  GENERAL QUESTIONS Q1: What are the different pricing models available in r15?

A: CA ARCserve Backup r15 introduces below pricing models -

  Component Pricing lets you buy only the technologies you need. We recommend component pricing for



customers having three or less servers.

  Modules Pricing lets you buy CA ARCserve Backup technologies you need. We recommend Modules pricing



for customers having three to fifty servers and looking for only Backup product.

  Solutions Pricing lets you buy CA ARCserve Backup, CA ARCserve D2D and CA ARCserve Replication and High



Availability (RHA) Technologies you need for high quality data protection in a single bundle. We recommend solutions for three to fifty servers and looking for a complete protection protection solutions – Backup, Bare Metal Recovery and Replication.

  Managed Capacity Pricing (MCP) lets you protect high volumes of data with a flexible unlimited license. We



recommend MCP for customers having more than fifty servers. Q2: We are comfortable with r12.5 pricing model, why did we change the pricing model and naming conventions in r15?

A: The CA ARCserve r15 pricing model aligns with industry standard naming conventions which will help familiarize customers with our pricing quicker than was earlier possible. Moreover, the CA ARCserve r15 pricing provides an opportunity to offer a diverse set of quotes in a customer setup thereby providing a wider choice to our sales teams during the course of new deals and upgrades.

Q3: What are the licensing changes from r12.5 to r15? A: With the latest release, CA Technologies introduces the new CA ARCserve r15 Family of products. The products

that are a part of this are: CA ARCserve Backup r15 CA ARCserve D2D r15 CA ARCserve Replication r15 CA ARCserve High Availability r15 Considering that these individually make up the CA ARCserve r15 Family of products, the changes to the licensing from CA ARCserve Backup r12.5 to CA ARCserve r15 can be summarized as:

maintenance. tenance. Actual prices listed in pricebook will be different because of maintenance charges, charges, program discounts etc.  All prices listed are MSRP without main

 

  Introduction of Components Pricing Model (used to be known as ‘‘A la carte’’ in earlier releases). Mix and Match between the Components and Solutions pricing models is possible in CA ARCserve Backup r15 New ‘Solutions’ Technology Packages: Provide bundled licensing for new and upgrade CA ARCserve r15 customers. All

solutions bundles include a version of CA ARCserve D2D. The Enterprise Application Solutions Bundle also includes a copy of CA ARCserve Replication r15 ‘Modules’ Packages that correspond to the r12.5 SIP (Simplified Pricing) Suites: These provide a migration path for customers using previous version Suites, and a cost effective way to buy just backup.

Managed Capacity Pricing (MCP): The existing MCP model has been redefined to offer a 3 tiered MCP model. The new model is priced according to protected data as opposed to raw data as was the practice earlier. There are now 3 Tiers available in MCP CA ARCserve Backup Only CA ARCserve Backup and CA ARCserve Replication and High Availability Only CA ARCserve Replication and High Availability Only CA ARCserve All inclusive Q4: In the new Enterprise Application Solution we have 2 licenses of Replication included. What is the reason for not including Replication in the Advanced E-Mail Solution and Standard Database Solution? Is it possible to get an Enterprise Application Solution without 2 licenses of Replication?

A: No. Customers should either purchase individual components or the ‘Enterprise Application Solutions bundle’ to benefit from Replication Technology. This is because we expect that larger enterprise customers are more likely to use our Replication Technology than smaller customers with only a few Servers to protect. Q5: Will the CA ARCserve Replication r15 license included in the Enterprise Application Solutions Bundle support Replication of Linux and UNIX Servers? A: No. “CA ARCserve RHA Replication for File Servers Windows Enterprise OS without w ithout Assured Recovery” included as

part of enterprise application solutions cannot be used to replicate UNIX or Linux servers. Q6: What are the Technologies not included in the CA ARCserve r15 Solutions bundles?

A: The Linux and Unix Data Movers are a new addition in CA ARCserve r15. They provide SAN Based backups of Linux and Unix Servers sharing a Tape Library over the SAN with the Windows Primary Server. Linux and Unix Data Mover licenses are NOT a part of any of o f the CA ARCserve r15 Solutions Bundles Bundles and are available only as separate Component SKUs.

 All prices listed are MSRP without main maintenance. tenance. Actual prices listed in pricebook will be different because of maintenance charges, charges, program discounts etc.

 

  Q7: How do we license the SharePoint Agent in CA ARCserve r15?

A: With one SPS agent and one SPS agent license, user can protect SPS data (Web Front End, Database servers, App servers) which are distributed across the multiple machines. If customers also want to protect other data like whole systems of other boxes in the SPS farm, they should purchase additional Client agents (or other corresponding DB/APP agents if necessary). Q8: How do we license the Exchange Agent in an Exchange 2010 DAG (Database Availability Group) environment?

A: In Exchange 2010 DAG - Number of Exchange licenses needed should be equal to number of active servers that are being backed up in DAG. Doe s this change in Q9: SAN Option for Windows included theTape Library Option in earlier versions. Does r15?

