Minimum requirements to deploy ZBA appliances are:

Minimum of 8GB of dynamic disk allocation. The system will require 2GB, but it’s recommended the minimum amount in order to ensure the logs storing.
At least, 2 network interfaces. It’s a good idea to maintain the maintenance network interface independent from the services network interface. If the cluster is configured, it’s recommended to create another independent NIC to reduce latency.
Follow the good practices when configuring a cluster service. Both nodes should have the same number of network interfaces and drivers.

The software included in the ZBA Enterprise Edition is delivered under the terms of GNU Affero General Public License v3.

The ZBA products licensing model is related and associated to the number of instances installed, so it’s needed as much appliances as installations required. Resources like CPU, memory or throughput allocated per node are not relevant to the licensing model.

If a single node is required, only it’s needed to acquire one appliance license. If a cluster LB service is required, two appliance licenses are needed.

When acquiring an appliance, a product version certificate is obtained. Each appliance could be updated with the incremental software releases that we provide with a valid Support Plan in form of install package, but a re-installation of any product version upgrade requires to acquire a certificate upgrade for such new version.

By other hand, a re-installation during the appliance lifetime is supported meanwhile the hostname remains the same. In a similar way, an appliance certificate could be reissued to change the hostname of the appliance if there isn’t any associated re-installation of such.

How does the evaluation work?

The evaluation of this product is free of charge and it allows to install, create and use the real product during one month by default. Extensions of this period could be requested to the Sales Team through the contact form. During the evaluation period, pre-sales support is available.

Once the decision of purchase is made, it’ll be enough to issue a definitive activation certificate without the need of deploying the appliance again.

Is support included with the appliance?

The support service is not included with the appliance and it should be acquired a part of the product in order to get updates, security advisories and patches, hotfixes, development proposals and assistance from our specialized Support Team. We can provide four different support plans for every application requirements, from Standard to Critical support services.
