What is a backend server in Snapt Aria licensing?

  • Dark
    Light

When purchasing a Snapt Aria Essential or Growth license, you may notice that there is a limit to the number of backend servers per license which is an IP:port combination in the load balancer.

For example, if you have a 5 Upstreams/backend server license (Essential License) then you can only have up to 5 web servers behind the ADC's load balancer.

The higher up in the tier of licenses, the more Upstreams/backends you will have available to you for specifying your backend servers unless you have purchased an ADC-xG or Enterprise package that offers an unlimited amount of backend servers per license.

A Snapt Aria paid license can only be deployed onto a single server at a time, see Serializing a license for more information.
