multiple licenses of an Embarcadero tool, or has wanted to quickly ramp up a
new project has probably encountered one or more of these tool management
- Someone on the team spends a lot of time
manually tracking and moving tool licenses
- Projects have been delayed because it
takes so long to get the right tools licensed and deployed
- Teams spend a lot of time installing/uninstalling
versions of their tools
- It takes weeks or even months to get new
releases of tools to tech teams
- Locked down desktops make it difficult
to get teams the tools they need
- Has lean processes and/or use
contractors who assemble new teams rapidly
- At best, these tool management
challenges frustrate; at worst projects are impacted with costly delays
or over spending. Database and application development tools are needed
on demand but because of performance requirements, a SaaS model is not

Benefits for tool users,
license administrators, software asset managers
Embarcadero ToolCloud simplifies licensing,
reduces overhead, and controls access to products by centralizing and
standardizing how tools are delivered. Database professionals and
application developers get on-demand access to the tools when they need them.
Centralized License Management
At the core, the ToolCloud provides license

for nearly a decade. It provides a single location inside your firewallto
handle all license inventory, with reporting and usage tracking. Centralized
License Management gives teams the ability to:
- Standardize and simplify. Reduce license
complexity with one vendor and one place to administer all tool licenses
- Control access for compliance, security,
- Save hundreds of hours tracking tool
- Optimize license configurations and
purchases to and save thousands by avoiding "over-buying"
On-demand Software Delivery with InstantOn
Embarcadero tools managed by the ToolCloud
can be installed on a user’s desktop or they can be delivered and run with
InstantOn, Embarcadero’s application virtualization technology.
This enables tools to be packaged into a single file that runs without
installation. The tool runs on the desktop, locally and ‘full power’ but
does not change system areas of the OS or registry. With on-demand tool
delivery, teams can:
- Quickly access and install tools to
adapt more rapidly to changing projects, business demands
- Run multiple versions side by side, and
adapt toolsets by project and platform to respond faster to changing
- Save hundreds of dollars and hours by
avoiding costly installs and uninstalls of multiple product versions
- Empower users to access the tools they
need from anywhere on the network & locked-down desktops
- Save hundreds of hours by not having to
keep desktops up-to-date with the proper tool configurations

Should I buy a
networked named user licence or concurrent user licence?

permitted to use the product anywhere within the network.

individuals to use the product, but only up to the number of concurrent licenses
purchased. Once that limit is exceeded, anyone else trying to access the
software is denied access. A concurrent licence requires a licence server in
this instance it has to be the ELS (Embarcadero License Server).
