Starting with version 4.1, VisualSVN Server is also available under a special Enterprise Multinode license, that is suggested for users of the Multisite Repository Replication (VDFS) feature.
Why use Enterprise Multinode license?
Enterprise Multinode license aims to simplify the multisite VisualSVN Server deployment and maintenance processes. The license may be installed on a set of machines constituting a single VDFS replication cluster. That is, you get an option to purchase a single license covering each server instance within your distributed system.
How much does a VisualSVN Server Enterprise Multinode license cost?
The price for VisualSVN Server Enterprise license depends on the maximum numbers of users and VDFS repositories allowed by the license. Although Enterprise Multinode license is perpetual, it has an associated maintenance period. Future upgrades to newer VisualSVN Server versions are free within a 12-months maintenance period after initial purchase, or upon the license renewal. The prices are given below:
|Enterprise Multinode license||New license||Renewal|
|50 users + 50 VDFS repositories||$3,000.00||$1,500.00|
|100 users + 100 VDFS repositories||$4,500.00||$2,250.00|
|250 users + 250 VDFS repositories||$6,250.00||$3,125.00|
|500 users + 500 VDFS repositories||$7,500.00||$3,750.00|
|1000 users + 1000 VDFS repositories||$10,800.00||$5,400.00|
|2000 users + 2000 VDFS repositories||$12,500.00||$6,250.00|
|Unlimited users + Unlimited VDFS repositories||$15,000.00||$7,500.00|
How is the number of users calculated?
The number of users is calculated independently on each separate node. For instance, the Enterprise Multinode license of size 50 can cover multiple nodes with no more than 50 users on each separate node. The same applies to the number of VDFS repositories. The license of size 50 can cover multiple nodes with no more than 50 VDFS repositories on each separate node.
Apart from selecting the number of users, the purchasing procedure is largely the same as it would be for a regular Enterprise license.
Purchasing procedure is as follows:
- Navigate to the Licensing page.
- Select 50 or more users for Enterprise license.
- Click Buy.
- Select the radio button All nodes in the same VDFS cluster.
- Click Next and follow the prompts to complete your purchase.
