If you'er not going to use a Hyper-V agent, then you'd need the following application agents:

2 x RAWS agents for the Web server and application server (assuming no databases on, or application like Exchange, SharePoint etc);

3 x Agents for Databases and Applications for the 2 x SQL servers and 1 x SQL Reporting Server (assuming a SQL database is installed you need backed up).

As always, confirm this with the licensing department before purchasing the licenses.

You will need

1. 1x Hyper-V license for each host. This will entitle you to load AWS on any Windows servers on the licensed hosts

2. 2x Agent for Applications and Databases
Licenses for the SQL cluster

3. If the SQL Reporting Server has a SQL database then you need an Agent for Applications and Databases license for that
