Effective June 1, 2018, Ubilogix will no longer offer the Ubiqua PA STD (“node-locked”) license, as this model is being retired in favor of the new Standard subscription.
This action is being taken in order to ensure the greatest level of support, functionality, and consistency for the Ubiqua user-base, as the legacy license model imposed a number of restrictions and requirements that are no longer present in the subscription model.
If you already own a PA STD license, you may proceed using Ubiqua as usual. Software Upgrades and Support extensions will be sold via the Dashboard until December 31, 2018, and will be redeemable until the same date, meaning that the effective cutoff date for node-locked license support will be December 31, 2019. Ubiqua will honor active node-locked licenses until the cutoff date, after which newer software releases will only work with subscription licenses.
Starting July 1, 2018, a license trade-in option will be enabled in the Dashboard, allowing users to exchange their PA STD licenses for Standard subscriptions. On performing this trade-in, you will receive six months of Ubiqua subscription time, in addition to whatever time remained of your “updates and support” validity.
These changes pave the way for upcoming improvements to our license management system. In the near future, we will introduce an additional subscription model targeted at enterprise usage scenarios, which in addition to facilitating Ubiqua usage in group environments will include powerful new features for automation, testing, and validation.
