This is correct. The dedicated storage node licence used to be called a
"SAN storage node". Legato changed the name because it was thought to be
confusing. Now it is named as (IMHO) the opposite of what it really
does. It's not a machine that is dedicated to the task of being a
storage node, it's dedicated to backing up a machine that also runs
applications. A total misnomer. Just try to remember that it's the
opposite of what it says and you won't go far wrong.
