Managing licenses

Virtuozzo Hybrid Infrastructure comes with a trial license that allows you to evaluate its features. The trial license has no expiration date but limits storage capacity to 1TB.

Virtuozzo Hybrid Infrastructure uses license keys as a licensing model for production environments. Implementing the provisioning model, keys are time-limited (subscription) or perpetual and grant a certain storage capacity. If a commercial license is already installed, a key augments its expiration date or storage limit.

If a license expires, all write operations to the storage cluster stop until a valid license is installed.


  • Block storage space used by iSCSI LUNs and compute volumes is not fully thin provisioned. After user data removal, unused storage space is not reclaimed and is reported as actual used space, which is charged according to your licensing model. For more details, refer to Logical space chart.


To install a license key

Admin panel

  1. On the Settings > License screen, click Register key.

  2. In the Register key window, paste the license key, and then click Activate.

The expiration date or storage capacity will change according to what the key grants.

Command-line interface

Use the following command:

vinfra cluster license load <license-key>
License key to register.

For example, to install the license from the key A38600-3P6W74-RZSK58-Y9ZH05-2X7J48, run:

# vinfra cluster license load A38600-3P6W74-RZSK58-Y9ZH05-2X7J48

You can view the details of the currently installed license in the vinfra cluster license show output:
