The licensing of the SBMS provides an easy to understand rate on a per-connection basis (for each installation connection of SyncBackPro and the SBM Console). See our volume discount licensing page for pricing:

While we appreciate there will be some users who wish to purchase the SBMS for their personal use, the audience of the SBMS are businesses and organizations. In contrast with SyncBackSE/Pro & OnClick Utilities, there is no personal use (home use) licensing for the SBMS.


The setup of the SBMS is not as straightforward as simply installing a windows program like SyncBackPro.


Note that the SBMS installs as a Windows service and that the SBM Console connects with the service via a user interface.


The SyncBack Management Console is usually installed on the same network server as the SBM Service for initial setup. After the setup has been completed the SBM Console can however be installed on a manager's machine and used from there.


The SBM Console is one of two clients that can access the SBM Service. The SBM Console is for administrators to manage the SBM Service and monitor the results of the backups under his/her control. The SBM Service utilizes a built in database so no third party database server is required.


The SBMS can be installed as a 30 day trial so you may evaluate as to whether it will meet your needs:

In summary, customers need to purchase the number of licenses equivalent to the maximum number of concurrent SyncBackPro (and SBM Console) connections. For example, if you have 5 SyncBackPro installations then you will need 5 licenses for SBMS. However, if you connect to SBMS using the SBM Console at the same time all 5 installations of SyncBackPro are connected to SBMS, then you'll need 6 licenses for SBMS (as there will be a maximum of 6 concurrent connections to the SBMS server: 5 of SyncBackPro and 1 of the console).
