A significant criterion for evaluating your investment security?

With the current version 11 HCL Digital Solutions published the first collaboration release under sole direction. Previously, the company had worked with IBM to develop version 10 of Notes and Domino. The IBM development team was subsequently acquired by HCL. The release of Domino V12 is considered an important milestone for enriching application development.

With a new, open communication, with the integration of customer and partner wishes as well as refreshing adherence to deadlines, HCL has recently proven that a lot of value is placed on customer satisfaction.

FAQs – Frequently asked questions about HCL Notes Domino licenses

What is Notes Domino?

HCL Domino Notes is on the one hand an email or messaging platform and on the other hand an application server on which document-based databases (NoSQL database) can run as applications, such as GEDYS IntraWare CRM software.

HCL Domino as a development platform: These application databases can be programmed with Domino Designer on the application server. HCL Domino already brings many functions for data security and access authorization etc. This means that they do not have to be programmed again at great expense.

What is a Client Access License, or CAL for short?

The abbreviation CAL stands for: Client Access License. Traditionally also called HCL Notes license.
This license allows the user authorized access to the messaging services and, depending on the license type, also to work with the Domino application databases.

What does Authorised User mean?

Authorized User = Authorized User is a unit of measurement in which the program is licensed.

An authorized user is a unique person (named user) who is granted access to the program. The program may be installed on any number of computers or servers, and each authorized user may simultaneously access any number of instances of the program.
Licensee must obtain separate, dedicated permissions for each Authorized User who gains access to the Program in any manner, directly or indirectly (e.g., through a multiplexing program, device, or application server).

An Authorized User Permission is valid only for that Authorized User and may not be shared or reassigned, except to permanently transfer the Authorized User Permission to another person.

What is a floating user?

A floating user is a unit of measurement in which the program can be licensed.

A floating user can access a limited or unlimited pool of licenses, depending on the contractually agreed license volume between the customer and HCL.

When a floating user wants to run the application, he requests a license from the appropriate FlexNet central license server at the licensee. If a license is available, the license server allows the application to run.

If no license is available and the licensee has included “Overdraft”=”Overdraft” in the license terms, the license server will run the application and request an overdraft invoice.

What is meant by Processor Value Unit, PVU for short?

Processor Value Unit (PVU) is a unit of measurement in which the program can be licensed.

The number of PVU permissions required is based on the processor technology (defined in the PVU table by processor manufacturer, brand, type and model number under and the number of processors provided to the program.

The HCL further defines a processor for purposes of PVU-based licensing as any processor core (CPU) on a chip. E.G.: For example, a dual-core processor chip has two processor cores.

Ask us for the list for Notes Domnino licenses by PVU.
