Licensing Policy

All Acronis SCS, Inc. software products (“Software”) are licensed to end-users by Acronis SCS, Inc. (“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.

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