Article summary

When the CTERA Agent is installed on a Windows Workstation operating system:

  • If you are subscribed to the Cloud Backup service, the agent consumes one CTERA Drive Protect, previously called Workstation Backup, license.
  • If you are only subscribed to the Cloud Drive service, and not to the Cloud Backup service, your agent does not consume CTERA Drive Protect, previously called Workstation Backup, licenses.

When the CTERA Agent is installed on a Windows Server operating system the agent consumes one CTERA Drive Server, previously called CTERA Server Agent, license from the CTERA Portal quota.

Note: A license is consumed for as long as the agent device is defined in your CTERA portal account, even when signed out. If you are no longer using an agent, you can delete the agent device entry from your CTERA portal account to regain its license as described in the CTERA End User Portal Guide, in the section Managing Your Devices.
