    callas License Server

    Dynamic deployment of callas products and technology on
    cloud-based infrastructure as a web service.

    Addresses the needs of a modern, cloud-based world.
    Conceived with cloud infrastructure in mind, it introduces a more
    dynamic way of licensing processing capacity based on peak performance.

    The callas License Server fits in callas software's long-standing tradition
    to provide a maximum of flexibility when it comes to the use and
    deployment of its products and technology.
    As such, callas products have been available for many years on
    Windows, Mac, Linux, Oracle/Sun Solaris and IBM AIX and its technology
    can be embedded through hot folders, command-line interface (CLI) and
    a software development kit (SDK).

    With the callas License Server, callas software adapts that philosophy
    to the current needs of the market and enabling a straightforward
    deployment of callas products and technology on infrastructure as a
    service environment like Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure or others.


    Activation-based licensing vs. License Server-based licensing

    All callas software customers have up to now used activation-based licensing,
    which binds the license to the machine it is running on.
    From now on, License Server-based licensing will also allow
    callas software products to run without being activated locally,
    rather checking with the License Server whether any licenses are available.
    This allows (virtual) machines to be brought online without
    having to go through the manual activation process.

    Benefits

    Full flexibility: Auto-Scalable & Pay-per-Use Environments
    • Runs without being activated locally
    • The License Server will check whether or not any licenses are available.
      This allows (virtual) machines to be brought online without having
      to go through the manual activation process.


    • Caters with performance for peak production
    • The callas License Server makes models such as
      ‘load on demand’ or ‘capacity on demand’ possible,
      a more dynamic way of licensing based on peak performance.


    • How does it work?
    • Pay-per-use environment.
      You either buy process cartridges and/or credit cartridges
      that are loaded in the callas License Server.

      One Process Cartridge enables you to run one callas process,
      processing one file at a time.
      Consequently, Eight Process Cartridges will enable you to
      run 8 processes in parallel, no matter whether this is
      on one or more (virtual) machines.

      Process Cartridges would typically be used to run the daily production.
      To cater for peak production, the Credit Cartridges provide access to
      processing time, regardless of the number of parallel processes and/or
      (virtual) machines.

      For instance, a 50 000 Credit Cartridge handles
      50 000 seconds of processing time.
      In an auto-scalable environment, this would allow for an unlimited
      number of server instances to be fired up, processing files until all
      credits are used, providing customers access to unprecedented
      PDF processing power.

      For pure pay-per-use cases, customers could of course choose
      to just use Credit Cartridges.
      They allow to be fired up for an unlimited number of server instances,
      processing files until all credits are used, providing customers access
      to unprecedented PDF processing power.




    Key Features

    • Auto-scalable solution

    • Access to cloud infrastructure on-demand

    • Possibility to load with Process Cartridges for daily production

    • Possibility to load with Credit Cartridges for
      unprecedented PDF processing power

    • Initially compatible with pdfToolbox only



    Availability

    The callas License Server will be available in the beginning of April, 2019.
    Five licenses of callas pdfToolbox Desktop are included.

    The callas License Server is initially compatible with pdfToolbox only;
    that’s why there are five licenses of pdfToolbox Desktop included
    with the purchase of License Server.
    The callas License Server will be extended to other callas products later.
