Three kinds of license can be involved in running analyses on the CLC Server
- A license for the server software itself. This is needed for running analyses via the server. The license will allow a certain number of open sessions. This refers to the number of active, individual log-ins from server clients such as Workbenches, the Command Line Tools, or the web interface to the server. The number of sessions is part of the agreement with QIAGEN when you purchase a license. The Installation section provides information about how to obtain and deploy the license for the server.
- A license for the Workbench software. The Workbench is used to launch analyses on the server and to view the results. Find the user manuals and deployment manual for the Workbenches at http://www.qiagenbioinformatics.com/support/manuals/.
- A network license if you will be submitting analyses to grid nodes. This is explained in detail in Licensing of grid workers.
