Topics in this section include:
Rapid Recovery Core consumes one license from your license pool per central processor unit (CPU) socket, or one per machine protected by Rapid Recovery Agent. In the past (as represented by Rapid Recovery License Portal defect 6682), if protecting the same hypervisor in 2 Cores, twice the number of licenses were consumed.
If you protect guest VMs from the same VMware host in two separate Rapid Recovery 6.3 Cores, only a single set of licenses from your license pool (one per socket) are now consumed. This improvement in license consumption assumes the following:
If your business needs require you to protect the same VMware host in 2 separate Cores in the same license portal group, and want to reduce your license consumption, then Quest recommends upgrading both Cores to release 6.3.
The QorePortal is the new name for the web portal formerly called the Quest Data Protection Portal.
The QorePortal is a web-based portal that lets organizations monitor and manage multiple Rapid Recovery Cores and protected machines from a single interface. You can monitor tasks and events, view repository status, monitor commands and system health, generate reports that span multiple Cores, and download Rapid Recovery software. QorePortal is integrated with the Rapid Recovery License Portal and vFoglight.
Licensed users of Rapid Recovery can access the QorePortal using the web address https://qoreportal.quest.com/.
