Types of licenses
There are three types of Cycle licenses: node-locked, floating-strict, and trial.
Node-lockedA node-locked license is a non-transferrable license registered to one user on one machine for a specified number of days. Thus, multiple user accounts on the same machine will require multiple licenses.
Floating-strictA floating-strict license is a transferrable license that can be used non-concurrently by any user. By default, floating license are issued for 8 hours but can be issued for "x" number of days as well.
Note: If a company's maximum license quota has been reached and a user requests a floating license, the user will be denied.
