You can either purchase a license based on a subscription or as a single payment for unlimited runtime. In case, you decide for a subscription, your license can be extended automatically, if you wish to. You do not need to worry about having a valid license. If you opt against automatic extension, you will be notified by email early enough before your license ends. On manual license extensions, we will credit the remaining value to your purchase subtracting a handling fee. For testing, you have the possibility to get a free license with some restrictions (see below).
Additionally, you have the possibility to choose the additional “backup” feature. This will automatically zip all your data on the server each day at midnight, storing them separately for each weekday. This will provide you a backup for the last 7 days.
The complete license handling is done by the Windows setup application. On the first installation of a server, you will be guided directly to the dialog for choosing your license.
