vSphere® Data Protection™ Advanced is sold separately from vSphere or as part of the Enterprise and Enterprise Plus editions of the VMware vSphere® with Operations Management™ Accelerations Kits.
vSphere Data Protection Advanced is licensed per CPU (processor). One license of VDP Advanced is required for each CPU of vSphere hosts running protected virtual machines. Simply put, match the number of vSphere licenses in the environment.
This means customers can:
- Protect as many virtual machines as needed on licensed vSphere hosts.
- Deploy virtual appliances as needed (up to 10 per VMware® vCenter Server™).
- Deploy application-aware agents as needed (they are included with the solution).
vSphere Data Protection Advanced can also be purchased as part of
the Enterprise and Enterprise Plus editions of the vSphere with Operations Management
