HealthBot Licensing

HealthBot Licensing Overview

Juniper Networks introduced the Juniper Flex Software Subscription Licensing model to provide an efficient way for customers and partners to manage licenses for hardware and software features. Contrail HealthBot uses this licensing model.

To use a licensed feature, you need to purchase and activate a license that corresponds to that feature and deploy that license so that it can be utilized by the software during normal operation. You can administer and manage the licenses through the Juniper Agile Licensing Portal. The portal provides an intuitive, task-based user interface that provides full lifecycle management of licenses.

HealthBot supports the standalone mode for deploying licenses. Standalone mode allows you to activate a license on a software instance. Such a license can only be used by the instance on which it is activated. Sharing a license with multiple instances is not permissible.

HealthBot has three service levels:

HealthBot Standard (Free)

This is the free model solution and is available for customers that have a valid support contract. No license is required.

HealthBot Advanced

This is the first tier of the fee-based model solution and requires that you purchase a HealthBot Advanced feature license. You may purchase additional device-based feature licenses depending on your business needs.

HealthBot Premium

This is the second tier of the fee-based model solution and requires that you purchase a HealthBot Premium feature license. You may purchase additional device-based feature licenses depending on your business needs.

The following table shows a comparison between the HealthBot service models:

The following table lists the available HealthBot device feature licenses:

Note:

In HealthBot releases prior to 3.1.0, the feature licenses were called HBOT-BASE, HBOT-G1, and HBOT-G2. License purchases made in previous versions will be honored in HealthBot 3.1.0. New license purchases as of 3.1.0 can not be applied to previous versions of HealthBot. See your local account manager for details.

For the HealthBot 3.1.0 release, enforcement of device license counts is based on the total number of all C1-C4 licenses installed minus the total number of licenses actually used. This enforcement model may change in future releases of HealthBot.
