Includes Veeam Backup & Replication and Veeam ONE
This latest release of Veeam Availability Suite offers customers the ability to manage and protect ALL workloads — virtual, physical, cloud — from a single Veeam pane of glass. It also features new strategic partnerships and storage integrations with IBM Spectrum Virtualize and Lenovo Storage V Series to lower RTOs and RPOs, plus new data management, analytics and compliance reporting for physical and cloud-based workloads.
Licenses for Veeam Availability Suite are purchased on a perpetual basis with basic or production maintenance, or a subscription license which includes 24x7 Production Support.
Perpetual licenses of Veeam Availability Suite are licensed per CPU socket on hosts with virtual machines (VMs) to be backed up, replicated, monitored or reported on. A license is required for each occupied motherboard socket as reported by the hypervisor API.
Subscription licenses of Veeam Availability Suite are licensed per VM. There are one- to five-year subscription licenses available, and customers can choose to purchase the entire subscription up front, or pay annually.
Note: Target hosts (for replication and migration jobs) do not need to be licensed.
No. Only one edition, Standard, Enterprise, or Enterprise Plus, can be used in the same physical location. Furthermore, all licensed editions must be the same across multiple locations to manage them through one Veeam Enterprise Manager.
This requirement applies to all Veeam Backup & Replication deployments, including multi-hypervisor environments. For example, if you have five licenses for vSphere and five licenses for Hyper-V in a location, all 10 licenses must be either Standard, Enterprise or Enterprise Plus.
Current customers who wish to upgrade to Enterprise or Enterprise Plus must upgrade all current licenses to receive a merged license file.
Customers with perpetual licenses of Veeam Backup & Replication who are current on maintenance, and customers with subscription licenses can upgrade to Veeam Availability Suite at a price that takes their original investment in Veeam Backup & Replication into consideration. Contact your Veeam sales representative to request the upgrade.
For perpetual license holders, as part of the upgrade, you will receive one year of basic support for Veeam ONE. Maintenance for your Veeam Backup & Replication and Veeam ONE licenses should be co-termed to facilitate a single-support expiration date for all components of your Veeam Availability Suite. For those interested in upgrading a subscription license, support is already included.
To take advantage of all the integrated features in 9.5, you must be running 9.5 for both products.
