CoCalc - Institutional Licenses

This page gives you an overview about recurring yearly license subscriptions for an organization or institution. The price of a CoCalc license is proportional to the number of projects and the amount of resources allocated for each project. The options presented on this page are possible examples – they are customizable in the online store.
Number of projects: The number of individuals in your organization does not equal the number of projects. You can allocate as many projects as you need. Instead, the license is only valid up to an upper limit of simultaneously running projects, which is closely related to the number of people who are actively using CoCalc at the very same time. Usually, the number of actively running projects is well below the number of people in your organization. In the overview below, that ratio is denoted as "overcommitment". (This is a soft limit -- if you exceed it, your projects are still accessible, but will run without any upgrades.)
Amount of upgrades: minimal upgrades might be okay for day-to-day calculations and editing documents, but you will run into limitations if your requirements are higher. Please contact us if you have questions or need a trial license to test out different options.
Multiple license keys: You can also acquire several license keys for your institution. This means you can partition all possible users into smaller groups, each with their own license key. This is useful if you want to have distinct license keys for different departments, or if you want to have a license key for students and another one for faculty members. Additionally, you can also acquire an additional license for a shorter period of time, to cover periods of increased activity – e.g. final exams – to avoid exhausting the limit of simultaneously running projects.
After purchase: Once you purchase a license key, you become a "license manager". This means you can pass that license key on to others, track their usage, and add other people as license managers.
