Licensing

A newly installed StorageOS cluster includes an unregistered Basic licence, which caps usable storage space at 50GB. To utilise more storage space, we offer either a Developer (free with registration - 500GB) licence or an Enterprise (unlimited capacity - see below) licence. This document explains how to upgrade your licence using either the GUI or CLI.

Obtaining a Developer licence via the GUI

You can obtain and apply a Developer licence in the StorageOS web GUI automatically by creating or logging in with a StorageOS account on the StorageOS portal via the licence page of the StorageOS web GUI: http://ADVERTISE_IP:5705/#/licence.

Licence Login

Wait a few seconds for the licence generation process to complete, at which point your licence will be visible. To inspect your licence, click on the “DETAILS” button as follows:

Developer Licence

Applying a previously obtained licence via the GUI

Occasionally we will issue licences directly, e.g. by email or some other off-line method. To apply such keys, via the web GUI, visit http://ADVERTISE_IP:5705/#/licence and click on the tab “ENTER KEY”, then paste the licence key and click on “UPLOAD KEY TO CLUSTER”. Note that you could also view your cluster ID on the same page.

Apply Licence Key

Obtaining a Developer licence via the CLI

Before getting a licence, you need to know the ID of your StorageOS cluster.

This CLI command can print the cluster ID:

storageos licence inspect | jq -r .[].arrayUUID

To obtain a licence for your StorageOS cluster, create a new StorageOS account or log into StorageOS Portal, go to the Licences page and follow the instructions on the page to get the licence key for your cluster. Make sure that you input the correct cluster ID before generating the licence key.

Get Licence

Then copy the licence key to clipboard and apply the licence by the CLI command:

$ echo PASTE-THE-LICENCE-KEY-HERE | storageos licence apply --stdin

Read the licence CLI command reference for further information.
