VJBOD Cloud Licensing Overview

VJBOD Cloud requires a license for each connection to a unique cloud space. A cloud space may be called a bucket, container, account name, or something else depending on the cloud service provider. For example, the following VJBOD Cloud volumes and LUNs require three licenses:

  • Amazon S3 → Bucket1 → Volume1

  • Amazon S3 → Bucket2 → Volume2

  • Azure → Space1 → LUN1

Each unique cloud space can contain an unlimited number of VJBOD Cloud volumes and LUNs. For example, the following VJBOD Cloud volumes and LUNs require only one license:

  • Amazon S3 → Bucket1 → Volume1

  • Amazon S3 → Bucket1 → Volume2

  • Amazon S3 → Bucket1 → LUN1

If a license expires, all VJBOD Cloud volumes and LUNs created from the cloud space attached to the license become read-only until the license is renewed.

VJBOD Cloud includes one free license.
