Software Management

To assist in usage-compliance, maximize value from our software-purchases, minimize administrative overhead, and enable our Researchers, we prefer floating-licenses ("concurrent licenses"). These floating licenses allow a small group of users to run the application, from a large pool of installed/potential users.

We currently have four installed key-servers, used to permit/deny these floating applications:

  • Sassafras K2 keyserver, running on bismarck (Adobe products, and others)
  • flexlm keyserver, running on Lancer (Maya)
  • flexlm keyserver, running on Lancer (USB hardware-keyed, needed for SolidWorks)
  • IBM LUM, running on Lancer (for CATIA)
