NAKIVO Backup & Replication offers the following licensing types:
For VMware, Hyper-V, and Nutanix AHV infrastructures, NAKIVO Backup & Replication can be licensed on a per-socket basis. A license is required for each socket on a host where you plan to back up or replicate VMs. Licenses are required only for the source side of backup and replication, that is, you do not need to license target servers for your replicas or the servers on which you want to recover VMs.
Perpetual licenses are also available for physical machines on a per server or workstation basis and Oracle databases (Enterprise Plus edition only) on a per Oracle database basis.
- Perpetual licenses for physical servers can't be applied for physical workstations and vice versa.
- Physical machines with unsupported OS are treated as physical servers.
One year of Standard Support is included with all perpetual licenses.
Per-workload Subscription Licensing
NAKIVO Backup & Replication can be licensed on a per-workload basis. A workload can be a VMware VM, Microsoft Hyper-V VM, Nutanix AHV VM, a physical machine (1 server or 3 workstations), an Oracle database (Enterprise Plus edition only), or an Amazon EC2 instance that you plan to back up or replicate. Regardless of the type, each item is counted as one workload. Licenses are required only for the source side of backup and replication, that is, you do not need to license target servers for your replicas or the servers on which you want to recover workloads. Subscription licenses include 24/7 Support.
