Veritas Storage and Server Management High Availability products on UNIX (Solaris, HP-UX, and AIX) are typically licensed and priced on a per-tiered-server meter, regardless of the number of domains on the server. Starting with UxRT 5.0, UxRT products are sold on a per-tiered-server pricing meter or a per-tiered-processor pricing meter.
Licenses for UNIX products are priced in the following ways:
Per tiered server meter/pricing
Veritas Storage and Server Management, High Availability products on UNIX are generally licensed and priced per server. The per-server price depends on the server price tier that a server is assigned to. A server can be assigned to one of 13 server tiers (Tier 1A through Tier 4D). You must pay the per-server price for each server running Storage and Server Management, High Availability products. This pricing meter applies to all versions of Veritas Storage and Server Management, High Availability products on UNIX (Solaris, HP-UX, and AIX).
Per tiered processor meter/pricing (UxRT 5.x only)
Starting with UxRT 5.0, Veritas Storage, and Server Management, High Availability products on UNIX can be licensed and priced per tiered processor. The per-tiered-processor price depends on the processor price tier that a processor is assigned to. A processor can be assigned to one of three processor tiers (Processor Tier 1, 2, or 3). You must pay the per-tiered-processor price for every active processor running Storage and Server Management, High Availability products.
Storage and Server Automation, High Availability for Linux is licensed on a per-processor basis, regardless of the number of cores on the processor. A multicore chip is considered one processor. For example, each dual-core AMD Opteron processor running Storage Foundation for Linux requires one processor license.
Storage and Server Automation High Availability products running on the Microsoft Windows operating system are priced per server, according to the installed Windows edition, for example, Windows NT or Windows 2000. The pricing is not based on the server's processor capacity.
