License Cost and Support
SSIS PowerPack License is per Server. Which means each server requires its own license key. For developers we provide Free Visual Studio only license (Read next section).
Staring from Oct 1st 2016 we offer two licensing models (Perpetual and Annual Subscription). Read the below section to learn more about the differences between Perpetual and Subscription License types.
Perpetual license is one time purchase and the license key never expires. If you buy the perpetual license then first year support and upgrades will be included with your purchase. After the first year if you wish to continue getting support and Bug Fixes/New features, then you can purchase additional years of the support plan (optional). Click here to see Perpetual Price table.
Annual Subscription License
Annual subscription is a pay as you go type of plan. Its usually a less expensive than the Perpetual license. Support and upgrades are included in the subscription license plan. Click here to see Subscription Price table.
If you are still not sure which license type to choose, please review comparison table below:

Annual Subscription License
One time purchase Yearly renewal (Recurring) After first year support plan can be renewed (Optional) Support/Upgrades are always included with the purchase License never expires License expires after 1 year if not renewed
- Each year new license key(s) sent as long as subscription is renewed.
- To avoid manual work we apply newly generated key automatically by contacting license server.
- You may also apply new key manually incase you have internet issue.
- Unless subscription is cancelled explicitly, by default subscription is renewed automatically each year.
All customers with valid Support agreement plan are entitled to receive Premium support. We have following 4 methods of Support. We usually respond your inquiry/issue within 1 hour if you are in same time zone (We are in Eastern Time zone – New York Time, USA).

SSIS PowerPack does not enforce license check when you are developing/testing packages inside Visual Studio (also known as SSDT or BIDS). However if you wish to run SSIS Packages outside Visual Studio then you will need license. Below Matrix Shows when license is needed:
Method License Needed? Package running inside Visual Studio **No** Running via DTExec Command line Yes Running via SQL Agent or Other Scheduler Yes Running via DTExecUI.exe Yes Running via C#/VB.net API call Yes
Each download (Paid or Trial) comes with 30-days fully functional Trial. Which means you can develop/test packages inside Visual Studio / SQL Agent Jobs / Command line without any limitation. During trial phase you can also deploy packages to Development/QA/Production server for full testing. After trial expires your packages will continue to work only inside Visual Studio. Once trial expires you can not test them via SQL Agent or Command line without purchasing a valid license key. For some reason you need more time to try our software after trial is expired then you can request Trial extension key (From License Manager UI).
License for Cluster Nodes
Each machine requires its own license in Cluster Setup. Which means Active/Passive or Active/Active both setup will require license for each node in your cluster because every node is treated as a separate machine.