A: This does not change. Windows Tape Library Option is included with the Windows SAN Option in CA ARCserve r15.

Q10: Is it allowed to have a mix of Component, Modules and Solutions pricing models in customer environment?

A: Yes. Mix and match is possible in the CA ARCserve r15 product SKUs.

UNIX/LINUX DATA MOVER Q11: When can a customer use the Linux/Unix Data Mover in his environment?

A: The Linux UNIX Data Mover provides faster backups for a customer that has a cross platform SAN environments (Linux/Unix machines and Windows machines connected to SAN switch). Windows Primary Server, other Windows Members and the Linux/Unix Data Mover can share a SAN Tape Library between each other. Data flow goes directly through the SAN, keeping the normal LAN free, and typically quicker than the normal Network based backups. Linux/Unix Data Movers can also backup to a Local FSD (Disk Device). For Example: In the below diagram, only the Servers in Green will qualify to become Unix/Linux Data Movers. All the Servers in Yellow have a locally attached Tape Library (or Tape Drive) and therefore therefore do not qualify to become Unix/Linux Data Movers.

 All prices listed are MSRP without main maintenance. tenance. Actual prices listed in pricebook will be different because of maintenance charges, charges, program discounts etc.

 

 

Q12: How is the Linux / UNIX Data Mover Licensed? A: Please note that “Unix Data Mover” and “Linux Data Mover” are not included in any of the Modules/Solutions.

Customers should purchase respective components separately if needed. However, Unix/Linux Data Movers are included in MCP pricing model. effect ffect customers with Cross SAN environments? Q13: How will the Linux/Unix Data Movers e

A: With the past versions of Windows CA ARCserve, we would have done backups of UNX/Linux data over the network to Windows CA ARCserve Backup servers. This increases the backup window and also causes a lot of network traffic to deal with which in turn increases the operational and administrative overhead of creating and maintaining separate network paths for backups of UNIX/Linux UNIX/Linux servers. Customers who use UNIX/Linux CA ARCserve product face the challenges of SAN issues, no central management, Ingres database issues, Oracle RMAN usability issues etc. All these problems will go away with r15 release as users will have the Windows CA ARCserve Backup Primary/Member server controlling the Unix\Linux data mover. CA ARCserve Windows server will be a Primary server and would be managing the media, while UNIX/Linux Data Mover only moves the data to the shared tape library. Hence Unix/Linux customers will achieve central database, central catalog, central media management, central licensing etc (all the advantages which r12 offered to CA ARCserve Windows customers). Q14: How are the upgrade paths for a customer using CA ARCserve for Windows/Unix/Linux r11.x? S. No 1

CA ARCSERVE FOR SBS/EBS BUNDLES Q17: What are the components included in SBS Bundle in CA ARCserve Backup r15 and what are the changes from r12.5?

A: The CA ARCserve for SBS Standard Bundle includes the CA ARCserve Backup Server, Windows client agent, Windows Open File Agent, Exchange Agent, SharePoint Agent and the Disaster Recovery Option. Note: Disaster Recovery Option has been added to this bundle in r15

The CA ARCserve for SBS Premium Edition includes all the Components in the standard edition listed above and an additional SQL Agent. Q18: What are the components in the CA ARCserve Backup r15 for Windows EBS Bundle?  

A: The CA ARCserve for EBS Standard includes 1 copy of CA ARCserve Backup Server, 2 copies of Windows client agent, 3 copies of Windows Open File Agent, Exchange Agent, SharePoint Agent and the Disaster Recovery Option. The EBS Premium Bundle includes everything in the Standard Bundle listed above and additionally a Windows Client Agent, an Open File Agent and a SQL Agent. Q19: If a customer is using the MS SBS Premium Version and wants to virtualize the second SQL Server, will CA ARCserve support his configuration?

A: Yes, this is possible with CA ARCserve. The customer can install his second SQL Server which is part of his SBS bundle on a Virtual Machine. Q20: Can a customer entirely virtualize his SBS platforms?

A: Yes, we support installing the SBS bundle on Virtual Platforms as Microsoft has claimed support for it. For customers looking to do disk based backups, this will work fine. But there are a few limitations to be noted with regard to Tape backup depending on the Virtualization Technolog Technologyy being used:

maintenance. tenance. Actual prices listed in pricebook will be different because of maintenance charges, charges, program discounts etc.  All prices listed are MSRP without main

 

  VMware Virtualization: VMware ESX Server allows you to configure a SCSI adapter or a VM machine with SCSI pass-through. This would allow the physical tape library to be visible to the Windows OS running inside the VM. If the Windows device manager in the VM can be configured to see the Tape Library CA ARCserve can definitely use it. But there are limitations when it comes to using a Tape Library (which has more than 1 drive). Though some customers are able to configure this, we do not claim official support for Multiple Drive Tape Libraries. Hyper-V Virtualization: Hyper-V currently does not support connecting a Tape drive to the Virtual Machine. We therefore recommend that customers using Hyper-V attach the Tape Library to the Physical Hyper-V Host Server. Please note that this is a limitation with Microsoft Hyper-V and not a limitation with CA ARCserve Backup.

