Part of Veeam Availability Suite
This latest release of Veeam Backup & Replication 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 much more!
Veeam Backup & Replication licenses are purchased on a perpetual basis with basic or production maintenance, or a subscription license which includes 24x7 Production Support.
Perpetual licenses of Veeam Backup & Replication 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 Backup & Replication 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. VM templates are licensed as regular VMs.
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 Backup 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 given 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 in order to receive a merged license file.
