How Redgate tools are licensed

This is a guide to Redgate’s licensing models. 

User based licensing

Most Redgate tools are licensed per user.  This means that if you are the owner of a Redgate license you are entitled to install that license on as many machines as you need, so if you are planning to use the license at work, on a laptop at home and on a VM you can install on all three by logging in with your Redgate ID each time you activate on a new machine.

If more than one person needs to use the license you will need to purchase an additional license for each user.

Server and capacity based licensing

A few of our tools are licensed per server, such as SQL Monitor and SQL Backup Pro, or by capacity, such as SQL Clone and Data Masker for SQL Server.

To see how each product is licensed, take a look at our Software Editions page.

In the case of the SQL Toolbelt, where there's a mixture of licenses, you would need to purchase additional licenses of the server tools if the number of servers is larger than the number of users. We offer discounts when you buy multiple licenses. Contact us at for more information.
