We have licenses that run on a yearly basis. We are paying somewhere around $10-15,000 on licensing a month. We don't have too big of an environment.

I think setup and management to should be easy for a backup applications, because skill personnel for IT Jobs are scarce these days leaving admins with more work. So Automation and simplicity is the way to go to be able to complete your work. I think cost much be seen in relation to the value of what is being backed up. If you purchased a brand new Mercedes, would you purchase low cost insurance for it?

Licensing is based on the number of ports you have. Even if you aren't using all the ports, you will be charged for them. The license is renewed on a yearly basis and we do pay for support on top of that.

For Backup Exec usage, the client uses the software with us because we have a license for this product. The license availability we have is for ten years. Licensing is somewhat expensive. They should decrease the price.

I would like to see a better licensing model. They changed it and it's just horrendous.