  Q40: Can customers backup virtual machines using r15 Modules and Solutions?

A: Yes. Customers can backup both physical and virtual machines using the Client Agent for Windows (32AW) and Agent for Open Files (32OF) licenses included in all the Modules/Solutions. Q41: Can customers perform Hypervisor backups (VCB/VDDK/Hyper-V) using r15 Modules and Solutions?

A: Yes. Customers can perform all types of VM backups (VCB/VDDK/Hyper-V) using Client Agent for Windows (32AW) and Agent for Open Files (32OF) licenses included in all the Modules/Solutions. Q42: My customer purchased r15 Modules and he sees ZERO license count for VM agent licenses. How can he backup Virtual Machines using modules and solutions? Or should he purchase “CA ARCserve

Backup r15 Guest Based Virtual Machines Agent Bundle” or CA ARCserve Backup Per host licenses? A: R15 Solutions and Modules do not include Agent for Virtual Machines or Open Files Agent for Virtual Machines license component codes. Customers can perform all kinds of virtual machines backup (Network / Hyper-V / VCB / VDDK) using Windows client agent and Open Files Agent licenses. Cu stomers don’t have to purchase any additional Virtual Machines licenses if they already have r12.5 suites/r15 Modules/r15 Solutions licenses to protect Virtual Machines. Q43: In a VMware environme nt, will customers need to purchase the “Guest based Virtual Machines

Bundle” for the Proxy server or machine running VDDK, if CA  ARCserve Backup Server is is on Proxy server or the machine with VDDK itself?

A: If a customer is using Solutions or Modules license on the proxy server, then they won’t have to purchase the “Guest Based Virtual Machines Bundle” as the required technology is included in the Solutions and Modules bundles. For customers using Component licensing, the “Guest Based Virtual Machines Bundle” or Open Files Agent license is required on the Proxy.

Q44: Do customers need to purchase a Client Agent for Windows license in addition to the ‘Guest Based

Virtual Machines Agent Bundle’ license for e ach Virtual machine to perform file level restores from raw backups?

A: No, customers do not have to purchase a license for the Windows client agent separately to perform file level restores from full backups. However, customers need to install both agents on the Virtual Machine. Q45: If customers want to run only VCB or VDDK backups without the file level restore capability, what agents and licenses are required? Where should the agents be installed? A: Customers will have to purchase the ‘Guest Based Virtual Machines Agent Bundle’ licenses for the VCB Proxy and for each Virtual Machine that they want to protect. T hey need to install the ‘Agent for Virtual Machines’ and the ‘Client Agent for Windows’ on the VCB proxy ONLY. maintenance. tenance.

  Q46: What licenses do customers need if they have Microsoft Exchange on a guest Virtual Machine and want to perform Document level Backup plus VCB or VDDK backup of the entire Virtual machine?

A: It depends on the pricing model that customers are currently using:   Customers in the Component pricing model have to purchase one license for the ‘Agent for Microsoft Exchange’ and one license for the ‘Guest Based Virtual Machines Agent Bundle’.   Customers in Solutions pricing have to purchase one ‘Advanced Email Solutions Bundle’ –   this includes the Agent for Exchange as well as the Virtual Machine protection technologies*.   Customers using CA ARCserve r15 Modules need ‘Advanced Email Server Module’– this includes the Agent for Exchange as well as the Virtual Machine protection technologies*.   Customers in appropriate MCP pricing do not need to purchase any additional licenses. 







*Technology to backup Virtual Machines is included in r15 Modules/Solutions, not the license component codes. Q47: Where are the guest based virtual machines agent bundle licenses managed? On the Backup Server side or Agent side?

A: Agent for Virtual machines and OFA for Virtual machines licenses included as part of Guest based Virtual Machine Agent Bundle are managed at CA ARCserve Backup server. Till CA ARCserve Backup r12.5 the only exception was that if customers wanted to enable the Open File Agent (OFA) on the virtual machine backups, they had to enter the OFA license particular guests.Server. With CA ARCserve Backup r15, the Open File Agent Licensing has been centralized and canon bethose applied at the Backup Q48: Can customers use ‘Guest Based Virtual Machines Agent Bundle” license to perform backup/restore of a physical machine? A: No, customers can’t use a virtual machine agent to perform backup/restore of a physical machine. But in case of VCB proxy and Hyper-V host machine, customers can use “Agent for Virtual Machine” license to backup and restore data on VCB Proxy/Hyper-V Host machines (which are physical machines).

