Canister supports multiple tape decks being connected to the same computer, and they can all be used at the same time.

The standard Canister license allows for two activations, so you can keep two computers activated while using only one at a time. If you need to move your deck between more than two computers, you can use the online License Manager to remotely deactivate computers.

For multiple computers with each its own LTO deck, you'll need multiple seats. Reach out for a custom order link.

Chances are you have a license that starts with id and ends with ods or uks. This is a legacy license, and cannot be used with versions newer than 20.1. Contact us for an upgrade coupon or continue to use the now-legacy Canister 20.1.
