Tiered Device (license type)

Represents a license that allows access to the software on a specific number of named computers that match the hardware tier requirements of the license. These licenses are usually for server applications such as storage products. (Regrettably, as publishers are reluctant to share tier data, these details must be supplied manually based on your individual license agreement.)

Allocation of a license entitlement to each computing device is a requirement. In some cases, these licenses can be transferred from one computer to another, usually by requesting a new license code.
