BE2012 SBE licenses

Hi guys,

 

Another question here, with regards to the licenses that the new Backup Exec 2012 have. It states that SBE has a maximum of 3 licenses that can be purchased once required. It also states that the license you can purchase are only limited to Agent for Windows, Agent for Linux and Agent for MAC. Is the Agent for Apps and DB also available for purchased for the BE2012 SBE?

...if the base license ships

...if the base license ships with those agents (and it's worded like it does!), then yes, the applications would be protected by the agent.

Thanks!

 

EDIT: Just to explain...SBE 2012 Edition will protect up to 3 servers (in combination of VMs/physical). The Hyper-V agent covers VMs hence not needing the RAWS agent, and database agents are covered by the base license. Check pg. 6 of the guide above.

It doesn't say anything. So it looks like the 3 licenses protect the 3 servers with whatever is on them!

So it seems like all of the app running inside the server is protected even if we dont purchase the apps and db license?
