You will require 1 Core Product license for the media server and 1 Remote agent license per remote

server.If you want to take backup of any application than you need application specific license.

For eg: To backup 1 Exchange server you will need 1 Agent for Application & Database license

In addition if those remote servers run an application that needs the Agent for Application & Database License then this allows you to backup the file system as well so you won't need a standard agent licesne as well for that server

If you have VM's, you might want to get the V-Ray edition.  You can check out the licencing guide.
