Instance-based

Instance-based License

The instance-based license is one of iText’s commercial licenses and is a subscription license for companies that install their PDF applications on hosted platforms (e.g. Amazon Cloud, Azure, etc.) or in cases where instance counts cannot be made. This license is available for Java and .NET.

BENEFITS

Why use Instance-based License?

The pricing for this license is based on the specific number of instances that your company installs iText on. Please note that we distribute one license per instance and that there are valuable discounts available for companies that require multiple instances.

Possible to install on a hosted platform

Our instance-based licenses allow you to install iText 7 on a hosted platform. The instance count will depend on the scope of your requirements.

You don't have to share your application and/or source code (closed-source)

This license has significant benefits when compared to AGPL, because it releases you from “copyleft” AGPL license requirements, as well as from the requirements to not change the PDF Producer line in the document’s properties. It offers indemnification in the event of IP (intellectual property) or patent infringement and grants you access to iText’s professional and dedicated support team.

Using the iText DITO Editor to develop our report templates is a huge time saver. I can now do in just 45 minutes what would have taken over two weeks to do in code using other PDF libraries!

We chose iText over other open source solutions because it was really quick and easy to develop our application using iText. That's thanks to the guides and documentation available on the iText website, and the many examples on developer communities like Stack Overflow.
