I am pleased to announce that the Evaluation Service is now LIVE!
If you are an InterSystems End User or an InterSystems Partner and you want to try the latest version of IRIS with all its enterprise features (mirroring, ECP and sharding), and you want it NOW, this is for you.
The Evaluation Service allows you to get your hands on an IRIS kit and a very powerful IRIS license for evaluation purposes in less than 1 minute. No paperwork. No need to talk to anyone. Fully self-service.
This service is only for IRIS and IRIS for Health and it is very easy to use. There are two ways to get to the service:
- WRC - If you are an end user or a partner, you can access the service using our Worldwide Response Center service at http://wrc.intersystems.com
- Partner Hub - If you are a partner, you can access the service using the Partner Hub at http://partnerhub.intersystems.com
To access the service using WRC you must have a WRC user account. If you need help to setup your WRC user account, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and they will be glad to help you.
Once you have access to WRC, just click on Online Distributions. Then click on the Evaluations button.
If you are an InterSystems Partner you can access the evaluation service from WRC or the Partner Hub. You will see an Evaluation Service button on your main dashboard.
Here is a screenshot of the service under WRC:
It is now so very easy! Just pick a product, pick a platform, pick a version and click on the big green button! The evaluation service will send you the license key to use with the IRIS product, platform and version you picked and will start the download of the kit.
What is the Size of the Evaluation License?
The license enables 256 cores and has all its enterprise features enabled (Mirroring, ECP and Sharding). It also has NLP, Interoperability and Analytics. In summary, everything is enabled and the license lasts for 35 days.
What happens after the license expires?
After 35 days, the license will expire. You can come back to the service and get a new one! Simple like that. Your account manager will get a notification every time you request a new license or renew an existing one. They will be offering help to support your evaluation.
Where is IRIS 2019.1.1?
Yes, IRIS 2019.1.1 allows in place upgrades of Caché and Ensemble and can be used with IRIS API Management. IRIS and IRIS for Health 2019.1.1 is not available on the Evaluation Service just yet because 2019.1.1 is still in Preview. You can get preview software for free from the WRC Preview right now, as well as an evaluation license key without using the Evaluation Service.
But when IRIS 2019.1.1 becomes Generally Available, the Evaluation Service will be the single easiest and fastest place to get a powerful evaluation license.