Q49: In the VMware environment, will cus tomer need to purchase the “Guest Based Virtual Machines

 Agent Bundle” for VMware VMware ESX Server?  A: No, customers do not need to purchase the ‘Guest Based Virtual Mach Machines Bundle’ license for ESX server to protect VMs running inside the ESX server. Customers have to purchase ‘Guest Based Virtual Machines Bundle’ licenses for VCB Proxy or VDDK machine and for each VM that they want to protect. However, if customers need to protect the ESX server host machine, they need to purchase a Client Agent for Linux license*  – but typically protecting the Virtual machines is enough, and no further protection for the ESX host itself is required.

*Backing up ESX host using Linux client agent is not officially supported by CA. Q50: In the VMware environment, will custom ers need to purchase ‘Guest Based Virtual Machines Agent

Bundle’ for VCB Proxy or machine with VDDK installed?  A: Yes, customers have to purchase “Guest Based Virtual Machines Bundle” license for the VCB Proxy P roxy as well.

  Q51: What is the preferred licensing model for the customers running hundreds of virtual machines in highly dynamic IT environment?

A: It is recommended that customers use the Managed Capacity Model, which is based on storage capacity and totally insulated from number of VMs. Q52: Do customers need “Guest Based Virtual Machines Agent Bundle” license to backup/restore UNIX/Linux guest OS as if it is a physical machine?

A: When CA ARCserve Backup encounters a UNIX/Linux virtual machine, it checks for th e presence of “Guest Based Virtual Machines Bundle” license. If it cannot find such a license it uses UNIX/Linux client agent or any of the Solutions or Modules (which include this functionality) license instead. Q53: Do customers need “Guest Based Virtual Machines Bundle” license to perform the types of backups listed below, if the guest OS of Virtual Machine is Linux/UNIX?

A: 1) Raw mode backup  –  When CA ARCserve Backup encounters a UNIX/Linux virtual machine, it first checks for the presence of “Guest Based Virtual Machines Bundle”. If it cannot find such a license, it uses the UNIX/Linux client agent license or any of the Solutions or Modules licenses.  – Customers can use ‘Guest Based Virtual Machines Agent Bundle’ or 2) a physical server using client clien t agentthis anyBackup of the as Solutions or Modules (which include functionality).

Q54: If a customer has a database on a virtual machine and wants to protect both database and virtual machine, which licenses should be purchased? A: This depends on the customer’s pricing model: Component Pricing: Customer has to buy 2 licenses; 1 Database agent to backup the database running inside   the Virtual Machine and 1 Guest Based Virtual Machines Bundle to backup Virtual Machine file system. Solutions Pricing: As technology to back up Virtual Machines is included in the Standard database Solutions   (or Module), customer can buy only the Standard Database Solution (or Module) to protect both database and virtual machine file system.

need eed to install on the Hyper-V Hy per-V Host machine Q55: Which CA ARCserve Backup components do customers n to protect the virtual machines? A: Customers need to install “Agent for Virtual Machines” and “Windows Client Agent” on the Hyper-V host machine, but just purchase a license for the “Guest Based Virtual Machines Bundle”, as it includes all these licenses. Customers must install Agent for Virtual Machines, Open File Agent for Virtual Machines and Windows Client Agent on Windows guest Virtual Machines to enable file level restores from an image level backup. We do not support file level restores from image level backups in case of UNIX and Linux Virtual Machines. Similar to the VCB Proxy/Machine with VDDK, the Hyper-V Host quite often is a Backup Server (“media server”) as well. In this case, the CA ARCserve Backup base product license or an Essentials File Server Solution (or Module) is required.

  Q56: A customer is currently protecting a VMware virtual environment using “Guest Based Virtual

Machines Bundle” licenses and plans to migrate from VMware virtualization virtualization to Microsoft Hyper -V technology. Does he need n eed to purchase new licenses for protecting Hyper-V environment? en vironment? A: No, the customer can use the same “Guest Based Virtual Machines Bundle” licenses to protect his new Microsoft Virtualization environment.

Q57: Do customers need the “Guest Based Virtual Machines Bundle” license to perform backups and granular restores on a Windows XP/Vista guest OS?

A: No. Customers do not need any license for backing up XP/Vista Physical or Virtual Machines.

Q58: Do customers with r12.5 suites under maintenance doing free upgrade to respective modules in

r15 automatically get the “Guest Based Virtual Machine Agent Bundle”? A: No, customers would not get a separate license for “Guest Based Virtual Machines Agent Bundle”. But please note that the “Guest Based Virtual Machines Agent Bundle” technology is part of “Essentials File Server Solutions/Module” which in turn is part of all other Solutions/Modules. Windows client agent and Open Files Agent license component codes included in all modules/solutions modules/solutions can backup both the physical and virtual machines.

Q59: Can a customer use Physical OFA licenses to perform open file agent backups on Virtual machines?

A: Yes.

Q60: How should the customer license the CA ARCserve Backup r15 for Windows VM Agent per Host License?

A: The customer must license 1 copy for every Physical Host Platform (VMware, Hyper-V, and Citrix) that he wants to protect regardless of the number of Guest VMs running on the host. The license provides an unlimited distribution of the CA ARCserve Backup r15 Guest Based Virtual Machines Agent Bundle. Q61: Does the Backup per-host license include Application agents?

