OST Licenses needed for ExaGrid?
I have mixed information on this. Is OST licenses needed for ExaGrid?
Source 1: OST licenses are not needed since ExaGrid is doing post dedupe. Therefore the basic disk licenses are sufficient if customer is not doing Storage Life Policy or having different retention periods for the backups.
Source 2: OST licenses are needed as long as backups are stored in any deduplication appliances.
Can someone please advise?
