Licensing and Pricing
Ventus is available under a yearly subscription license.
Annual Subscription License
The full-service subscription option enables Ventus for one year, including technical support and all program updates. This option provides cost-effective access to the latest version of Ventus, while simplifying budgeting for software costs.
For customers outside the USA, visit the Ventus Partners page to find International Sales, Support, and Training in your region.
The node-locked license type grants the right to use the software on one (1) computer. This is sometimes referred to as a "fixed" or "single-computer" license.
The floating license type allows multiple computers on a network to share a Ventus license. Each floating license of Ventus can be used by one (1) computer at a time. When a user closes Ventus, that floating license becomes available to other users on the network. You can purchase additional copies of the Ventus floating license to enable simultaneous access by multiple computers. This is sometimes referred to as a "network" or "concurrent use" license.
If you need to work with the software without a network connection, you can request a short-term node-locked license from firstname.lastname@example.org, please request the license with at least 2 business days of lead time to ensure we can provide the support you need.
Maintenance must be purchased annually after the first year to keep your version up-to-date and to receive technical support. Maintenance must be paid continuously to remain in effect.
Volume Licensing Discounts
Save money on multiple licenses! Save 50% on each additional software license of equal or lesser value. Licenses must be purchased at the same time to qualify for the discount.
NOTE: Ventus and Ventus orders can be combined for volume licensing.
Free licenses are available for academic, non-commercial use. To apply for an academic license, you or a representative from your organization must fill out the Academic License Application Form.
