour webinar, we show all the different options we make available for the hosting of your CodeMeter License Central with our Wibu Operating Services (WOPS), from the simple and cost-effective Datacenter Edition to the High Performance and High Availability services.We will specifically cover the following main themes:

  • Overview of the available packages:
    • Datacenter Edition
    • Dedicated Server
    • High Performance Edition
    • High Availability Package
  • Security requirements:
    • DMZ and security area in the Wibu-Systems data center
    • Security monitoring
    • Available access options and access protection measures
  • Hosting or operation, what is the difference?
    • Hardware components and overall infrastructure
    • System updates
    • Application updates
    • Application maintenance
    • Availability monitoring
  • Service Level
    • Basic availability

Even if hosting CodeMeter License Central at your facilities seems to be the best option, understanding your complete risk landscape is paramount. That’s why we recommend that you should evaluate all the possible alternatives. Wibu-Systems is proud to offer a competitive set of packages you can easily access remotely, knowing that they will benefit from the latest CodeMeter License Central updates, security patches and features.In a time when business resilience has leapt to the forefront, Wibu-Systems helps you protect your business profitability.

In Part Two, now that you have seen the effectiveness of the comprehensive solution as a whole, we will step backwards and show you how to connect Salesforce and CodeMeter License Central.In particular, in this podcast we will navigate through the following specific topics:

Part One: Combined use of the two systems

  • From the ISV's perspective:
    • How to generate a project with Salesforce assets
    • How to transfer a project to CodeMeter License Central
  • From the user's perspective:
