Manage CloudLink licenses

This chapter provides information about the CloudLink licenses and managing them in CloudLink Center.

CloudLink license files determine the volume of machine instances, Key Management Interoperability Protocol (KMIP) clients, CPU sockets, encrypted storage capacity, or physical machines with SEDs that your organization can manage using the CloudLink Center. License files also define the CloudLink Center usage duration. For example, your license might enable you to run 25 machines in CloudLink Center for 365 days, or encrypt 5 TB of data space in CloudLink Center for perpetuity.

Licensing involves uploading a license file to make it available to CloudLink Center. For more information, see Upload CloudLink license files.

You upload a license during initial server configuration. For more information, see the Dell EMC CloudLink 7.1 Deployment Guide.
