Important Notice - CloudBacko v2 VMWare/Hyper-V licensing changes

Postby johnny.wong » Fri Feb 19, 2016 9:51 am

As of CloudBacko V2, the number of modules required for VMware/Hyper-v servers will be calculated on the number of CPU sockets per host rather than per host with CloudBacko v1.

For customers using v1, please note that if you decide to upgrade to v2 CloudBacko you may need to make additional module purchases. The additional cost will depend on the number of CPU socket on the host machine.

An example of this is:

Backup of ESXi host which has 2 CPU sockets

CloudBacko Pro v1
1x CBP $39
1X VMWare Module $99

CloudBacko Pro V2
1x CBP $49
2x VMWare Module $298

On same setup.
CloudBacko 2 would require 2 VMware module due to number of sockets.

With upgrade from V1 the cost would be

CloudBacko Pro V2
1x CBP $Nil
1x VMWare Module $Nil (Already owned)
1x VMWare Module $149

Customer can continue to use CloudBacko v1.

Customers using CloudBacko Pro to backup on Free version of ESXi would not require additional licenses. ESXi Free will continue to be included as part of CloudBacko basic package.
