New Cluster Licensing Model (IVE OS v7.0 onwards)

Can anyone confirm the following for IVE OS v7.0 onwards?

If I wanted 50 concurrent users on a high availability cluster of 2x SA4500 appliances...

Option 1)

2x SA4500 and 1x SA4500-ADD-50U license for primary unit.

50 users whilst primary is active, secondary is standby.

If failover to secondary unit, 50 users for 5 days?

If failover not fixed and secondary still in use after 5 days, 0 users?

Option 2)

2x SA4500 and 2x SA4500-ADD-50U licenses, one for each unit.

100 users whilst primary is active, secondary is standby.

If failover to secondary unit, 100 users for 5 days?

If failover not fixed and secondary still in use after 5 days, 50 users?

Thanks!

JH

Your option #2 is correct - however if I understand your scenario then your option #1 is wrong. In the event of a failure the remaining box license count acts as a "cap" IE - you can't ever go ever 2X of what that box had. So in your case it would be zero licenses for 5 days.

If your secondary box in option #2 had a license for 10 users then you would have 20 users licensed for the 5 days falling to 10 after that.
