Buying a syslog-ng Store Box (SSB) license permits you to perform the following:
Deploy one instance of the syslog-ng Store Box appliance as a central log collector server.
The syslog-ng Store Box license also allows you to download the syslog-ng Premium Edition application (including the syslog-ng Agent for Windows application) and install it on hosts within your organization (on any supported platform) to use it as a log collector agent (client) for syslog-ng Store Box. You cannot redistribute the application to third parties.
The syslog-ng Store Box license determines the number of individual hosts (also called log source hosts) that can send log messages to SSB.
License grants and legal restrictions are fully described in the Software Transaction, License and End User License Agreements.

In any other scenario — for example, if you want to offer services provided by syslog-ng Store Box to your customers in an OEM or a Managed Service Provider (MSP) scenario — you have to negotiate the exact terms and conditions with One Identity.
