Normally, an appliance is invoiced as one item and the data backup protection is invoiced separately, usually on an annual basis. However, under the Capital Projects Program all of the costs are rolled into the hardware cost leaving you no recurring fees.
Your data protection appliance comes included with enough data backup protection for as many years as needed to meet your Capital Project requirements. After that time is reached, the cycle is refreshed with a new appliance designed for your most current needs. Data protection overages that may occur during that period can be invoiced to meet your budgetary needs.
