This is not an April Fool’s joke! Last year, Veeam launched the not-for-resale (NFR) promotion for VMware VCPs, VCIs and vExperts (VCAPs and VCDXs as well). This provides VMware community members 2 sockets of two popular Veeam products. This is a very successful program, but in case you haven’t heard, the VMware community can still have NFR licensing for Veeam Backup & Replication v5 and Veeam ONE.
There is only one guideline for this program:
A NFR license can only be used in non-production environment and for evaluation, demonstration and training purposes only.
These are the perfect tools for a VMware lab environment. Veeam Backup & Replication v5 is great for backup and restore capability. Plus, this offering of Veeam ONE includes three products: Veeam Monitor, Veeam Reporter and Veeam Business View which provide great visibility into the VMware environment.
