Working in multi-user mode (floating license)
 
An IZYTRONIQ floating license model means defining a maximum number of users that are permitted to access the same database simultaneously. Hence, the IZYTRONIQ floating license model differs from the workstation-based license model, in which the workstation license is coupled with the hardware. In the concurrent user license model, the software itself can be installed on an infinite number of computers. A central server manages the licenses, which are also called floating licenses or network licenses. The server registers the number of currently issued licenses and grants to each eligible user the right to access the database in principle. But once all licenses have been issued, an additional, competing user must wait until another user ends a session, freeing up a license to be used elsewhere.
 
In other words, the software for a floating license with five concurrent users can be used by more than five users, but no more than five users can access the software simultaneously at any time.
