Libraesva Email Archiver offers two licensing options by storage or by mailbox.
The licensing model is applied to the whole Archiver and you cannot choose different licensing model for different tenants hosted on the same Archiver.
Below a description of how each license works.
License by storage
How it is calculated: the license is calculated by the amount of storage allocated by all archived mails after the compression. The storage occupied by additional copies (volumes) is not computed in the license.
Overuse: when the used storage is over the licensing limit, the Archiver will continue to work, but archiving of new emails is blocked.
License by Mailbox
How it is calculated: the license will count only active mailboxes (shared mailboxes and aliases does not participate to the license amount).
You always know which mailbox are archived and you don’t need to worry about the increasing of archiving space by the years, because the license cost depends only from the mailboxes count and it’s independent from the used storage.
- At least one domain configured by tenant (mandatory).
- Directory service configured (suggested).
- Connector configured (suggested).
Overuse: when the active mailboxes count is over the licensing limit, the Archiver will continue to work, but archiving of new emails is blocked.
N.B. If no directory services and connectors are configured license will be calculated by counting each unique email address by configured domain.
Change licensing model
It is always possible change licensing model. You can see anytime the used storage and the mailboxes count from the tenants page.
It is possible to configure archiving tenant limitation based on license model, by enabling limits them from the tenant page.
If the Archiver licensing model is storage based, storage limits are available.
If the Archiver licensing model is mailbox based, mailboxes limits are available.
When the alert limit is reached, an alert email notification is sent to the tenant administrator.
When the stop limit is reached, the archiving process is blocked for the tenant.
