- Commercial Products
for the professional developer
A developer licence allows a single user to run the Dyalog development environment on a single computer as a tool for application development, a personal productivity tool and a platform for running applications developed using Dyalog.
Every Developer Licence includes DSS membership.
Licence Type 32-bit 64-bit Developer Licence – Microsoft Windows/Linux (cost per annum) £850 £1,275 Developer Licence – macOS (cost per annum) - £1,275 Developer Licence – UNIX (cost per annum) £1,275 £1,875
for the deployment of applications
A Run-Time Licence is necessary (in addition to a Commercial Developer Licence) if:
- Dyalog is used to implement multi-user applications (multi-user applications are defined as applications where the same data is shared by or exchanged between two or more users).
- Dyalog is used as a platform for applications that are distributed outside the organisation that holds the Dyalog Developer Licence.
If Dyalog is used to develop educational tools or applications sold to non-profit environments, then an appropriate low-cost licence can be negotiated with Dyalog Ltd.
A range of different run-time licences are available; contact us if none of these meets your specific needs.
Server/Processor Run-Time Licences
for sharing applications
A Server Run-Time Licence is charged by the number of users while a Processor Run-Time Licence is charged by the number of CPU cores (irrespective of how many cores are used to run the Dyalog-based applications). It includes access to upgrades and support.
Generally, a Server Run-Time Licence is better suited for large or complex applications while Processor Run-Time Licences are more economical for lightweight applications (few CPU resources) that have a large user base.
Server Run-Time Licences 32-bit 64-bit Up to 20 users (cost per annum) £750 £1,125 Up to 50 users (cost per annum) £1,500 £2,250 Up to 100 users (cost per annum) £2,500 £3,750 Up to 250 users (cost per annum) £4,000 £6,000 Up to 500 users (cost per annum) £6,500 £9,750 500 or more users (cost per annum) e-mail Dyalog Ltd Processor Run-Time Licences 32-bit 64-bit per core (cost per annum) £725 £1,075
Royalty-Based Run-Time Licences
for the exploration of new markets
A royalty-based fee is well suited for the exploration of new markets as it reduces the licence investment. It is also beneficial for consultancies and software vendors who need to be up-to-date on Dyalog versions and platforms.
A Royalty-Based Licence costs 2% of all revenue generated by sales, consulting and support of applications using Dyalog and is usually paid periodically in arrears.
This licence covers all required run-time licences for users of services or software delivered by the royalty licence holder. The licence requires a current Commercial Developer Licence and includes access to all Dyalog development environments, upgrades and support.
Shrink-Wrapped/Single-User Run-Time Licences
for off-the-shelf solutions
A Shrink-Wrapped/Single-User Run-Time Licence is not hosted and shared by a set of users; instead, an installation package is distributed to a set of users and each user installs an individual Run Time Licence on their own desktop. This licence is well suited for the one-off distribution of simple applications that do not require upgrades or support.
Shrink-Wrapped Single-User Run-Time Licences 32-bit 64-bit Bundle of 5 licences (one-off cost) £250 £375 Bundle of 10 licences (one-off cost) £475 £715 Bundle of 25 licences (one-off cost) £1,125 £1,690 Bundle of 50 licences (one-off cost) £2,000 £3,000 Bundle of 100 licences (one-off cost) £3,750 £5,625

Dyalog File Server (DFS) Licences
for the fast and secure sharing of data
The Dyalog File Server (DFS) licence allows users to share data over networks through the Dyalog Component File system (DCF). The file server is a client-server system that manages the DCF system on behalf of all the users.
Component files give users the flexibility to create a wide variety of data storage mechanisms and the DFS offers users a variety of advantages within security, performance, operations and recovery.
NOTE: Each Dyalog File Server Licence includes a Commercial Run-Time Licence.
Server DFS Licences 32-bit 64-bit up to 20 users (cost per annum) £1,500 £2,250 up to 50 users (cost per annum) £3,000 £4,500 up to 100 users (cost per annum) £5,000 £7,500 up to 250 users (cost per annum) £8,000 £12,000 up to 500 users (cost per annum) £13,000 £19,500 500 or more users (cost per annum) e-mail Dyalog Ltd Processor DFS Licences 32-bit 64-bit per core (cost per annum) £1,450 £2,150

for the student or educational establishment
Dyalog Ltd offers students the opportunity to learn and use Dyalog at no cost.
An educational licence includes the same features and functionality as a Personal Developer Licence but is restricted solely to educational purposes. Each educational licence holder is required to sign an agreement in which they guarantee that:
- The licence holder is enrolled in an educational programme
- The software will not be copied
- The software will not be handed over to anyone else
- The software will not be used for commercial purposes
In cases where the licence is granted to a University or School, the licence holder is responsible for making their students aware of the conditions.
