Simplified License Servers for RLM

Cloud-Based License Management

RLM Cloud is a fully hosted, cloud-based solution designed to streamline the management of your customers’ RLM license servers.

Easy

RLM Cloud offers an intuitive interface that allows you to provision and manage customers' license servers, and install and manage their licenses - all from your browser. No need to install license server software on your customers' systems.

All-in-one

RLM Cloud provides a comprehensive platform to issue and serve licenses for your customers. Your customers no longer need to worry about installing or managing a license server with RLM Cloud. They simply install your application, add the licenses, and are ready to go.

Compatible

Unlike other License Managers, RLM Cloud allows you to perform all these tasks without modifying the existing RLM API calls in your application. This ensures seamless integration and minimal disruption to your operations.

customer purchased.

RLM and RLM
Activation Pro

What’s the difference?

Reprise License Manager (RLM)

Software License Manager

RLM provides runtime checking that verifies that your application is licensed to run and that the current usage of your application is within the limits you have ser every time your application runs.

As a Software publisher, you integrate RLM into your product, and RLM keeps track at runtime of who is using the licenses of your software.

RLM can do this entirely within the client library (linked into your application), or, more commonly, your application makes a request of the RLM Lincese Server to check out a license.

The lincese server runs either on your customers network, or in the cloud if you are using our RLMCloud™ service.

RLM provides runtime checking that verifies that your application is licensed to run and that the current usage of your application is within the limits you have ser every time your application runs.

RLM Activation Pro

Software Activation Manager

Activation Pro is
used once when your customer purchases your software in order to retrieve the license which is specific to that customer.

Software Activation’s purpose in life is to get the licenses for your product to your customers with a minimum of fuss.

Activation Pro also has a server component wich we call the activation server.

Your application contacts the activation server and supplies a short text activation key, and in exchange, the activation server returns the license which enables your product.

Generally, this is done once, right after your customer purchases your software, not every time your software is invoked.
