You can choose from two types of licenses:
- A named-user license, which is for one person only and may not be shared with another user. It can be used on multiple machines and does not require a license server.
- A floating license, which may be shared among any number of users. This type of license has a set number of seats that can be checked out simultaneously from a license server. You can have multiple floating licenses on the same server to accommodate the total number of seats you need.
When purchasing licenses for a large organization, you will likely want floating licenses rather than named-user licenses.
