WaterWare: The Product

Pricing options     (version: June 2016)

For a (multi processor) server or cluster, single location/institution, unlimited clients/users unlimited application size/dimensions (open ended, non-transferable binary license), including basic installation, training, and initalsupport for application building and customization for a one year project starting with FAT.
