Re: What kind of licenses do I need to integrate AVE with DD?


Correct, you will only need a  DDBoost license for this solution to work, as long as you have enough capacity to store metadata on the AVE.

As discussed by Jeff in this thread the size of the metadata can vary depending on the type of data being backed up. I would recommend you contact your local EMC team who will be able to review the current AVE capacity and make sure there is enough available capacity to hold the metadata for the 17TBs worth of backups to be stored on the Data Domain.

I hope that helps?
