Liferay Portal Enterprise Edition (EE)
Díjnyertes termékünket Enterprise Editionként (EE) hozzuk forgalomba, amely a termék vállalatok által tesztelt és finomított változatának előfizetését teszi lehetővé hosszú távú támogatással.
Liferay Portal Enterprise Edition (EE) is a commercial version of our market leading open source portal that provides an alternative for enterprises that face hindrances to adopting open source software. It is offered under a subscription service that further solidifies Liferay's existing long-term support and maintenance offerings.
Unlike subscription options introduced for other open source products, Liferay Portal EE will not mean any changes for the community. Nothing changes except that companies needing long-term support over releases will now get it via a subscription and services contract.
Liferay Portal EE is made available via an Enterprise Subscription and Support contract that also provides business-critical service level agreements up to 365x24x1 hour phone support. In addition, a longer support period will provide stability and ongoing updates to organizations seeking to use a single stable version of the portal over several years. Support is provided by the Liferay engineering team located throughout the globe and is sold on a per server basis.
We simply refer to the "standard", free community version as "Liferay Portal Community Edition" (CE) in order to clearly differentiate between it and the services-oriented Liferay Portal EE. Those who don't need or want to commit to a services contract still have access to the latest features at absolutely no cost and no business risk. We will still continue to develop and innovate as we always have and provide maintenance releases for the most recent version of CE until the next release.
While new "Enterprise" versions of other open source products have meant losses for their community, the team here has worked hard to meet the needs of the enterprise market without sacrificing the needs of the community that make us what we are today.
Liferay Portal Community Edition (CE) is offered at no cost under the business-friendly Lesser GNU Public License (LGPL) v2.1 for use by early adopters and developers in non-critical environments. Liferay Portal CE is community supported and includes the latest in features.
Liferay Portal Enterprise Edition (EE) offers a more hardened, stable version of Liferay Portal CE that guarantees ongoing long-term support with a combined subscription and support package. This caters to organizations seeking to build on top of and maintain one stable version of the product over an extended period of time.
Liferay Portal EE release cycle will be less frequent than the CE. However, each enterprise version will be supported for a number of years with bug fixes backported to your version for the life of your subscription. Please see the EOSL Policy page for a detailed description.
Liferay's professional services team offers training and consulting on the Enterprise Edition to ensure long-term support and stability for our clients.
Liferay Portal CE is available under the Lesser GNU Public License (LGPL) v2.1 at absolutely no cost and no risk.
Liferay Portal EE is made available under a commercial open source license, users benefit from the same high quality features and innovation that results from our nine years of valuable user feedback from the community.
An Enterprise Edition will be released for every Community Edition release, and each Enterprise Edition will be supported for at least four years with backported issue resolutions (bug fixes, security updates, performance enhancements) for your version for the life of your subscription. In addition, Liferay has a five-year end of service life policy for enterprises that need long-term stability.
Currently, Liferay expects to make an EE version available roughly 1-2 months after each CE release.
Yes. We recognize that one of the other advantages of open source is the fact that developers can diagnose problems for themselves. In realizing this, we will continue to provide our source code for both Liferay EE and CE to developers. For Liferay Portal CE, that access will be publicly available. For Liferay Portal EE, that access will be given in conjunction with a subscription.
