ggRock Licensing

This article describes general licensing information as well as license restrictions within ggRock.

Basic Licensing Concepts

There are two options specific to ggRock:

  • Paid ggRock subscription. Recurring monthly or annual subscription to Tier 2 support, providing access to our Tier 2 support staff and developers for advanced troubleshooting

  • Pioneer privileges. Both ggLeap and ggRock started out with a Pioneer monetization model, allowing centers to pay a certain sum up-front to get support as well as a perpetual discount for all future subscription costs. It has: Silver, Gold and Platinum tiers. ggLeap Pioneers are grandfathered into ggRock, but not the other way around

Licensing Restrictions

  • Each ggRock license is for a dedicated amount of Machines for one location. You can have several servers, as well as a failover server all using the same license - just make sure that the grand total of Machines and VMs does not exceed the license limit

  • Your ggRock server must have an active internet connection to function. There is a 72 hours period of Offline operability in case of any issues with ggCircuit backend infrastructure or other segments of the Internet

  • If your internet connection goes down, it must be restored within 72 hours or ggRock functionality will be reduced. Currently running Machines will continue to operate, but new Machines won't boot

  • If your ggRock license expires, product functionality will cease until the license is re-activated, much in the same way as when you will run out of 72 hours
