Do I have to buy physical licenses and virtual licenses of ShadowProtect when migrating physical to virtual machines?
In this instance, we recommend that you purchase a two-week or one-month technician’s license for StorageCraft® ShadowProtect® IT Edition to migrate your physical servers to virtual environments and then protect the data on your VMs with ShadowProtect Virtual.
What is the difference between the Virtual version and other versions of ShadowProtect?
StorageCraft ShadowProtect® Virtual is licensed for virtual machines (VMs) only. You purchase licenses in packs for the type of machine you want to protect (virtual servers or virtual desktops). It includes all of the functionality of ShadowProtect Server or ShadowProtect Desktop, but it is hard-locked to VMs. ShadowProtect Virtual cannot be used to back up a physical machine.
Is maintenance included?
Yes. One year of maintenance is included. After one year, maintenance is 20% of MSRP.
Are there discounts for educational, government and not-for-profit entities?
Yes. There is a 25% discount off StorageCraft® ShadowProtect® Virtual manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) for government, education and not-for-profit entities.
