Difference Between WORKGOUP and ONE License - WebGIS products

Hi,

 

What is the difference between workgoup and one license? Under what circumstances would one chooce either of the licenses? 

 

There is a similar question about Apollo whose answer goes as follows:

APOLLO has single licenses for all tiers of ERDAS APOLLO that are available in the following configurations:

• 4-Core

• 8-Core

• 12-Core

• 16-Core

We also have two bundles that are called ONE and WORKGROUP as defined below:

ONE – Consists of an 8 core + a TFB 4 core (TFB = Test/Failover/Backup). This is the recommended minimum package over any “single” license configuration to give users an extra license for testing any upgrades prior to moving their production environment.

WORKGROUP – Consists of a 16 core + a TFB 8 core.

 

..but i can't make sense of this answer with regard to WebGIS products.

Hi Elvon,

 

ONE - is limited to a single IP address of the server. You cannot run distributed tasks with this license.

  • However you can request a special LOB license type for maximum of 5 LOB servers

 

WORKGROUP - is limited to a geographical address (server farm must reside in a single physical location)

You can:

  • Run up to 5 server farms for different tasks
    • Each farm can run again in LOB scenario, up to max 5 servers = totalling 25 servers as the maximum
    • All servers must belong to the same organization and must be located at the same postal address
  • LOB licenses must be again requested separately
  • Secondary usages (test, failover, development) can also be considered as a different tasks.

 

There is no limit on cores or amount of MapServers with either license.

 

Hope this helps.

Hi Jan,

 

Kindly elaborate on the distributed tasks part. What are some of the examples/scenarios?

 

As my example, an organization has one server (single IP) and could be having 2 LOB servers and wants the geospatial portal where different users from around the world can log in and do stuff like visualizing, editing, printing, downloading shapefiles etc. Do they need ONE or WORKGROUP License?

Hi Elvon,

 

My understanding of that politics is that with ONE license you are not allowed to run different tasks per LOB cluster, such as setting up specific WebMap services on one cluster, use another one to update cache, for internal training, etc... Each LOB cluster should just serve as an available resources for the same task running or requested on the main server.

As for your example, it's enough to have the license ONE.
