Qlik Sense Enterprise license for multiple deployments

Is it possible to use the same Qlik Sense Enterprise license in several deployments? For example, for Disaster Recovery scenarios or to isolate DEV / TEST / PROD.

The license model is Professional / Analyzer passes.

This would then apply .. which means, if the 'other' backup and recovery systems would be continually 'running' then they need their own licenses.

If you have servers as backups, and then turn them off, then they can use the 'same' license. However, there is a  reasonable approach to this as well; servers with duplicate licenses could come online periodically, as necessary, to maintain their equivalence to the main servers they are backing up. It is reasonable to bring them online to ensure that the backup servers are viable -- yet not require its own separate license.    

License keys can be installed on as many servers as required for backup or disaster recovery purposes. However, no  more than the licensed quantity of Software may be running at any given time. Thus, a cold standby environment can be installed and ready to run, but cannot be live (that is, the Windows services cannot be started) and in use prior to the live environment being shut down.

Update- Using a Signed license:

A signed license applied on several sites is used to synchronize users licenses allocations across these sites. It's useful when you have a multi geographic deployment by centralizing the license management or for multi-cloud. The sites need to be parts of a same environment or need to have the same users. (development)

Ho @Eddie_L , thanks for your answer!

So, for a Disaster Recovery scenario (i.e. two independent Qlik Sense installations, but with same users, content, security, etc), could I use the same license?

From your first post, I understood that the answer was "No", but your second post confuses me...

Thanks!

In your license type are you allocating licenses to users? (i.e. tokens/professional/analyzer)

We are using professional / analyzer licenses.
