EVE Licensing Model

EVE-NG Licensing Model

EVE-NG Professional Licensing
EVE Pro License definition

The EVE-NG Licensing is based on the concurrent (parallel) sessions to EVE server. Meaning, if you want 10 users to use EVE at the same time, you must have 10 Licenses.

Important part to know is that each user consumes an individual number of resources.

Example: You have 10 users; every user is running 10 vIOS nodes per lab. Your server resource consumption would be:

10x vIOS= 10 vCPU (threads/virtual cores) x 10 Users=100 vCPU

10x vIOS = 1024MB RAM x10= 100GB RAM

You can calculate the total number of resources you need with EVE Calculator:

EVE Pro Cluster

To increase the number of your server resources and users please take a look at Eve Cluster feature. The cluster feature does not require an additional license. The setup process is well documented and intuitive. For more information please visit:
