Licensing Cost Estimator for HCL Notes and Domino

Has your company licensed Notes and Domino in the past?

HCL uses a Fixed Term Licenses model. This is similar to Microsoft Azure, Google Workspace, Adobe and many other software vendors. In this model, your company has right to use Domino, Notes and other HCL products, such as Volt, for the one-year license period, but does not give you a perpetual license (you are not allowed to use the product after the end of the licensed period).

RightSize offers two types of fixed term licenses for Notes and Domino: CCB and CCX.

Complete Collaboration Business (CCB) licenses are needed for authorized users. They may use any client, any protocol and any server capacity for mail and applications. The CCB license includes a long list of companion products such as Verse and Nomad, which are defined in the license document. Contractual and temp employees need CCB licenses. "Guests" access is included at no cost. A guest is typically a visitor to your website, which may post content like blog entries with a max ACL of author when anonymous, or reader access with "write public documents" when logged in.

Complete Collaboration eXternal (CCX) are authorized users in your address book who don't work at your company such as suppliers or customers or web visitors who need full functionality. CCX can use full features of Notes and Domino at "editor" ACL but can't have mail files.

In addition to CCB and CCX for Notes and Domino, HCL has licenses for Volt, Sametime Premium and other products which are not included in the CCB/CCX licenses.

Quantity of CCB licenses: List price of $97.32 per person per year
Quantity of CCX licenses: List price of $18.72 per person per year

HCL is moving to a Fixed Term License model. This is similar to Microsoft Azure, Google Workspace, Adobe and many other software vendors. In this model, your company has right to use Domino, Notes and other HCL products, such as Volt, for the one-year license period, but does not give you a perpetual license (you are not allowed to use the product after the end of the licensed period).

If your company purchased perpetual licenses under the Passport Advantage program and you are current with your Subscription & Support (S&S) status, you may choose to continue with annual maintenance licenses for continued updates and support or you may choose to convert to fixed term licenses.

Is your Subscription & Support current for your Domino and Notes licenses?

If you would like a quote for S&S renewal, complete the contact form on the next page and we will pull your entitlement history from HCL. It takes a few days for us to get this report. Once we have this, we will contact you so we can adjust any CAL or PVU quantities to match your anticipated counts and provide a quote.

Note that HCL provides pricing protection to business partners, which we greatly appreciate. As such, your first renewal with RightSize will be quoted at list price even though we may be able to discount in succeeding years. If you are getting a competitive quote just to comply with company requirements, we can share list prices quickly without waiting for your entitlement history. If this is your situation or if you are considering switching business partners, please contact us directly at 424-201-5030 or HCL.Sales@rightsize.com.

Catch up licensing

If your company is late renewing your Subscription & Support (S&S) but you were current sometime in the past 18 months, you may be eligible for the Catch up program. HCL's Catch up requires that you pay retroactively for missing periods plus a reinstatement payment. RightSize would be happy to work with you on Catch up. This requires HCL to pull your entitlement history which takes a few days. Once we have this, we will contact you so we can adjust any CAL or PVU quantities to match your anticipated counts and provide a quote.

Restart Program

HCL's Restart Program does not consider how many licenses you had in the past, only how many fixed term licenses you need now. The perpetual licenses you purchased in the past are still yours, but they are limited to the version "shipping" when you stopped paying maintenance and can no longer be upgraded. The Restart Program provides a lower price to make this transition more affordable.
