Licensing model

Modelio provides licenses from single users to large teams. Choose the right license model for your own needs.

Node-locked license

A node-locked license is a license locked to a single machine. The license manager locks the license to a HostID of the machine on which you install the product.

Floating license

Floating license are distributed by a license server and can be shared licenses between different users. For example, a 7 member team can use just 3 floating licenses, provided that a maximum of 3 people are using Modelio at the same time

Thus, using floating licenses, the price may be lower if licenses are shared between several users.

Use Modelio on any workstation with the same licenses

As opposed to node-locked licenses, floating licenses are not bound to the client workstations. Anybody can work from anywhere. The floating license system will lock a license token, whatever workstation the user uses.

The floating license system is based on a license server. The license server must be network accessible from the active Modelio workstation. Any network-connected workstation can then be used to run Modelio, provided that there are remaining floating licenses at the time of use.
