Important Licensing Information


License prices above are 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 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.  


Subscription pricing includes support, updates and new versions of the software. No separate annual maintenance payments are 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.  


Prices are subject to change without notice. However, you may purchase up to two years of monthly subscription in advance to lock in current pricing for that time period.  


All Valence software and services are provided under the terms of the applicable CNX software license and services terms. For full license and service terms, please review the applicable CNX agreement. Support does not cover: (1) development work for your code or apps; (2) resolving problems caused by misuse, neglect or abuse of Valence; (3) resolving problems external to Valence, including end user network, firewall, systems, hardware, third party software, or data; or (4) resolving problems caused by modifications to Valence not made by CNX. CNX reserves the right to charge for time spent diagnosing or remedying problems not covered by support.
