This topic describes the DR licensing considerations. Phoenix Enterprise suite requires you to buy DR licenses (one license per virtual machine) to protect the VMware environment from disaster. However, with Phoenix Elite, you can configure as many as virtual machines for disaster recovery.
- If a virtual machine is configured and enabled for disaster recovery, it is treated as "one licensed instance" for Phoenix DRaaS.
- Before configuring virtual machines for Phoenix DRaaS, you must ensure that you have sufficient unused DR licenses. For example, if you have purchased 50 Phoenix DRaaS licenses, and have already configured and enabled 25 virtual machines for disaster recovery, then you can additionally configure 25 virtual machines for disaster recovery.
