Software Licensing

Novell Licensing Program

Licensing gives your organization the legal right to install and use the software as purchased. Acquiring software through the licensing program eliminates the need to buy or store multiple copies of documentation and media.

Novell Licensing

Order Requirements
Quick Summary

Licensing gives your organization the legal right to install and use the software as purchased. Acquiring software through the licensing program eliminates the need to buy or store multiple copies of documentation and media.

Program benefits:

Licensing provides volume cost savings and options such as upgrade protection, master software and volume savings. The time and money savings can be significant. The Volume Licensing Agreement (VLA) provides:

  • A Simple Purchasing Process
    The VLA does not require a signed contract or usage reporting. To purchase products through the VLA, simply place a qualifying order with the Novell License desk. Novell will e-mail most licensed products within 72 hours and will assign a VLA number. The end user will then receive a welcome letter from Novell.
  • Upgrade Protection
    You may offer upgrade protection to the end user on an annual or full-term basis. You may also order products in a much more flexible manner and at a reduced cost over boxed product.

The Contract License Agreement (CLA) provides:

  • Worldwide Availability
    The CLA is signed directly with Novell and gives a company's business divisions, subsidiaries and worldwide affiliates the flexibility to make individual purchasing, reseller and licensing choices using a CLA membership level. Once the initial CLA requirement is met, any of the company's divisions, subsidiaries and affiliates can join the program for as little as $5,000 (suggested retail price). To participate, the divisions and subsidiaries simply submit the CLA membership form found in the Corporate License Agreement.
  • Simple Product Delivery And Installation
    After the order is placed, each company receives the master software and enabler needed to install the products it orders through its CLA. Periodically, Novell will also ship the Novell Software Connection Library (NSCL), a CD library of Novell products.
