Prices 2020


The following table outlines the cost of licences for v2.1.1 in 2020. You make a single payment for a licence and have the option of Annual Maintenance.

Licenses are priced according to the type of the licencing organisation (Corporate, Small Business or Academic). Please ask StrataData for advice.

You can choose to have your licence(s) locked to a hardware key ("dongle"), and to be used only in conjunction with the key. You can move the dongle between different computers as required. You can use the licence to attach to a stand-alone database or a shared database on any of the supported database platforms.

If you choose a "floating" configuration you can install the software on as many machines as you want, but the number of licenses in use at any one time is controlled by a designated licence server machine, configured for one or more licences. In some circumstances you can "check out" a floating licence for use while away from the network e.g. at well-site, to be checked back in on return or after a fixed number of days.

It is also possible to mix hardware key based, and floating configurations.

For either type of licence, you can use the database platform of your choice, but we do not supply any database software itself, this must be licensed separately if required. We support the following database platforms: H2, SQL Server, Oracle and PostgreSQL (Microsoft Access can be supported using the obsolete Java 7, and MySQL on request). For standalone single user databases we recommend and supply an H2 database. You can download the H2 software freely if you wish to manage the database yourself. It is possible to run H2 in server mode for small teams, but for larger groups you should consider the alternatives. Microsoft SQL Server and Oracle are licensable products, though SQL Server is available free of charge for small databases such as StrataBugs. PostgreSQL is open source and free to download. MySQL is available to use under the GNU public licence as a free download or on a subscription service.

Prices quoted below are for a single user. Discounts are available for multiple users - please contact us for a quotation.
