You count Data Director licenses according to the number of database virtual machines (DBVMs) and vFabric Postgres databases in use. If you use more licenses than you have purchased, you can purchase additional licenses or change how licenses are used.

Data Director supports up to 32 vCPUs.

Data Director requires one license per database virtual machine-vCPU pair, regardless of the database type and whether the virtual machine is powered on or off.

Backup database virtual machines do not count towards your license total.

A vFabric Postgres production-use virtual machine requires one license for each virtual machine-vCPUs pair. For example, a four-vCPU vFabric Postgres production-use virtual machine requires two licenses.
