Re: Veritas Cluster license

The new product name is 'Infoscale'.

Are you interested in Cluster software only, or Storage Foundation as well?

Best to discuss licensing requirements and actual product(s) that you need with your local reseller.

Herewith extract from Infoscale Licensing Guide:

Re: Veritas Cluster license

You licence by core for the least amount.

So if you have 2 ESX servers and each has 24 cores, then if you run a 2-node cluster with each VM exposed to 16 cores then you pay for 2x16=32 as this is less than 2x24=48, but if you ran a 4-node cluster on the same 2 ESX servers, then you would licence for 2x24=48 as this is less than 4x16=64.
