The BASIS License Redundancy Feature

The uninterrupted processing of business transactions in the event of a computer crash or during a localized, limited power outage can be assured to those customers who have:

1. A well thought out data protection plan initiated by the VAR
2. An activated "BASIS License Redundancy Feature"
3. An active SAM Plan

1. Developing a Strong Data Protection Plan
There are as many different variations of data protection as there are reasons to make use of them. Since each company will require a different level of security to address their particular needs, it is wise to perform a simulated crash at each of the primary, secondary and tertiary sites to determine first hand whether all of your standby needs are addressed and met by your particular implementation.

2. Activating the BASIS Licence Redundancy Feature:
BASIS License Redundancy requires that the license manager (BLM) be loaded on any three (3) machines running over the same TCP/IP network. These three (3) machines may be running the same operating system, or three different operating systems. As long as any two (2) machines continue to run in the event of a crash, the license manager will continue to perform and deliver licenses for BBx use.

To achieve a good level of data security on three (3) identically configured machines, they would need to be:
  • connected to each other on the same robust TCP/IP network

  • geographically dispersed in different locations (and may be using operating system port forwarding to reduce the amount of program coding)

  • programmed to write data concurrently to each of the primary, secondary and tertiary file systems (machines)

3. Renewing Your SAM Plan
The BASIS License Redundancy Feature is available only to those customers who have (or purchase) an active SAM Plan. Redundancy is ordered by special request through Descore sales staff.


What to Order:
One (1) Basis multi-user license specially configured for License Redundancy would provide your customer with the luxury of uninterrupted processing of data, providing any two (2) machines continue to run at all times, however, you should ensure that live data and programs are copied to each computer on your LAN/WAN on a regular basis to prevent lengthy downtimes.
Geographical Dispersion:
Placing each of the three network nodes in three different geographical locations would minimize the risk of a power interruption curtailing your data processing.
Uninterrupted Power Supply:
The use of a UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply) or a backup power generator at each location, or in-house depending on the need, will further enhance your ability to continue data processing through most calamites. Keep in mind, that the BASIS License Redundancy Feature does not protect against interruptions in your LAN/WAN connection or internet service.

You may wish to consider setting up two (or more) servers in the primary office, along with three (or more) off-site servers. Another alternative would be to implement a "back-up license" at an off-site location. Please call Descore Sales at 905-470-4033, or send an email to for pricing and details.
