Licensing: Networker and CloudBoost

In MQ for Networker i see "Backup to public cloud with CloudBoost is only available as capacity licensing model." But in documentation i can't see this restriction.

Is it possible to work with public clouds with CloudBoost and Networker with traditional licensing model ?

Re: Licensing: Networker and CloudBoost

Hello SirReindeer,

CloudBoost licensing is based around site-cache required and if you are going to setup CloudBoost within AWS or Azure. The "capacity licensing model" you are referring to, I believe, refers to the storage node requirements.

Hope this helps, but please let me know if you'd like additional details.

Thanks,

Re: Licensing: Networker and CloudBoost

Thnx. Yes, I'm talking about Networker licensing.

Can we use Networker with traditional licensing model and CloudBoost ?

If "not", it would be good to add this restriction to Networker documentation.

If "yes", what does the description in MQ mean when calculating the quota for Networker.

Re: Licensing: Networker and CloudBoost

Hi SirReindeer

NetWorker Traditional requires the purchase of licenses for each CloudBoost virtual appliance (none included). It requires the minimum (1TB) NetWorker Disk Backup Option (AFTD) license, and Networker Storage Node Windows/Linux license. Only a single AFTD license is required to enable multiple CloudBoost targets. Please reach out to your Account Manager for additional questions around licensing.


Thanks,

Praveen
