What: Free software for home labs. In an expansion of last year’s program, any VMware vExpert, VCP, VCI, VMUG member, Microsoft MVP or MCP can receive a free two-CPU socket Not for Resale (NFR) license of Veeam Backup & Replication v6 for evaluation and demonstration use.

Where: NFR licenses are available at http://www.veeam.com/nfr/free-nfr-license and http://www.veeam.com/nfr/free-nfr-license-hyper-v. “Veeam Backup & Replication v6 was downloaded more than 15 thousand times in its first week of availability, and with new support for Hyper-V, we are glad to extend our offer of NFR licenses to the Microsoft community as well as the entire VMUG community,” explained Doug Hazelman, Vice President of Product Strategy for Veeam Software. "Access to free NFR licenses of Veeam Backup & Replication is another great perk of VMUG Membership. Thank you, Veeam, for supporting the VMUG Community,” said Jim Millard, VMUG member in the Midwest. Derek Schauland, Microsoft MVP said, “Veeam for the Microsoft Community?  Awesome!
