Need license for a storage node?
Ok, possibly silly question for a very new user.
Do we need a Acronis license for a physical machine (windows based) when it is used only as a secondary storage node for our virtual environment? We have the licenses for the hosts of our vmware environment.
All management components which are not directly responsible for initial backup/recovery functionality do not require a license. This means that Acronis Storage Node or Acronis Management Server (or Acronis PXE Server, etc.) do not require a license. Practically you need licenses for protected resources (machines/hosts) only.
