Upgrading Our Service: Transitioning to Amazon Web Services

As part of Reprise Software’s ongoing commitment to providing top-tier service and experiences, we are excited to announce a significant upgrade to our hosting infrastructure. In our constant quest for improvement, we have decided to migrate our hosted services to Amazon Web Services (AWS), a global leader in cloud-based solutions.


Why AWS?

We’re continually striving to enhance our services, ensuring we offer you the most reliable and efficient solutions. This constant evolution is why we’ve decided to transition to Amazon Web Services (AWS).

Over the last year, we’ve been meticulously exploring various hosting options that can bolster our commitment to providing consistent service.  After comprehensive research, we are confident that migrating to AWS will allow us to meet this objective more effectively. AWS provides us with enhanced stability, innovative features, and a robust architecture, all of which will help us serve you better.


We Want to Make Your Experience Easier

The move to AWS is not just about improving our service reliability – it’s also about enhancing your overall experience with Reprise Software. The real benefit here lies in how this change will enhance your interaction with us. AWS provides access to a range of advanced tools and services that significantly improve the speed, quality, and efficiency of our offerings.


What Does This Mean for You?

With AWS, our services can adapt and grow with your needs. This ensures a steady, uninterrupted service, even during high-demand periods.

One of the key advantages of AWS is its robust global infrastructure. This enables us to provide a more reliable service with less downtime and increased uptime for your crucial applications, offering you peace of mind.


Committed to the Highest Security With AWS

As part of our ongoing improvements, we’re migrating our RLM Cloud and Hosted Activation to Amazon Web Services (AWS), a global leader in cloud-based solutions. We understand that changes like these might raise questions about data security, and we want to reassure you that your data’s safety remains our highest priority.

AWS is renowned for its robust security measures that align with global standards for data security and privacy. The platform operates on a shared responsibility model, meaning AWS secures the infrastructure while we secure our operations within it. This approach reduces the operational burden while ensuring top-notch security. Furthermore, AWS is committed to continuous security innovation and developing key security-related technologies in tandem with the community.


What’s Next?

We are excited about this change and the numerous benefits it will bring to our services and our customers. We greatly appreciate your continued trust and support as we make this important transition.

Should you have any questions or need further information about this migration, please do not hesitate to contact us. We are here to help.

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.
