    Lightbulb Micro Licenses

    Hi Guys,

    We're currently reviewing the design of our network, and it got me thinking...

    Have you guys ever looked at the idea of doing micro licenses for cluster deployments?

    Such a license could:

    -Support only 1 or 2 services,
    -Only function with an InterWorx cluster master,
    -Be at a reduced rate and specifically designed to target those wanting to setup scale-out cluster systems.

    My thoughts behind this are based on the fact that if we're clustering, we'd rather scale out and have each box only handle one or two services anyway!

    Please let me know your thoughts.

    Jon

    I'll second that suggestion! It sure would make things a little more affordable. I purchased my license through a reseller to save money but would rather purchase direct.

    I think the price of iworx is very competitive, but I'd like to chime in that a DNS-only option would be nice. Obviously, if one cared to, they could setup a standalone tinydns server, but official support would be helpful.

    Hi guys,

    Any thoughts on this yet?

    We'd really love a DNS only license just now!!

    It's definitely something on our radar -- a lot of people have been asking us for it.

    Another idea we've been kicking around is getting rid of our demo licenses and instead just making all new licenses free for 2-weeks. Any thoughts on that?

    That could be smart!

    Would give people doing new installs some grace too!
