Hi, looks like another great product !

Couple questions

1. How is license counted? 1 per SERVER that needs to mount the virtual databases only?
e.g. if I have a DRP/standby SQL Server while having 30+ SQL Backup licenses backing up to file server.
I only need 1 license for the standby server that can mount backups on the file servers directly?

2. Does that server ALSO need license for SQL Backup? or that's builtin to "uncompress" the .SQB file on-the-fly?

3. Is SQL Virtual Restore part of SQL Backup license, like Object Recovery Pro?

I see the offered when I check my upgrade options with my Serial #

Thank you! keep up the good work

1. The licensing is 'per server' that you want to virtually restore the DB to. So in your instance if you intend to mount the backup files on the DRP SQL Server only as virtualy restored databases then you only need one license. If you want to virtually restore on any of the other servers then you need a license for those servers too. Much like the licensing for SQL Backup.

2. The server does not need a license of SQL Backup installed. SQL VR will uncompress the .SQB on the fly.

3. SQL Virtual restore is not part of SQL Backup, it is its own seperate tool. We have a great value bundle called the SQL Backup and Restore Bundle that contains both backup tools and SQL Virtual Restore. This is a valid upgrade path for you.

Please get in touch with us via email on for more information and for pricing information.
