Features of the Workspace Edition and the Enterprise Management Pack
The following features are enabled by the Workspace Edition and the Enterprise Management Pack:
* Unlimited licenses
** Can also be used without a Workspace Edition license
*** With IGEL OS 11.03.500 or higher, the Custom Partition is included in the Workspace Edition. This is also valid when a device has been updated from a lower version to IGEL OS 11.03.500 or higher. When a device is downgraded to a lower version, the Custom Partition is disabled.
IGEL OS Starter License (New Installation of IGEL OS 11.03.500 or Higher)
Any new installation of IGEL OS 11.03.500 or higher has an initial IGEL OS Starter License. The purpose of the IGEL OS Starter License is to facilitate the rollout of IGEL OS 11. The IGEL OS Starter License is present on all new IGEL devices that come with IGEL OS 11.03.500 or higher and on all devices that are converted by OSC or UD Pocket with IGEL OS 11.03.500 or higher. If you update any pre-existing installation of IGEL OS to IGEL OS 11.03.500 or higher, no IGEL OS Starter License will be added.
The IGEL OS Starter License is valid for 30 days. The counter starts when the device starts with a complete configuration for the first time, i.e. when the Setup Assistant does not open automatically on system startup.
The IGEL OS Starter License enables the following features:
- IGEL OS Base Features
- Universal Management Suite (UMS)
- UMS High Availability (HA)
- IGEL Management Interface (IMI)
- Custom Partition
- IGEL Cloud Gateway (ICG)
- Shared Workplace (SWP)
- Asset Inventory Tracker (AIT)
- The Multi-Media Codec Pack (MMCP) is not included in the IGEL OS Starter License.
- The starter license can not be used as a basis for add-on licenses (see Add-On Licenses).
For testing purposes, you can obtain an evaluation license. The evaluation license has none of the above limitations for the duration of its period of validity. To get it, go to https://www.igel.com/get-started/try-for-free/.
When the IGEL OS Starter License has expired, the device needs a Workspace Edition license and, depending on the required features, an Enterprise Management Pack license.
In addition to the licenses from the Workspace Edition and the Enterprise Management Pack, you should conclude a Maintenance contract with IGEL. This ensures that you can install our regular software updates and that you can use our support service.
