*Production environments includes any machine that serves up production or “live” applications or runs automated processes for those production applications that are used by staff, customers, partners, consumers. Non-production use includes individual IT or developers’ desktops, development servers, QA/test servers, staging servers, and back-up servers, or automated processes for those servers.

Business Editions licenses are per language, per version, per server. For instance, if you need ActivePerl 5.10 and 5.18 (both considered legacy) and intend to use the software on 3 servers, this constitutes six instances; 5.10 on servers 1, 2, 3, and 5.18 on servers 1, 2, 3. Although non-production use is permitted for free using our latest Community Edition versions, use of legacy versions on both non-production and production machines requires Business Edition licensing. Depending on the number of installations you need, you may prefer a site license via Enterprise Edition. Please contact us for further clarification should you have any questions.
