Helix Server macOS 6.0/6.1 PowerPC 150.00 125.00 0.00
Concurrent Client Access priced per server license, per client. Base price includes 0 Clients.**
2-9 Users (per user) 250.00 225.00 0.00
10-19 Users (per user) 210.00 185.00 0.00
20-49 Users (per user) 170.00 150.00 0.00
50+ Users (per user) 90.00 80.00 0.00
** Server Pricing Notes:

The base price of Helix Server includes no Client licenses: you must add the per Client price (minimum 2) to the base price to arrive at the total cost. For example: a Helix Server PowerPC enabled for 3 clients = $900.00US ($150 for Server plus $250 for each Client). A Helix Server PowerPC enabled for 20 clients = $3,150.00US ($150 for Server plus $150 for each client).

Our web store automatically calculates the prices for new purchases and upgrades for you based on the following logic:

When calculating the price of Concurrent Client Access, the Client price is based upon the total number of Clients you will have when finished. For example, if you have a current Server licensed for 8 Clients and you wish to add 2 more, you end up with 10 Clients. The new Clients are added at the new license price using the 10-19 Users price level. When upgrading and adding Clients at the same time, the price for the existing Clients is determined by the upgrade price for the total number of Clients you will have, and the price for the new Clients is determined by the new price for the total number of Clients you will have.

If you own more than one Helix Server license, the price breaks apply to each license individually. Thus, if you own one Server with 18 clients and another with 2, neither license qualifies for the 20-49 price.
