Kemp Metered Licensing is a capacity-based subscription that provides a flexible approach to licensing of LoadMaster application delivery resources. With Metered Licensing, the aggregate consumption across instances is the billing metric, with no restriction on the number of LoadMaster instances deployed.


Meets the requirements of dynamic business environments with no restrictions on number of instances or where the instances are deployed.


Avoids the licensing cost of deploying multiple overprovisioned instances and the lock-in associated with traditional 'permanent' licenses.


Delivers the ability to move up and down tiers as demands change and to deploy on-demand for short term projects.

Flexibility without limits

With Metered Licensing, customers may move up and down tiers from month to month in line with application delivery demands. This flexibility ensures that application delivery resources are always right-sized and removes the requirement to overprovision resources to accommodate seasonal peaks. As Metered Licensing is based on throughput, customers may deploy LoadMaster instances without having to purchase unit licenses which delivers the flexibility required in dynamic environments.

Metered Licensing for Enterprises

Enterprises face a dynamic application delivery environment where seasonal variations, new application delivery methods and hybrid cloud place varying demands on resources. Metered Licensing removes traditional licensing restrictions (such as capacity and platform) to allow for delivery of right-sized capacity on any platform for any period of time. This total flexibility in how and where application delivery resources are provided simplifies capacity planning and removes complexity from cloud migration and transition. Organizations that encounter seasonal spikes in demand can avoid having to provision for the worst-case scenarios.

Metered Licensing for Service Providers

With no restriction on the number of customer instances deployed, Metered Licensing provides a scalable and profitable way to create new value-added services and to enhance existing services. It also allows service providers to align costs with revenue and to avoid purchasing hardware solutions that charge a premium for multi-tenancy features and do not scale in line with revenues.