A: No, the per-host licenses contain unlimited CA ARCserve Backup r15.0 Guest Based VM Agent Bundle licenses only. Customers have to purchase other options like CA ARCserve Backup Server, Application Agents (Exchange, SQL, SharePoint, and AD), Options (Enterprise Module, Tape Library Option, SAN Option etc) separately

  Q62: How many agent for Virtual Machines must the customer have to upgrade to 1 Host Based Virtual Machines license? A: We do not provide any upgrade path to the Host Based Licensing from the earlier ‘Agent for Virtual Machines’ or the ‘File Server Suite for Virtual Machines’. Customers should purchase 1 license per Host (Hyper-V/VMware) which

would provide Unlimited Guest VMs protection/host server. Q63: My customer is using File server suite to protect Virtual Machines. As he is protecting virtual Machines, he wants to purchase low priced guest based VM agent renewal SKUs instead of high priced File server module renewal SKU. Is he allowed to do that?

A: No. Please note that if customers chooses to opt out of physical suites/modules SKUs renewals and go for Guest based VM agent renewals SKUs, they would be losing many other high end technologies bundled as part of R12.5 Suites/r15 modules/solutions like Multistreaming, SAN, Tape Library Option, Enterprise Module etc which would cost them thousands of dollars if they want to buy them as components at a later point of time.

Q64: Can I mix and match Guest based VM agent and per-host licenses?

A: Yes, we allow mix and match between Guest based VM agent and per-host licenses. Let’s say if a customer has 2 Hyper-V servers – running 2 VMs on 1st Hyper-V and 15 on other. They can purchase 2 guest based VM agent bundles for the first ESX and per-host for the 2 nd. Q65: Can customers use an ‘Per-Host Virtual Machines’/’Guest Based Virtual Machines Agent Bundle’ license to perform network based backup of Windows/UNIX/Linux Virtual Machines? A: Yes. The ‘Guest Based Virtual Machines Agent Bundle’ license can be used to perform network-based backup of Windows/UNIX/Linux VMs. Customers don’t have to purchase separate ‘Guest Based Virtual machines Agent Bundle’ for Network Based Backups of Unix/Linu Unix/Linuxx Virtual Machines.

Q66: Do we have competitive upgrade SKUs for per-host licenses? A: Yes, coming soon! Q67: Can we use per-host licenses to backup UNIX and Linux VMs?

A: Yes Q68: Do we need to purchase additional “Guest based VM agent bundle” license with Backup per-host licenses to protect Hyper-V host or VCB/VDDK proxy?

A: No. Customers can protect the Hyper-V host or VCB/VDDK proxy machine with CA ARCserve Backup per-host license.

 All prices listed are MSRP without main maintenance. tenance. Actual prices listed in pricebook will be different because of maintenance charges, program program discounts etc.

 

  Q69: Can you explain the Virtual machine pricing and licensing in CA ARCserve Backup r15?

A: Using the ‘Guest Based Virtual Machines Bundle:  Let’s explain the Virtual machine pricing and licensing in release15 with an example. Suppose a customer wants to protect his VMware Virtual setup using CA ARCserve Backup r15 Guest Based Virtual Machines Bundle, and his VMware environment includes  – 1 VMware ESX server, 1 VCB Proxy/Machine with VDDK installed and 3 Guest VMs running Windows, UNIX and Linux on each, as shown below.

Note1: The Proxy (VCB/VDDK) and the CA ARCserve backup server are on the same machine in this example. Typically this is a CA ARCserve Member Server (“Media server”) in large environments, or a CA ARCserve Stand-Alone in smaller networks. If the Proxy machine with VDDK/VCB installed has no backup server locally installed, and the Backup server is an additional host that receives the data via the network, then the licensing count (table) is the same. Solutions/Module licensing of the same example: Three virtual machines need three “Guest Based Virtual Machines Bundles” if RAW level backup/restore of B-2 and B-3 is enough. Customers already owning r12.5 suites or r15 modules/solutions licenses licenses can use them to backup Virtual Machines and don’t have to purchase additional “CA ARCserve Backup r15 Guest Based Virtual Machines Agent Bundle” or “CA L icense”. Windows client agent/OFA for VM agent included as CA ARCserve Backup for Windows VM Agent per Host License” part of r12.5 suites or r15 modules/solutions modules/solutions can backup both physical machines and virtual machines.

If B-3 needs file level backup/restores (which for Unix is only possible via the network), then the licensing is one “Essentials File Server Solutions”/”Essentials File Server Module” for new customers or “Essentials File Server Module” in case of customers in maintenance opting for free upgrades for B- 3 plus two “Guest Based Virtual Machines Bundle” for B-2 and B-4. For the Server A (CA ARCserve Backup Server & VCB Proxy/VDDK) “Essential File Server Solutions”/ “Essential File  All prices listed are MSRP without main maintenance. tenance. Actual prices listed in pricebook will be different because of maintenance charges, program program discounts etc.

