Arkeia Software

How to Buy

WD works hard to make it easy to buy our products.

Who Sells WD Arkeia Network Backup?

Over one hundred resellers around the world distribute WD Arkeia products. In addition to software and appliances, these resellers generally can offer deployment support in your local language. If one of our resellers can’t meet your needs, software is also available directly from WD. Payment by bank transfer or check is accepted. In many locales, payment by credit card is also accepted.

Licensing Model

Source Volume or Per Server License?

Software is licensed both on a data source volume basis and on a per machine basis.

In the source volume licensing model, pricing will only depend on the volume of data (before deduplication and compression) that you will backup; the number of agents is unlimited and most options such as deduplication are included.

Should you prefer to license WD Arkeia on the historical per server license basis, individual products and bundles remain available.

If you are a hosting provider, we have special pricing plans that limit your up-front investment and allow us to offer a pricing structure that matches your revenue structure.

Perpetual or Subscription License?

WD offers both traditional perpetual licensing and subscription licensing to meet your specific needs.

Remember that every WD Arkeia appliance and software license is bundled with 12 months of maintenance which include technical support as well as minor updates and major upgrades in the price we quote. Request a quote here.

Getting Your License

You can download all our products from our web site for a free, 30-day test drive. We’re confident you’ll like what you find. However, if you have questions or need help, contact our technical support team during your evaluation. When you license our software, we will send you license keys that are valid perpetually (unless you purchased a subscription). And while we hope that you’ll stay current with WD’s technical support services, your software license keys will remain valid even if you don’t. Contact sales here.
