The ACA ToolKit: licensing


The ACA ToolKit is available for licensing to end users who wish to modify their systems at the source code level, as well as to our user support and application development partners; we offer developing licenses and run-time licenses for third party transfer of systems developed with the ToolKit, a maintenance and upgrade program, as well as a support and training package.

Inludes an open-ended non-transferable license for a site (up to 5 CPUs of a given architecture); the binary libraries are CPU locked, and made available with the corresponding on-line documentation.