 

  Server Module” is required. If the VCB Proxy is a separate machine, the separate VCB Proxy will consume an additional “Guest Based Virtual Machines Bundle” license.

A: All the below options which were part of Enterprise Module in r12.5 would be packaged free with CA ARCserve base in r15 - Encryption - Multiplexing - Staging - User Profiles - Password Management - Audit log Q72: If a customer using r12.5 Enterprise Module wants to upgrade to CA ARCserve Backup r15 and continue to use Enterprise Module upto 32 simultaneous streams of data, will he need to upgrade his Enterprise Module License in CA ARCserve Backup r15?

A: No. The Multiplexing functionality is included as a part of the base in CA ARCserve Backup r15. If he does not require any of the other functionality included in the CA ARCserve Backup r15 Enterprise Module, he does not need to upgrade his Enterprise Module License.

Q73: How do we license the Global Dashboard Component introduced in CA ARCserve r15?

A: You need to install the Global Dashboard component on every Primary/Standalone server, and then configure it as ‘Branch Primary Server’. At the Central Site the Global Dashboard is installed and configured as a Central Primary Server. The license for appropriate number of Global Dashboard Branch primary servers needs to be entered on the Central Primary server. Count of Global Dashboard licenses must be equal to the number of branch sites (central site is also counted as 1 branch). Q74: How is the Global Dashboard in CA ARCserve Backup r15 licensed for a customer opting for solutions? A: Global Dashboard is included only in CA ARCserve r15 Enterprise Application Solutions.

 All prices listed are MSRP without main maintenance. tenance. Actual prices listed in pricebook will be different because of maintenance charges, program program discounts etc.

 

  Q75: How is the Global Dashboard in CA ARCserve Backup r15 licensed for a customer opting for Modules?

A: Global Dashboard is NOT included in any of the r15 Modules. Customers should purchase the Global Dashboard licenses separately

Q76: When using the Global Dashboard, is the Enterprise Module still needed in the Headquarters and each Branch Office? Is the Enterprise-Module included in the “Essentials File Server Solution”?

A: The Global Dashboard has been added a new licensed SKU in CA ARCserve Backup r15. It is no longer tied with the Enterprise Module. The Global Dashboard License is need for the Central Primary (Headquarters) and for each Branch Primary Server (Branch Office).

Q77: How do we license clustered servers?

A: CA ARCserve Backup is licensed per instance installed. So for a two node cluster, customer will need to buy two licenses – regardless of the number of cluster resources, active-passive, etc. However, due to limitations of CA’s licensing module, CA ARCserve Backup will look for licenses by cluster resource. In such scenarios, customers will need to call support to get extra licenses for their virtual nodes formed as part of the physical nodes. Example: in a 2 node cluster with one virtual node, 3 licenses are needed. Q78: What is “Media Management (disk and tape)” and “Agent Technology” Tec hnology” in the Licensing presentation

(the slide with the green balls).” A: Media Management means all the options o ptions required to manage the media and tape  – like Tape Library Option, SAN Option, Enterprise Module etc. Agent Technology means  – Client Agent technology required to protect different file systems – like Windows client agent, Unix client agent, Linux client agent, Mac agent etc

Q79: What Editions and Options are available in CA ARCserve D2D?

A: CA ARCserve D2D has 5 Editions and 3 Options Editions:

1. CA ARCserve D2D r15 for Windows Small Business Server Edition 2. CA ARCserve D2D r15 for Windows Server Basic Edition 3. CA ARCserve D2D r15 for Windows Server Standard Edition  All prices listed are MSRP without main maintenance. tenance.

A: D2D has 3 different Server Editions  – Basic, Standard and Advanced Editions Server Standard Edition is the full Edition which has all the functionality such as I2 Technology and Bare Metal

Recovery. Server Basic Edition is scaled down version of D2D Server Standard Edition which has limited I2 Technology. With

limited I2 Technology, customers cannot perform infinite incremental snapshots at a frequency of 15 minutes. Minimum schedule frequency would be 1 hour increments with weekly fulls required. The scheduled incremental on every 7th day would be automatically converted to Full. Server Advanced Edition is a bundle of D2D Server Standard Edition and all three options – Exchange, SQL and

Hyper-V Q82: My customer has Exchange Server on Windows 2003 Enterprise Edition OS. What should I quote to protect Exchange sever using D2D? Is Exchange option alone is enough?

A: No. Exchange option cannot work alone; it needs D2D Server Edition license as well. Please quote D2D Server Advanced Edition which has D2D Server Standard Edition and all the options or D2D Server Standard Edition and Exchange Option. Quoting D2D Server Advanced Edition would be cost-effective for the customer.

  Q83: Can I use Exchange and SQL Options with D2D Server Basic Edition? 

