Customer may choose to license NetBackup based upon a traditional model or a capacity based model. Traditional model licenses are essentially component based (i.e., based upon the OS type and the power of physical machine). The capacity model simplifies how customers manage their backup environment by basing licenses on the amount of data to be protected (front-end data). This approach provides customers with more flexibility by allowing them to focus on how to best protect data regardless of the type of machine or method of protection used (e.g., tape, disk) and where the data is stored (e.g., multiple sites).
