Q. JA wrote: What is the licensing method for ZAV? Is licensing per installation of the ZAV software, per software converted to a Virtualized App, or some other method?
A: ZAV is licensed by “instance” – where an instance is just a more encompassing term to take care of the virtual machine scenario where numerous “instances” of a virtualized application might be served up from a single box. If you have ten users that want to run virtualized apps – as many apps as they like – then you need ten licenses or one per user/instance; whether you deliver them fat, serve them up on a network share or stream them down – ten instances will be in play and therefore ten licenses are required.
You can think of it as by user, just more encompassing when termed “instance”.