A: Yes you can use Exchange and SQL Option licenses with all the D2D Editions (SBS, Server Basic, Server Standard and Server Advanced Editions) and VM per-host licenses. Q84: Can D2D SBS Edition work on Windows EBS OS?

A: Yes, customers can use D2D SBS Edition to protect Windows EBS OS. Q85: What is the use of Exchange / SQL Option licenses?

A: Exchange / SQL option licenses allow you to perform application consistent backups of Exchange / SQL applications and also enable the database level restore capability Q86: Is there any license that does not have Infinite Incremental technology?

A: Yes, D2D Server Basic Edition has only limited I2 Technology. Customers cannot perform infinite incremental snapshots at a frequency of 15 minutes. Minimum schedule frequency would be 1 hour increments with weekly fulls required. The scheduled incremental on every 7th day would be automatically converted to Full. Q87: Is there any license that does not allow Bare Metal Recovery functionality?

A: All the D2D Edition licenses have the Bare Metal Recovery functionality. Q88: Can I use D2D VM per-host license to protect Hyper-V host machine? A: No, you can’t protect physical Hyper-V host machine using per-host licenses. Please purchase D2D Server Standard

Edition or Server Advanced Edition. Q89: What is the use of Hyper-V option?

A: Hyper-V Option enables consistent backup of applications inside VM while backing up the Hyper-V Host machine using D2D. Customers would not be able to do granular restore of Virtual Machines or Files/Applications running inside the Virtual machines. What that means is if Hyper-V option license is present, D2D will use Hyper-V VSS writer to protect VMs. If Virtual Machine Guest Additions are installed in VM Hyper-V writer will also ensure that applications inside VM are made consistent during backup using VSS writer in VM. However we do not provide special restore view for Hyper-V. User still has to restore files manually and register the VM back. Also applications protected inside VM cannot be directly restored. restored. User has to restore entire VM. If direct application restore is needed user should install D2D on the guest VM, license D2D Advanced Edition (contains SQL/Exchange/Hyper-V Options) and initiate a separate backup of the guest VM.

  Q90: Can customers use all three options – Exchange, SQL and Hyper-V Options packaged as part of D2D D 2D Server Advanced Edition?

A: No. D2D Advanced Edition includes Exchange, SQL and Hyper-V Options. However, Customers can use only ONE option of the three, not all. If they need more than 1 option, they have to purchase additional D2D server Advanced Editions or options SKUs.

Q91: How should the customer license the CA ARCserve D2D r15 for Windows VM Agent per Host License?

A: The customer must license 1 copy for every Physical Host Platform (VMware, Hyper-V, and Citrix) that he wants to protect regardless of the number of Guest VMs running on the host. The license provides an unlimited distribution of the CA ARCserve D2D r15 VM Editions.

Q92: Does the D2D per-host license include Option licenses? A: No, D2D per-host license does not include SQL/Exchange/Hyper-V Option Licenses. Customers should purchase

them separately. Q93: Do we have competitive upgrade SKUs for D2D per-host licenses?

A: Yes, coming soon! ne ed to purchase additional D2D Server Edition licenses to protect Hyper-V host or Q94: Do we need VCB/VDDK proxy?

A: Yes. Customers should purchase additional D2D Server standard or Advanced Edition license to protect the Hyper-V host or VCB/VDDK proxy machine. Q95: Can you explain the Virtual machine pricing and licensing in CA ARCserve r15? From Pricing perspective –  For Customers running less than or equal to four VMs per host   Purchasing D2D Standard Edition would be cost

effective than going for D2D per-host licenses. But we recommend to go with per-host licenses for >= 4 VMs also so that customers don’t have to purchase any additional licenses in case if they add more VMs on that host in future. For customers running five or more VMs per host  Purchase D2D per-host licenses * MSRP Product only price maintenance. tenance. Actual prices listed in pricebook will be different because of maintenance charges, program program discounts etc.  All prices listed are MSRP without main

 

  NOTE – Per-host licenses does not include Exchange/SQL options. Customers should purchase them separately if they

wish to protect and enable database level granular recovery of Exchange and SQL applications. From Licensing Perspective – 

D2D Per-host license is packed with unlimited licenses of D2D VM Edition licenses for use on single host. Customers would receive 1 single D2D VM Edition license key with 999999 user count. They should apply the same key on all the VMs running on the host. From Technology Perspective - Let’s say customer has Windows 2008 Hyper -v host machine running 10 VM inside it.

There are 2 ways in which customers can protect the Virtual machines.

