Data Protector CBL is measured by Front End Terabytes but also counts the data under retention. Usually most of customers now have D2D for Short term retention and D2T for Long term retention.
CBL includes all protected data into calculation and cannot distinguish between the current and original license type that was used for backup. Systems that are not included in backup (not exist anymore) can be copied to separate media which can be then exported from Cell Manager system.
Customers usually do not want to export the data under long term retention as their compliance needs the data to be restored within the SLA defined.
Would there be any possibility to review the Data Protector Capacity based licensing as our competiton does not calculate data under retention.
