>OI 9.2 Connector – New Licensing Model


>

Things just keep getting better at Revelation this month. Not only has the cost of new OI WORKS licenses been reduced by a whopping 50% (getting you’re the entire development suite, upgrades including 9.2 and support for 12 months), but a brand new licensing model has been announced for the release of the connectors in OpenInsight 9.2, making the toolset even more attractive to people needing to use D3, U2 or SQL backend databases.

There are three new connectors scheduled for the 9.2 release in a few weeks time. We already have the U2 connector for Universe and Unidata, but the new version will see a connector for TigerLogic’s D3 added to the toolset and another for various flavours of SQL. Please contact me for more details about these connectors.

The new licensing sees the three connectors branded in their own license packs and available in two options. All of the licenses cater for OpenInsight as a front end to one of the three backend databases, but without the ability to use OpenInsight’s Linear Hash database as the back-end. As mentioned at the recent conference, the only linear Hash tables that will operate with the new license file (engine) will be the system tables that OpenInsight itself needs to operate. There will be no ability to create or utilise any other Linear Hash data tables.

The pricing for the new licensing model is therefore set to reflect the loss of the integrated Linear Hash database and to make the OpenInsight toolset very attractive to developers and end-users who wish to use OpenInsight’s GUI, reporting and System Editor tools. The six packages are:

  1. OI For D3 (OI only) Network User License – Desktop Edition
    Maximum of 5-users and it includes one Universal Driver 4.6
    License cost is £35.00 (GBP) per user plus £7.00 per annum.
  2. OI for D3 (OI only) Network User License – Server Edition
    Any number of users and it includes one Universal Driver 4.6 and O4W
    License cost is £40.00 (GBP) per user plus £8.00 per annum.
  3. OI For U2 (OI only) Network User License – Desktop Edition
    Maximum of 5-users and it includes one Universal Driver 4.6
    License cost is £35.00 (GBP) per user plus £7.00 per annum.
  4. OI for U2 (OI only) Network User License – Server Edition
    Any number of users and it includes one Universal Driver 4.6 and O4W
    License cost is £40.00 (GBP) per user plus £8.00 per annum.
  5. OI For SQL (OI only) Network User License – Desktop Edition
    Maximum of 5-users and it includes one Universal Driver 4.6
    License cost is £35.00 (GBP) per user plus £7.00 per annum.
  6. OI for SQL (OI only) Network User License – Server Edition
    Any number of users and it includes one Universal Driver 4.6 and O4W
    License cost is £40.00 (GBP) per user plus £8.00 per annum.

Developers and users who wish to make use of both OpenInsight’s Linear Hash database along with one of the above third party databases can do so through the purchase of a normal OpenInsight Network User License. Obviously, the third party database licenses will need to be purchased through your usual D3 (TigerLogic), U2 (Rocket Software) or SQL license provider.

All of the license information contained herein is subject to change prior to the commercial release of OpenInsight 9.2 so please check with your Revelation representative for updated information (as applicable) at the time of the 9.2 release. The prices shown in this posting are in pounds sterling, they are correct at the time of writing (but subject to change without prior notification) and they are valid for sales within the EMEA region only. Again, please refer to your local Revelation representative for local prices as applicable.
