Does anyone know what the registration limit is for Interbase installs ? I ask because I’m considering installing Interbase on an EC2 instance, and I need to know how many times I would be able to upgrade the instance before I have to buy another Server and extra user licenses. Is it three installs like Rad Studio ?

I think the developers license is 2 installs, but like RAD Studio you can ask
for that limit to be bumped up if you have hit the limit.

I don't care about the developer installs, it's about the Server 2017 installs. I'm guessing that it's three but it would be nice to know for sure. I know you can ask for a registration bump, but I also know from my own personal experience that sometimes Embarcadero says no to a reg bump and you end up having to buy the product again. I'm not averse to having to purchase another Server licence and the associated extra user licences. It would just be nice to know what I have to work with so I can plan how much I need to increase my EC2 capacity at each jump before I run out of available registrations.

The registration limit for some versions is 3, others 5. The only way to
know for sure is to create a support case and ask.

No to registration bumps has been a very, very rare thing in the past.
