Important Pricing & Licensing Information

Trial Edition licenses are available for a 90-day trial at no charge.

Enterprise Edition licenses are priced for 1 IBM i serial number, 1 partition. The 2nd and 3rd partitions licensed are available at a 50% discount of the price of the 1st partition license. The 4th partition license and higher are available at a 66% discount off the price of the 1st license. If you have multiple systems and partitions or any other special licensing requests, please request a quote from CNX.

All Enterprise Edition licenses are for unlimited developers and unlimited users. Size, processor group and role of system partitions is not considered in pricing, with the exception of high-availability (or mirrored) systems. High availability systems receive an additional 50% discount from the non-high availability license price.

When licensing individual groups, group 0 is always required as a prerequisite to other groups. Group 0 may also be licensed by itself.

Commercial Edition licenses are custom quoted upon request.

Perpetual license pricing includes CNX’s standard maintenance and support for the first year of the license.  After the first year, an annual maintenance contract is required in order to receive maintenance and support (including software updates) or use Nitro App Builder (as detailed in the license agreement).

Subscription pricing includes CNX’s standard maintenance and support and the ability to use Nitro App Builder. No separate maintenance contract is required.

There are no fees for transferring a subscription license from one system or partition to another. However, if you require frequent transfers, you must agree to receive keys automatically from the CNX licensing server.

Software license pricing is subject to change without notice. However, you may purchase up to two years of monthly subscriptions in advance to lock in current pricing for that time period.

Maintenance contract pricing is calculated as a percentage of CNX’s software license pricing in effect at the time of each annual renewal, without reference to past pricing, incentives, or discounts.

All Valence software and services are provided under the applicable CNX software license and services terms. For full software license and service terms, please review the version of the CNX Developer License Agreement made available on the download page for the software.
