BSCW server licenses

Licenses for Operating an In-house BSCW Server

own serverOrbiTeam offers licenses for operating your own in-house BSCW server. The BSCW server software is installed and operated on your servers (or your provider).
A BSCW server license includes the right of use, all version upgrades and bug fixes as well as continuous technical support (BSCW Professional only) during the license period.

BSCW is available in two flavours: BSCW Free and BSCW Professional.

BSCW Free licenses are provided free of charge for schools and universities (educational purposes only), private persons and small organisations (max. 5 users). No technical support is provided.

BSCW Professional offers the full range of BSCW functions (in contrast to BSCW Free). The license fees are based on the maximum number of users that can be registered on the BSCW server (i.e. named users). The number of licensed users can be increased at any time during the license period.
