Novell is changing its main channel corporate licensing model to give customers a different buying option.

From 1 March, Novell is axing its Corporate Licensing Agreement (CLA) and is adding a new option that allows customers to buy products on a per-named-user or per-device basis.

The Master Licensing Agreements (MLA) and Volume Licensing Agreement (VLA) will remain in place, said Novell.

The MLA sees pricing set by Novell when dealing with large customers, and the VLA and CLA are used by the channel when selling to customers.

The elimination of the CLA is designed to streamline the buying process, said Novell.

Novell is also introducing new product bundles that combine product upgrades and technical support.