1.  Using D2D Server Standard Edition or D2D Server Advanced Edition(If need to protect Exchange/SQL) a.  Install D2D inside each Virtual Machine that you want to protect and apply D2D Server standard Edition license. b.  If the VM has Exchange or SQL applications running inside it, apply D2D server Advanced Edition license. c.  Initiate a backup session for each VM Below are the benefits of using this method. 1.  Customers can protect the entire VM 2.  Can protect selected volumes 3.  Protect all the VSS aware applications 4.  Perform file/folder/volume level restores in VM 5.  Perform Exchange & SQL database level restores  – by applying SQL & Exchange option licenses 6.  Perform Bare Metal Recovery of that VM to physical machine/V machine/VM M 7.  Search and restores files inside the VM 2.  Using D2D Hyper-V Option a.  Install D2D on Hyper-v Host Machine and apply D2D Advanced Edition license or D2D server standard Edition + Hyper-V option licenses. b.  Backup Hyper-V host Machine, no need to initiate separate backup sessions for each VM. With one single backup customers can backup hyper-V host and all the VMs in a steady state. maintenance. tenance. Actual prices listed in pricebook will be different because of maintenance charges, program program discounts etc.  All prices listed are MSRP without main

 

  3.  Benefits include –  a.  Customers can protect the VM without having to install D2D inside VM. b.  No need to initiate multiple backups to protect VMs running on same Hyper-V machine. With one single backup, customers can back all the VMs and host machine. c.  Can perform application consistent snapshots of VMs However, the disadvantages disadvantages with this approach is a.  Can’t protect selected volumes inside the VMs  b.  Can’t perform file/folder/volume level restores of VM c.  Can’t perform database level restores of Exchange & SQL running inside the VMs  Re covery of individual VMs  d.  Can’t perform Bare Metal Recovery

e.  Can’t search and restore files inside the VMs

Q96. What are the different tiers available in r15 Managed Capacity pricing model?

A: CA ARCserve Managed Capacity pricing model has been a strong platform for Enterprise customers having large and changing IT infrastructures as well as increasing amounts of data to protect and manage. In r12.5 we had only 1 tier offering unlimited licenses of CA ARCserve Backup and XOsoft licenses. CA ARCserve r15 now offers 4 different Managed Capacity pricing Programs Programs as below: 1.  R15 CA ARCserve Backup Only provides Only provides the customer with unlimited access to all bases, options and agents of CA ARCserve B Backup ackup R15. This offering is license licensed d based on “Protected Stor Storage”. age”. 2.  R15 CA ARCserve Replication and High Availability Only provides Only  provides the customer with unlimited access to all bases, options and agent of CA ARCserve Replication and High Availability. 3.  R15 CA ARCserve Backup and R15 ARCserve Replication and High Availability Only  provides the customer with access to all bases, options and agents for CA ARCserve Backup and CA ARCserve Replication and High Availability. 4.  R15 CA ARCserve All-Inclusive provides All-Inclusive provides the customer with unlimited bases, options and agents of CA ARCserve ARCserv e Backup, CA ARCserve Replication and High Availability and CA ARCserve D2D.

Q97: What type of data is Managed Capacity licensed against? w hich meant customers paid for protecting storage that A: A: Previously MCP was licensed based on “RAW” storage, which they really didn’t protect.  If they had a 50TB disk array, but only 10TB used, we ccharged harged them for the entire 50TB. previous MCP offerings is that R15 is now based on “Protected Storage”.

Actual prices listed in pricebook will be different because of maintenance charges, program program discounts etc.  All prices listed are MSRP without main

 

  Q98: Now that we are charging customers based on “protected storage”, how should we do the true-ups?

A: Every year, the customer is required to provide us with reports showing full amounts of data being protected by all licensed products of their Managed Capacity offering. This amount will be used to determine their current licensing level. Q99: Why did we change pricing model from stacking model to linear?

A: In previous versions, we used to have stacking model. For example, customer having 45 TB would have to purchase several SKUs from the 5-10TB range, then more from the 11-16TB range, then more from the 16-20TB range and so on, up to their respective levels. The new R15 MCP is based on a straight TB range model, making making it easier for customers as well as Sales to understand. Customers can now simply purchase a quantity of SKUs from the range they are in. So a customer with 45TB would purchase a quantity of 45 SKUs from the 40-50TB range. gett into Managed Capacity Pricing model? Q100: What is the minimum buy-in to ge

A: The minimum amount for each of the Managed Capacity Programs is as follows: Backup Only – 2TB RHA only – 26 Servers Backup + RHA  – 2 TB All-Inclusive – 2TB Q101: My customer is in r12.5 Managed Capacity Model and under maintenance, which MCP offering is he entitled to get free of charge?

A: Existing MCP customers (Pre-R15) with Maintenance are entitled to a Free-of-Charge (FOC) upgrade to the R15 equivalent of their current MCP licensing. If they have Backup only, they are entitled to FOC upgrade to R15 Backup only. If they have Backup + XOsoft, they are entitled to FOC upgrade to R15 Backup + RHA MCP. They are always able to (we encourage) upgrading to the All-Inclusive offering. Q102: My customer is in r12.5 Managed Capacity Model and under maintenance. What should he purchase to get unlimited D2D as well along with Backup and RHA?

A: For customers that are under maintenance and would like to move to another MCP program, a renewal to that program is acceptable. In the above example, the customer could renew into All-Inclusive MCP. This process will require some consideration for the extent of their existing maintenance.
