Veeam offers the flexibility to choose between Perpetual and Instance licenses for all three editions, however, you cannot mix license editions. For more information, refer to the End User Licensing Agreement.
As an added convenience, Veeam provides multiple licensing options. Veeam Availability Suite™ can be licensed perpetually by the total number of CPU sockets on hosts where virtual machines (VMs) that are to be backed up and/or replicated reside, or per-Instance through one- to five-year Instance licenses. Target hosts (for replication and migration jobs) do not need to be licensed.
Instance licenses include 24.7.365 maintenance (including technical support and product updates), while perpetual licenses initially include one year of maintenance (a 20% or more value).
