Support Hours (when applicable) – 9am to 5pm Pacific Time | * A node is a single installation of an operating system running on a machine (virtual or physical) that will utilize an ActiveState distribution of an open source language. A node license is required any time a distribution is used to run completed scripts or applications that are executed outside of a developer’s workstation.
Key Enterprise Benefits
Learn more about the value of the Enterprise Tier of the ActiveState Platform.
ActiveState open source language distributions can be packaged for a growing list of platforms and operating systems, including:
- Windows, Mac and most major Linux vendors
- Big iron servers, including AIX and Solaris
ActiveState open source language distributions are typically licensed per node. If you’re running multiple nodes in the cloud or on an ESXi server where you can scale out nodes on demand, ask about volume pricing options that entitle you to run multiple nodes, as required.
Indemnification/Legal Risk Reduction
Incorporating third party libraries in your application can expose you to trademark, copyright and patent infringement liability. ActiveState’s Enterprise Tier license provides protection, giving you peace of mind.
“Builds Made to Order”
If you require packages or platforms (such as AWS or Docker) not currently supported by the ActiveState Platform, or if you’d prefer ActiveState to create a custom build, an open source language distribution specific to your needs, please contact us to discuss your requirements.
Frequently Asked Questions
If maintenance, security, support, or compliance issues are essential to your business, our Enterprise offer is likely most appropriate. Please contact our experts to discuss your needs or let us give you a live demonstration.
If you are using an ActiveState distribution to run scripts outside of a developer’s workstation, i.e. testing, staging or production environments, then commercial licensing is required starting at the Team tier.
If you are a developer using an ActiveState distribution only on your own workstation, the Free tier is appropriate.
A node is a single installation of an operating system running on a machine (virtual or physical) that will utilize an ActiveState language distribution. A paid license is required “beyond development use”, which is any time a distribution is used to run completed scripts or applications that are executed outside of a developer’s workstation. For more information, see the ActiveState Community Edition License Agreement.
A project on the ActiveState Platform is configuration of a specific version of Perl, Python or Tcl together with an arbitrary set of dependencies. As a Platform user, you can create your own custom projects that contain just the specific dependencies you need. All projects at the Free tier are public projects, which mean they are available to other Platform users. Private projects are available at Coder tier and above. Access to private projects is controlled by the project owner.
Support and maintenance are available at the Enterprise tier for ActivePython 3.6 to 3.8, ActivePython 2.7 and ActivePerl 5.16 to 5.18.
Access (with no maintenance) to these versions or ActivePython 3.x to 3.5, ActivePython 2.4 to 2.6 and ActivePerl 5.8 to 5.14, is available at the Team tier.
