In Multi-tenant mode, NAKIVO Backup & Replication enables you to create multiple isolated tenants in a single copy of the product. The tenants can represent branch offices/departments in enterprise environments or clients in Cloud Provider environments.
Since tenants are isolated and need to have a limit as to how many licenses each of them can use, NAKIVO Backup & Replication has provided the License Delegation feature. In Multi-tenant mode, a Master Admin (tenant manager) can install one multi-socket license in the product and then assign or delegate a specific number of licenses to each tenant. For example, the Master Admin can install a 20-socket license in the Multi-tenant mode of NAKIVO Backup & Replication, and assign 3 licenses to Tenant A, 2 licenses to Tenant B, and 4 licenses to Tenant C, and let 11 licenses remain unused.
At any moment, the Master Admin can redistribute licenses: revoke any number of licenses from any tenant, which will return them to the Master License Pool, and add licenses to another tenant. The License Delegation feature makes license management simple and manageable in large and distributed environments.
