Neues Lizenzmodell für Lotus Notes 8.5.1 & kostenloser Designer

 6 Oktober 2009 18:39:09
Heute hat Ed Brill verkündet, das sich mit 8.5.1. auch das Lizenzmodell ändert!

Es wird einfacher. Es gibt nur noch zwei Zugriffslizenzen. Enterprise CAL und Messaging CAL. Welchen Client (Web, Traveler oder Notes Client) der User verwendet ist egal. Ich habe einmal die entscheidenen Punkte Fett markiert:

"... So today, we introduce two Client Access Licenses (CALs) for Domino -- an Enterprise CAL and a Messaging CAL.  Both CALs feature the most liberating offer we can make -- a user with a CAL can use the Notes client, iNotes/Domino Web Access, or Lotus Notes Traveler -- all under a single license.  They both also include the entitlements for Lotus Symphony, Lotus Quickr Entry, and Lotus Sametime Entry.  The Enterprise CAL adds two additional ingredients -- the right to use the now-free Domino Designer on a Domino Server (for deployment and support purposes), and an entitlement to IBM's VPN client, Lotus Mobile Connect.  Of course the Enterprise CAL and Messaging CAL differ in the same way that the current "...for collaboration" and "...for messaging" products do -- the messaging CAL is restricted to using email and calendar services on the Domino server, while the Enterprise CAL can use -- and now build and deploy -- custom Domino applications. ..."

Dies ist ein richtiger und guter Schritt.
