I can't answer for DLO licensing  as it is a separate product (with it's own forum) but there is a lot of info on BE 15 licensing here:

As a general piece of advice the Capacity Edition includes all agents and option (with Capacity Lite being a slightly limited version of the same thing), where both editions are priced on whole TB against the total for a single full backup of every resource you need to backup. This might make your choice easy as you just need to work out your current capacity requirement and add a bit for future data growth with no concrens about specific agents or option licenses. You should still check on if this is more cost effective than legacy "a-la-carte" licensing of everything individually and/or something like V-Ray edition plus some extras.

Note: Capacity edition is only calculated on 1 full backup of eveything - if you run 20 full backups of the same data on different days for data retention purposes - it is still only calculated on the last 1 and if you stop backing something up then it will not be included in the count after 30 days

Extra infor: As you have multiple sites if yoy are looking at site-to-site copies of backup sets you should possibly be looking at a CASO setup with Deduplication Storage (which does mean Capacity Lite is not an option)

This kind of implementaion is really wherr you should be working with a reseller and/or some form of consultancy
