Altair AllocatorTM Capabilities
Altair Allocator is designed to address the license sharing needs of multi-sited organizations.
License UtilizationDevelopment teams are often spread across multiple geographies and data centers. Coupled with the increased complexity in today’s development that drive up the cost of expensive software licenses such as those used in EDA, organizations have an increasing need to maximize the sharing of a common software pool in order to manage their total spend. While sharing a common pool of licenses can achieve the overall cost objectives, the migration from site specific
licenses to shared software resources can present multi-sited organizations with challenges.
Allocator works in conjunction with license monitoring
and workload scheduling solutions such as Altair Monitor and Accelerator. It keeps track of total number of licenses in the pool, those in use, and allocates the available licenses across geographic sites or business units via comprehensive resource management policies.
Operational EfficiencyAnother facet of sharing software resources across multiple sites is having clear visibility on how licenses are being utilized across the organization along with the ability to prioritize and allocate licenses based on organizational needs.
Allocator provides organizations with the necessary software license policy management features to adjust the allocation of software licenses in order to maximize the utilization of their software assets.
