PowerMax Integration licenses are subscribed at the array level, but per front‐end director. Each PowerMax engine consumes 0.5 licenses from the Enterprise Storage Wisdom Pack. Each PowerMax engine contains 2 directors. Licenses are reported per front-end director at a cost of 0.25 licenses per front end director.


0.5 license = 1 PowerMax engine with 2 front-end directors

1 license = 2 PowerMax engines with 4 front-end directors

10 front-end directors = 5 PowerMax engines = 2.5 licenses
