I need to know the licensing method if i am planning to run 4 Node Window cluster  on Virtual machine.

1) Physical Machine having Dual CPU with 12 core ( Intel Xeon E5).

2) Virtual Machine having 16 vcpu each .

So need to understand how many license i need to buy to create 4 node Vertias Cluster and which license type .

Quick help is appreciated.

Have a look at the Infoscale Licensing Guide:

How are InfoScale 7.0 Products Licensed?

Re: Veritas Cluster

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.


Re: Veritas Cluster

Did I get right on this,


IF I have two node cluster and each node has 4 physical CPU's and 8 cores each then shall I have to buy 32*4=128 licenses.

Or by node basis I wil have to buy?

Please help to understand it.
