Save money on purchase, rent or renewal!

For 30 years we have actively accompanied the development, the service and thus also the Notes Domino license management. First as a partner of Lotus Development, then as a long-term IBM partner and currently as HCL Business Partner. With know-how and flexibility we serve the majority of German HCL customers.

An important criterion for evaluating your investment security?

At HCL customer wishes are taken into account.

With the current version 11 HCL Digital Solutions released the first collaboration release under its own management. Previously, the company had worked with IBM to develop version 10 of Notes and Domino. The IBM development team was later taken over by HCL.

With a new, open communication, with the integration of customer and partner wishes as well as refreshing adherence to delivery dates, HCL has recently proven that great importance is attached to customer satisfaction.

FAQs - Frequently asked questions about HCL Notes Domino licenses

What is Notes Domino?

HCL Notes Domino is on the one hand an e-mail or messaging platform and on the other hand an application server on which document-based databases (NoSQL database) can run applications. You can license only messaging or the messaging/groupware services together with the application server (including Notes databases).

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

HCL Domino as development platform: These application databases can be programmed on the application server using Domino Designer. HCL Domino already comes with many functions for data security and access authorization etc. This way they do not have to be programmed again in a complex way.

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

The abbreviation CAL stands for: Client Access Licence. 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 Authorized 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 gets access to the program. The Program may be installed on any number of computers or servers, and any authorized user may simultaneously access any number of instances of the Program.

The Licensee must obtain separate, dedicated permissions for each authorized user who gains access to the Program in any way, directly or indirectly (e.g. via a multiplexing program, device or application server) in any way (e.g. via a multiplexing program, device or application server).

An Authorized User authorization is valid only for that Authorized User and may not be shared or reassigned except to permanently transfer the Authorized User authorization 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 customer and HCL.

If a floating user wants to run the application, he or she requests a license from the corresponding central license server of FlexNet from 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” in the license terms, the license server will let the application run 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 authorizations required is based on the processor technology (defined in the PVU table by processor manufacturer, brand, type and model number at http://www.HCL.com/software/lotus/passportadvantage/pvu_licensing_for_customers.html) and the number of processors provided to the program.

The HCL further defines a processor for PVU based licensing purposes as any processor core (CPU) on a chip. For example, a dual-core processor chip has two processor cores.
Ask us for the list for Notes Domnino licenses by PVU.
