LICENSING POLICY

All of the Acronis® software products ("Software") are licensed to end-users by Acronis International GmbH ("Acronis").

The standard licensing policy is based on the number of devices and operating environment running on an End User’s premises or in anyone’s cloud, which Acronis Software is used for.

Acronis Products for Corporate users

Definitions:

"End User" means a natural person associated with the Enterprise who installs Acronis software on such person’s Supported Devices for use with Acronis software products.

"Device" means a single hardware system with operating environment either physical or virtual. For instance, a Windows or Linux operating system is considered a single "device", even if multiple operating systems are installed on a single hardware unit.

"Supported Devices" refers to the devices that are supported for use with the Acronis software products (as indicated in the Acronis documentation).

A single license is required for use the software for protection of a single device. However, a license is not required for the deployment of the software. It means that even if you do not install the software on the device and use it via bootable media, a separate license is required for each protected device.

Such license is non-transferable and non-assignable, except the following circumstances: when the original machine the Software license was used on: (i) becomes non-functioning or obsolete; and (ii) is taken out of service. In such cases, the license is transferable to a replacement machine.

In the case when the product is used on a cluster, each node of the cluster must be licensed.

Acronis Snap Deploy

Definitions

"Image" means an exact replica of an entire state of a computer’s system, including but not limited to: operating system, application(s), and data.

"Deployment" means installing, configuring, running, and testing the installation of an Image onto a Machine.

"Machine" means a computing device composed of a unique combination of motherboard, one or more network interface cards, and one or more CPUs which operates as a single hardware unit.

"License Holder" means an individual or entity that has purchased a Snap Deploy License and has agreed to and accepted the Acronis End User License Agreement.

Acronis Snap Deploy licenses

There are three license types available for Snap Deploy (each, a "Snap Deploy License" and, collectively, the "Snap Deploy Licenses"), which are comprised of the following:

Machine license

A "Machine License" grants the License Holder the right to an unlimited number of Deployments of one or more different Images to a single Machine. A Machine License is therefore bound to the initial License Holder and the single Machine upon which the License Holder first deployed an Image using that License. A Machine License may not be transferred to another person or onto a different Machine. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the License Holder’s Machine is rendered obsolete or permanently removed from service ("Decommissioned"), such License Holder shall provide to Acronis Customer Service a screenshot of the used Machine License, the MAC address of the Decommissioned Machine, and documentation from the License Holder’s IT department (or equivalent) confirming to the reasonable satisfaction of Acronis that the Machine was Decommissioned. Upon Acronis’s written confirmation to the License Holder that such Machine was Decommissioned and approval of the transfer, the License Holder may transfer the Machine License to a different Machine. To summarize, a Machine License:

  1. Is bound to a single Machine.
  2. Allows for as many Deployments as License Holder wants.
  3. May use multiple Images. (no limit)
  4. Is only transferable to another Machine in the event of Decommission.
  5. Is not transferable to a different License Holder.

Deployment license

A "Deployment License" permits the License Holder a single Deployment of a unique Image on a single Machine. In the event that the Deployment is not successful, the License Holder may use the same license to perform another Deployment on the same or a different Machine. However, unlike the Machine License, the Image install using the Deployment License may not be changed, nor can it be re-installed. To summarize, a Deployment License:

  1. Is bound to a single Machine.
  2. Allows for a single Deployment only.
  3. May use only one Image.
  4. Is not transferrable to another Machine.
  5. Is not transferable to a different License Holder.

VAR license

A "VAR License" permits the License Holder to make an unlimited number of Deployments of a unique Image to a single Machine to which the VAR License is then bound ("VAR Machine"). A VAR License may not be transferred to a different Machine. A VAR License may only be transferred from one License Holder to another License Holder in connection with the sale of the VAR Machine and subject to the transferee's agreeing to and accepting the Acronis's EULA. Each VAR License will correspond to one Image and that Image may not be changed. If a License Holder wishes to deploy a different Image onto the VAR Machine, the License Holder will require a different VAR License. To summarize, a VAR License:

  1. Is bound to a single Machine.
  2. Allows for as many Deployments as License Holder wants.
  3. May use only one Image
  4. Is not transferrable to another Machine.
  5. Is only transferable to a different License Holder in connection with the sale of the Kitted Machine.

The foregoing three Snap Deploy Licenses are further differentiated based upon whether they are deployed on a server or a workstation.

  • A "Server License" is a Snap Deploy License that is deployed on a server.
  • A "Workstation License" is a Snap Deploy License that is deployed on a workstation.
Acronis Snap Deploy® Machine LicenseThis license grants the License Holder the right to an unlimited number of Deployments of one or more different Images to a single Machine.
Acronis Snap Deploy Deployment LicensesThis license permits the License Holder a single Deployment of a unique Image on a single Machine.

LICENSING POLICY for DISCONTINUED PRODUCTS

All of the Acronis® software products ("Software") are licensed to end-users by Acronis International GmbH ("Acronis").

The standard licensing policy is based on the number of devices and operating environment running on an End User’s premises or in anyone’s cloud, which our Software is used for.

"End User" means a natural person associated with the Enterprise who installs Acronis software on such person’s Supported Devices for use with Acronis software products.

A "Device" means a single hardware system with operating environment either physical or virtual. For instance, a Windows or Linux operating system is considered a single "device", even if multiple operating systems are installed on a single hardware unit.

"Supported Devices" refers to the computing devices that are supported for use with the Acronis software products (as indicated in the Acronis documentation).

A single license is required for use the software for backup of a single device. However, a license is not required for the deployment of the software. It means that even if you do not install the software on the device and use it via bootable media, a separate license is required for each backed up device.

Such license is non-transferable and non-assignable, except the following circumstances: when the original machine the Software license was used on: (i) becomes non-functioning or obsolete; and (ii) is taken out of service. In such cases, the license is transferable to a replacement machine.
