Why use the Unit-based server license?
The unit-based server license is perpetual, and you use one license per instance; server, virtual machine or node. The pricing is based on the number of instances instead of on the number of end-users, and allows you to generate an unlimited amount of PDFs. There’s a one-time fee for the use of our production servers. The use of our non-production servers is mandatory, which is why you can purchase it with a 50% discount (e.g. testing, development, Q&A, UAT, BA or DR).
Release from “copyleft” AGPL license requirements
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.
Professional support iText development team
This license grants you access to our professional support and maintenance teams. In fact, it’s mandatory to use our support team in the first year. Afterwards, you can renew annually at 20% of the prevailing list price. 95% of our customers renew, because of the high value of our professional support.
Use Case: Unit Based Server
An airline has a PDF form generation solution on their internal servers. Customers enter their information on the airline's web portal and iText uses that data and combines it with data from the airline's database and template rules to create a PDF, such as a boarding pass, for the customer on the fly.
When purchasing a commercial license, you also gain access to our professional support and maintenance teams.
Mandatory for the first year
After that first year, you can renew your subscription annually at 20% of the prevailing list price. 95% of our customers choose to renew their support program subscriptions, which is a testament to its high quality and added value.
