Commercial Licensing with OpenNMS
OpenNMS is an open source network management application platform that is published under the GNU General Public License (GPL).
This license gives end users a number of rights, but it does require that any changes made to the code (i.e. the creation of a derivative work) must also be licensed under the GPL.
While the OpenNMS Group encourages the adoption of open source software, some organizations, due to trade secrets, patents or other proprietary reasons, may not be able to use 100% open source software in their environment.
The “Powered by OpenNMS” program allows them to purchase the right to use OpenNMS under a more traditional license.
Using OpenNMS as a network management application platform can save months if not years of time versus building a system from scratch. We can even help by adding needed features to OpenNMS to help make things easier, but note that all our work will be released to the community part of OpenNMS.

What Our Clients Say

In six hours, we had OpenNMS running with all the functionality that it had taken us three years to develop with Openview NNM. This was a rude but happy awakening. - Dale Meyerhoffer, Senior Network Analyst, Hershey Medical CenterRead More
I was the only IT person at the office, but with OpenNMS, it was easy to keep track of everything on the network, including our snow and ice-covered traffic light system. If there had been a problem, OpenNMS would have let me know. - John Jennery, City of Grapevine, TexasRead More
