"I saw that... do not understand license...looks like sales trial...assume"

Well, actually you will get a clear license text when running the
installer. It seems you get a license[1] valid until termination by either
- you with a 20 day notice period
- by Pathscale if you're in breach of contract.
No trial.

So I'm glad they generously offer this.

will remain in effect until terminated (i) by Customer with or without
cause, upon twenty (20) days written notice to Pathscale, or (ii) by

material breach of this License and will have failed to cure such breach
within thirty (30) days of receipt of written notice thereof from Pathscale.
