4. Spectrum Protect Suite - Entry versions are limited to 100 TB of managed backup data, and two TSM servers per enterprise.
5. Archive option applies to data ingested through an archive operation and backed up to TSM VTL or tape archive pools. Data backed up to other storage pools is fully supported and charged at the standard Suite capacity rate.
6. ProtecTIER Option measures capacity after IBM ProtecTIER deduplication is used. Assuming 4:1 deduplication, capacity based licensing for data stored with ProtecTIER would be 75 percent less than the top tier rate.
