Deployment for a single user or in a small environment

'Seat' license

Use this scenario in very small environments, or for the duration of the trial period.

The license is installed on the same computer as PLA 3.0. The computer is connected to a local SQLite database or, if it should be possible for users to collaborate on the same database, the computer can also be connected to a Microsoft SQL database server.

Deployment for concurrent use in a shared environment

'Concurrent use' license

Use this scenario if it should be possible for users to collaborate on the same database and if several computers should share the same license, but the license should not be installed on each computer.

PLA 3.0 is installed on local computers that are connected to a Microsoft SQL database server. The license is installed on a license server.

Deployment in a terminal server environment

'Concurrent use' license

Use this scenario if you want to set up a central PLA 3.0 installation for all PLA 3.0 users
