Not sure what Server Category is right for you?

Server Categories are used to gauge the amount of PCL processing that JetPCL will perform. The price for using JetPCL is based on the Server Category but it does not increase linearly. The per-server price for JetPCL goes down as the Server Category increases. In other words, the price for a Server Category 5 license is typically only 45-85% more, not 500% more!

Each JetPCL installation counts as 1 point toward the Server Category value. If you are installing JetPCL on 3 server machines within your enterprise in one geographic location then, the Server Category is 3.

Each separate geographic location that will be using JetPCL processing, also counts as 1 point toward the Server Category value. If you have multiple buildings all located in one primary city this is counted as 1 location. However if, for example, you have a large IT department in Texas that will do the IT processing for your New York and Seattle offices, this would count as 3 geographic locations.

Whichever is larger, your total number of installations or the total geographic locations is your Server Category.

However, if your application requires more concurrent JetPCL processing, such as a web based service applications, a higher Server Category might be desirable, though not required. JetPCL is designed to wait for processing resources to become available as needed. Server Category 1 allows for up to 3 concurrent processes, Server Category 3 allows for up to 9 concurrent processes, Server Category 5 allows for up to 25 concurrent processes, and Server Category 10 allows for 100 concurrent processes.

As an example, if your enterprise will use JetPCL on one machine to process for one location and processing can be done sequentially, then Server Category 1 will be fine. If your company will need to install JetPCL on 2 or 3 machines or do processing for both the east coast and west cost locations, then Server Category 3 will be correct. If you will be running JetPCL on 4 or 5 machines in different locations throughout your enterprise, then you need a Category 5 license. Or, if you need 6 or more installations, then you need Category 10. If you will be running JetPCL on one powerful server as part of a processing intensive application then either Category 3 or 5 would be your best choice, but Category 1 would be acceptable too.

Please call or e-mail if you still have questions!
