Traditional vs Capacity NBU 7.5 licenses
I am working on a project where existing NetBackup tape based infrastructure will be migrated to disk based backups using EMC Data Domain 990. There are close to 400 backup clients and using traditional NBU licensing approach including multiple agents licenses.
Since new backup infrastructure will be leveraged to multiple internal clients within the organization so I have proposed to go for capacity based license model instead of traditional one. As I understood from Capacity licensing model that cost calculated on front end TBs and includs license for all databases and applications agent. Only NBU OST for DDBoost license is needed to enable de-duplication from Media servers.
All clients are ‘licensed’ for all agents at no additional cost with the capacity model? Does this include bare metal?
Can someone support me to justify capacity licensing model is better approach than traditional one in terms of cost involved?
