A variety of license options meets the requirements of any user, no matter what the size of the organization or the computer* setup:
Named Single User License (NSL)
One physical person designated to COMSOL by name can run a session of the software. This designated user may be replaced on a temporary or permanent basis provided that only one individual is designated to COMSOL as the user at any given time. A Named Single User License may not be used or accessed over a network.
CPU-Locked Single User License (CPU)
You can install the software on one computer and different users can take turns using COMSOL on that computer, one session at a time. A CPU-Locked Single User License may not be used or accessed over a network.
Floating Network License (FNL)
Licensed per concurrent user, you can install the software on as many machines on your network as you want. COMSOL can run on local computers with the network being used only for license authentication, or alternatively you can run COMSOL on a remote computer over your network. Cluster computing is supported on Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003, Windows HPC Server 2008, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5. Cloud computing is supported on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud™ (Amazon EC2™).
Class Kit License (CKL)
As many as 30 students can simultaneously use the software for a class over a school network. Two teaching assistants can also use it to prepare class materials. The professor in charge of the class can use the software to prepare class materials and for research.
