License Management

Conference paper


The fact that established license management solutions like FlexNet are not supported in Grid or Cloud environments is one of the main inhibitors for the uptake of Grid or Cloud technology in Industry. In order to resolve the issue the BEinGRID project has initiated a dedicated License Management Technical Cluster. The Cluster has developed design patterns as well as corresponding implementations, which allow the use of currently available technology in Grid or Cloud environments. The solutions are generic and additionally support the transition to pay-per-use scenarios for licensed applications from Independent Software Vendors.
