The lack of license management schemes in distributed environments is becoming a major obstacle for the commercial adoption of Grid or Cloud infrastructures. In this paper, we present a complete license management architecture that enables a pay-per-use license management which can be deployed together with an on-demand computing scenario. Our architecture enables authenticated access to a remote license server. The license management architecture can be deployed in any distributed environment. It supports existing client/server based software license management tools (for example FlexNet Publisher). This allows an easy transition from current software license business models which support only a local license management towards business models which support license management in distributed environments.
