The floating trusted storage license model is recommended for most purchased licenses. Floating licenses allow multiple users on different computers to access the pool of licenses. The license manager is locked to the computer running the license manager using Flexera's Trusted Storage mechanism. The license manager can run on Windows, Linux and macOS, and licenses can be accessed from other computers in the local network. The license can occasionally be securely transferred between computers, in cases where the original license manager computer is decommissioned.
