Security is a big concern for customers and with HP iLO we help alleviate some of those worries.

What type of iLO license should I buy?

    
Single License Server

The single license server provides one entitlement which is redeemed for a single key for installation.

Single licenses are delivered physically or electronically. In case of physical delivery, the entitlement certificate is shipped to you as a physical deliverable. In case of electronic delivery, the entitlement certificate is emailed to you.

The single license pack is appropriate for customers who:

  • Need iLO licenses whenever individual ProLiant servers are purchased
  • Purchase a few ProLiant servers at a time
  • Own a few existing ProLiant servers for which the software is needed
  • Can only accept separate license entitlement certificates based on their current business operations and IT administration workloads
Electronic License Delivery

HP offers electronic license-to-use (E-LTU) options for software products through most points of sale. At the time you place your order with HP, you must provide an e-mail address to which an electronic receipt is sent by HP. Within the receipt is a link where you access your license entitlement and complete the redemption process for your license activation keys for the number of licenses you ordered.

Electronic license delivery is appropriate for customers who:

  • Need very fast order fulfillment
  • Prefer no physical packaging materials to dispose of
  • Prefer to manage their software assets in digital form
  • Otherwise qualify for the flexible quantity kit criteria below
Flexible Quantity License

Flexible Quantity Licenses (FQLs) let you order multiple target licenses. A single software entitlement is shipped to you, redeemed for a single key that activates licensed features on multiple iLO targets - the same number of iLO targets from the order. For example, if an order is placed for a quantity of 10 iLO Advanced flexible quantity licenses, a single entitlement is shipped providing a license key that enables the use of iLO Advanced on 10 target servers.

The flexible quantity license is appropriate for customers who:

  • Are unable to take advantage of electronic license delivery
  • Need to do a one-time purchase of iLO Licenses for their current ProLiant installed base
  • Purchase quantities of new ProLiant servers and need an equivalent number of software licenses to match the amount of servers purchased
  • Want to curtail the number of license activation keys in use
  • Want to minimize physical deliverables: need a single license key per quantity of licenses purchased at any given time
Pay as you go Volume Licensing (AKA)

Hassle free volume-licensing program, based on Activation Key Agreement (AKA) with one master key across your entire installed base to eliminate maintenance of multiple keys, handled on a contract basis.

AKA is appropriate for customers who:

  • Plan a volume purchase of iLO over time, typically in conjunction with new ProLiant servers that are acquired on a regular basis
  • Desire simple software licensing: one key per product for all licenses subsequently purchased over time
  • Want the least amount of physical deliverables: there are no deliverables associated with the tracking licenses
  • Want to add iLO licenses as a line item to standard ProLiant configurations purchased regularly from HP or HP partners or wanting to add iLO to existing ProLiant sales contracts wth HP.
