How to estimate the required number of users for my license?
You should choose an appropriate license, which size is sufficient for the number of users who access VisualSVN Server in your environment. You can find out the current number of active users on the Licensing tab in the Properties dialog in VisualSVN Server Manager. See KB148: How VisualSVN Server calculates the number of active users for additional details.
All VisualSVN Server licenses are of a fixed size. Therefore, in borderline situations, you have to plan ahead for the possible growth in the number of users. It is significant to note that the only way to add more users to an existing license is a paid upgrade to a license of bigger size. See the upgrade rules and prices.
User limits are evaluated independently and separately for each server if you have several VisualSVN Server instances or use the Multisite Repository Replication (VDFS) feature. In other words, every server instance should be equipped with a license whose size is sufficient for the number of users who are going to access that particular server instance.
How many licenses do I need if I have multiple instances of VisualSVN Server?
Regular Essential and Enterprise licenses can only be used on a single VisualSVN Server instance, so you should have a separate license per every instance. Also there is an Enterprise Multinode license that can be used on all servers in a single «VDFS replication cluster» — a group of servers connected to each other by VDFS replication links.
Please note that as an exception, additional non-production instances of VisualSVN Server can share the same Enterprise license. Such instances can be used with a solely purpose of testing software updates and configuration changes without presenting a risk to the production environment.
How much does a VisualSVN Server Essential license cost?
The price for VisualSVN Server Essential license depends on the maximum numbers of users (and VDFS repositories, if applicable) allowed by the license. The license is perpetual (with 12 months of free upgrades), but you need to renew your license in order to have access to newer VisualSVN Server versions when the 12-months maintenance period ends.

How much does a VisualSVN Server Enterprise Multinode license cost?
You can use a single Enterprise Multinode license key on all nodes of the same VDFS cluster. The size of Enterprise Multinode license should be sufficient for the maximum number of users that connect to the single node in your cluster. Compared with other VisualSVN Server license types, the number of distributed VDFS repositories for Enterprise Multinode licenses is always unlimited.
The Enterprise Multinode license is perpetual (with 12 months of free upgrades), but you need to renew your license in order to have access to all newer VisualSVN Server versions.
|Enterprise Multinode license||New license||Renewal|

What are the limitations on the number of repositories?
The number of regular FSFS repositories is always unlimited for all available VisualSVN Server licenses.
However, there are some limitations related to the number of available distributed VDFS repositories if you are using the Multisite Repository Replication feature. If you are using a regular Essential or Enterprise license, the number of distributed repositories is limited according to the size of the license. If you are using an Enterprise Multinode license, the number of VDFS repositories is always unlimited, regardless of the license size.
For further details please consider the KB220: VisualSVN Server 5.2 Licensing Overview article.
What maintenance costs are associated with the Essential and Enterprise licenses?
There is a 12-months maintenance period associated with each Essential and Enterprise license. Active maintenance gives you free access to all newer VisualSVN Server versions. When the maintenance period ends, updates to newer versions (including bug fix and security releases) become unavailable to you.
You are eligible to renew your maintenance with a 50% discount from the full license price. To qualify for the 50% discounted renewal pricing the maintenance must be renewed no later than 90 days after its expiration.
Maintenance renewals always commence from the expiration of your active maintenance period, regardless of when the maintenance renewal has been purchased. Therefore, it is convenient and recommended to renew your license before its expiration.
