Hi... I have 4 ESXi servers in a local network. One server is just for backup (actually using XSIBackup Pro) and the others are running the VMs to backup. XSIBackup Pro licence allow me to backup the 3 servers with a single licence (in fact allow me to backup up to 20 ESXi servers). Can I bakcup the 3 servers in the 4th server with a XSI Backup DC licence?

(c)XSIBackup-DC allows to install to two hosts as client and to an unlimited number of hosts as a server, in fact the server function is free. So you can backup two hosts with a license.

Re: Licencing

There is a big difference between DC and Pro edition. Nonetheless you might be able to find something cheaper out there.

If your ESXi host needs some backup software that costs a perpetual one time pay of 4.45 USD per host and you can't afford more than that, maybe that ESXi server is useless, because the gas you spent going to work today is probably worth more than that.

On top of that, you don't need to use (c)XSIBackup-DC, you can keep on using (c)XSIBackup-Pro

We will set prices that we believe to be fair for us and commercially viable. If some day we find sells are not going well, we'll close the project and do something else, those are the rules of a little simple game, it's called LIFE. In fact we have probably put too much enthusiasm in (c)XSIBackup, we could be earning a lot more money doing some more prosaic stuff.

You are right. XSIBackup-DC is good and the price is fear as it is. :-)

Re: Licencing

You just need two licenses to backup 4 ESXi servers to any number of backup servers. Each DC license allows to install it to two servers.
If you have 40 servers in a single place, then the Unlimited One Site license might be your best choice.
