Do I need to buy a license for my backup/D.R. system?
Do you have special deals for backup systems??
Yes, we have special arrangements for backup or Disaster Recovery (D.R.) or High Availability (H.A.) systems.
We define a backup system as one where the software will only ever be run as an alternative to an already licensed system, or short periods of testing (no more than 30 days per annum).
In relation to backup systems, you have two choices:
However, it also has the major disadvantage that you will need to contact us and ask for a key each time, and we cannot guarantee to turn around requests for temporary licence keys in less than two working days.
That will probably be fine if you’re just planning a D.R. test, but in the event of a real disaster, you could be without CoolSpools for a couple of days or more.
Since our licence keys are tied to a specific serial number and LPAR number, clearly this is only an option where the details of the system are known in advance and may not therefore be suitable for D.R. support and maintenance where the identity of the machine to be used in the event of a disaster is unpredictable.
