Calculating Storage Needs

To avoid running out of storage space too quickly or to avoid unnecessary storage costs, determine your storage needs before selecting a Q-Cloud Protect AMI and configuring the instance's EBS volume storage capacity.

Review the following sections for recommendations in calculating your storage requirements.

Capacity Based Licensing for GovCloud and C2S

When you purchase Q-Cloud Protect as a licensed AMI from Quantum, you will define the amount of storage allocated to the cloud appliance through its capacity-based license. The initial license can be purchased in 1 TB increments from 1-90 TB. At a later time, you can add licensed capacity in 1 TB increments, with a maximum of 90 TB of overall licensed capacity.
