Capacity based (per TB)
DataCore Software-defined Storage (SDS) Services counts three editions: Enterprise, Standard and Large Scale Secondary Storage.

All editions are licensed per capacity (in 1 TB steps). The more capacity that is used by an end-user in each class, the lower the price per TB.

Each edition includes a defined feature set.

Enterprise (EN) includes all available features plus expanded Parallel I/O.

Standard (ST) includes all Enterprise (EN) features, except FC connections and Shared Multi-Port Array (SMPA) support with regular Parallel I/O.

Large Scale Secondary Storage (LS) includes all Enterprise (EN) features, except RAM based functionalities: Caching, Random Write Accelerator (RWA) and Continuous Data Protection (CDP) with limited Parallel I/O.

Any initial license purchase includes support for either 1, 3 or 5 years.

Capacity can be expanded in 1 TB steps. There exists a 50 TB order minimum for Large Scale Secondary Storage (LS).

Cost neutral upgrades are available when upgrading from Standard/Large Scale Secondary Storage (ST/LS) to Enterprise (EN).
