Now that you’ve completed your model’s interface, you want to share it with other people. isee systems offers different options
for publishing your model with its interface, each described further in subsections below:
Note that you can also share your model or CLD alone using either the isee Player or the isee Exchange.
Publish on isee systems’ servers
We offer both free and paid options on the isee Exchange. By agreeing
to either the Published Interface License (interfaces) or the Creative Commons License (models and CLDs), you can publish to the isee Exchange at no
cost. In this case, your published interface or model will be included in the directory of interfaces and models available at the isee Exchange. When
you publish an interface, the Published Interface License only applies to the interface. The underlying model is not accessible to anyone from the
isee Exchange. If you choose to upload your model, in addition to or instead of an interface, the Creative Commons License applies to the model you
Except for multiplayer games, the free option runs all models within the local client’s browser, so it is very scalable.
Multiplayer games run on our server so are size limited* and cannot support as many simultaneous instances.
Paid versions are described in detail here.
Publishing on your own server
For a fee, you can license the isee Exchange software to host interfaces yourself. These are server-side offerings that require
some degree of expertise to set up and maintain. The isee Exchange software comes configured to run on 64-bit (x64) Debian Linux
running Apache and PostgreSQL. The options are:
In-House Sims: Licensed per model per month, this allows you to provide users access to simulations at the web location
of your choice, either internal- or external-facing. The published interfaces will run in the users’ browsers. This is the least
complicated option in terms of setting up and configuring and is appropriate when you have only a small number of models you want
to provide access to. The interfaces are not isee-branded. You configure who can access them through your own network configuration.
A minimum subscription of six months is required.
Stella Server Unlimited: For an annual fee, an unlimited number of models can be published on your own server under one
domain that is either internal- or external-facing. User access must be configured using your network infrastructure. Data
collection is not included. Support is billed on a per incident basis.
Stella Server Enterprise: For an annual fee, the isee Exchange server software can be replicated on your own server
with all features available (see “Publish on isee systems’ servers” above) for use within your organization. The license
includes both a public-facing site (internal to your network or on the web) that can publish unlimited models and an internal
developer site not connected to the Internet. The public-facing site is limited to running on ten cores (more cores can be
added for an additional cost) and the developer site is limited to two cores. Support is billed on a per incident basis.
Publish to Desktop or Mobile
isee systems offers two ways to share your model interfaces on the desktop or on mobile devices:
Create a Stella App: For a fixed price per model, isee systems will bundle your interface and model into a
code-signed app, complete with a code-signed installer, for the platform of your choice: desktop (Windows and/or
Macintosh), iOS, or Android. This service includes the creation of up to four code-signed installers for the same
model per year, for up to three years.
Distribute the isee Runtime: The isee Runtime provides a cost-effective way to distribute multiple models
to desktop users. Starting at $250 per user, with generous volume discounts, the isee Runtime includes maintenance
updates for one year, ensuring the users of your models stay current. After the first year, maintenance is renewable
