HP Software Licenses
Software Considerations for HP Hardware
HP 9000 & Integrity Servers
HPUX can be pre-loaded, for test purposes, at a revision of your choice. However, before the system is placed in a live environment (by live, this can mean development, production, live H/A etc.) a license must be purchased. The licenses required vary according to machine type and processor quantity. When purchasing a new machine, you are still required to purchase HPUX and the costs to license a used machine are the same.
Regardless of your intended use, Covenco recommend a license is purchased and your Covenco account manager can advise you on which products have a license requirement and the costs associated.
HP Proliant Servers
In nearly all instances, Covenco supply Laptops and Workstations with a valid Microsoft Windows license. However, with the HP Proliant Servers, we do not supply a license unless specifically requested. It is the client's responsibility to ensure they are adequately certified for the number of servers they are currently using. If you do require additional Windows or Linux licenses we can provide these and please ask your Sales Representative for a quotation.
