License Subscriptions

License Subscriptions are designed to meet the needs of our enterprise customers with a large number of transactions or installations that makes the use of SaaS Rule Engine too expensive. By purchasing OpenRules license subscriptions you receive access to OpenRules Development and Run-Time licenses. These licenses allow you to execute your OpenRules-based decision services an unlimited number of times. License subscriptions provide you with immediate access to quick fixes and new releases. Available for Windows, Linux, and Mac.

1. Development Licenses 

One development license provides 1 Authorized User (a named person) with an installation of OpenRules Decision Manager software and a run-time license:

Included Items Subscription Term Price
Item 01. One Installation of OpenRules Decision Manager software
Item 02. One run-time license
3 months $999.00
12 months $3,995.00
    • Subscription is renewed automatically until cancelled

One development license covers one installation of OpenRules® Decision Manager software that can be used by an authorized user during the license period to create and execute multiple custom decision services. This subscription also includes one run-time license described below.  To use more than 1 decision services in your production environment you need to purchase additional run-time licenses.

2. Run-Time Licenses

One run-time license allows you to use one deployed copy of a decision service developed using OpenRules® Decision Manager for a license period. You need to have a run-time license for every decision service  in your production environment whether this service is being used on-cloud or on-premise.  The run-time licenses are priced based on the number of licenses you purchase at the same time:

Number of Run-Time Licenses Cost per License for the period of 12 months
2-10 $500.00
11-25 $400.00
26-50 $300.00
51-100 $200.00
Above 100 Contact OpenRules to get a special price based on the actual number of required licenses

For example, if your service is deployed as an AWS Lambda function, one license covers one running instance of this function. You need to have a separate run-time license for each instance running at the same time in parallel.  For example, if your AWS concurrency limit is 3, you need to have 3 run-time licenses.

Benefits of License Subscription. With a license subscription you may execute your OpenRules-based services an unlimited number of times within the subscription period.
