1.5. Combining Socket and Instance licenses in Veeam Backup & Replication

Customers who need to combine purchased Socket and Instance licenses into one License Key can do so on the Customer Portal (https://my.veeam.com). Read more about License Key merges.

Starting with version 10, Veeam Backup & Replication allows installing separate Socket and Instance License Keys at the same time without prior merging of keys at the customer portal. The following conditions will apply:

  • Both Socket and Instance licenses are valid product licenses
  • Company name matches between licenses
  • Socket License Key will define the Support level, Support ID and Product Edition
  • Only one Socket and one Instance License Key can be installed into the product at the same time
  • Sockets will only protect VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V VMs

Instances, when in the presence of sockets, will protect NAS, Agents, Plug-Ins, AHV and Cloud VMs, and any workload excluding VMware and Hyper-V VMs.

Instance license expiration will, following the grace period, disable all product functionality until the expired license is removed from the product installation.

Socket license support expiration will not have any impact on the product’s functionality, except for the limitation to install product updates shipped after the support expiration date.

Important note: To receive Production Support for combined license, the Socket license must be at the Production Support and Maintenance level. 

1.6. Product Edition

When present, Product Edition of the license regulates the Software capabilities level. In case when both Perpetual per Socket and Subscription VUL licenses are installed, the Software will follow the Perpetual License edition.

1.7. Downgrades

  1. Only Customers who are current on Support and Maintenance are eligible for a downgrade.
  2.  Veeam does not refund the difference in price for downgrades.
  3. Offering Downgrades are only offered for Perpetual Licenses, may require a downgrade SKU, and a penalty or fee may be charged.
  4. Product Edition Downgrades have no penalty or fee. Support and Maintenance expiration date(s) and licensing terms are not altered in the event of Product Edition Downgrade. Downgrades to Product Editions that Customer does not currently own are not available.
  5. Support and Maintenance Downgrades are not available.

For more information, please contact Veeam Renewals at renewals@veeam.com.

1.8. Upgrades

  1. Only Customers who are current on Support and Maintenance are eligible for upgrades.
  2. Upgrades may require a fee — even in cases where Customer is upgrading to what they were previously entitled to.
  3. Product Edition Upgrades are only offered for Perpetual Licenses and may require an upgrade SKU.
  4. Product Edition Upgrades to Enterprise Plus Product Edition are available. Product Edition Upgrades to Enterprise Product Edition are not available unless Customer currently owns Enterprise Product Edition.

1.9. License Purchase Terms

Except as expressly agreed otherwise, Veeam reserves the right to change Packaging and Pricing as needed without advanced or written notification and price changes are not enforced retroactively. Except as expressly agreed otherwise, renewals or extensions of Perpetual License Support and Maintenance or Subscription Licenses will be at Veeam’s list price in effect at the time of the applicable renewal. Renewal prices that incur volume or term decreases will result in repricing based on current market price without regard to prior Pricing.

1.10. Migrations

Customers with “Active” Support and Maintenance Agreement may migrate their Socket-based Veeam Backup & Replication, Veeam Availability Suite or Veeam Backup Essentials Perpetual License to a Veeam Universal License (VUL) Subscription for additional benefits.

For more information, please contact Veeam Renewals by submitting a form at https://www.veeam.com/renewal.html.

1.11. Veeam License Keys

Veeam issues License Key for each license purchased. The End User is authorized to use each License Key to activate and use the Software within the parameters of this Licensing Policy according to this License Policy terms.

Veeam License Key contains specific licensing terms and a signature record that proves the integrity of the License Key file for the product. Only those License Keys that are marked as “Active” in Veeam’s records are considered legitimate and valid License Keys. Customer’s Active License Keys are always visible on the Customer Portal.

In the event where a License Key is revoked and a written confirmation has been sent, Customer must stop usage of License Key.

Please refer to technical documentation for product license installation help. The Veeam License Key defines the maximum number of License Units for the Software to consume or process from all objects of the connected Source Infrastructure.

Customers can use copies of the Software and one License Key to manage same or multiple Source Infrastructures. In this scenario, Customers are required to implement centralized license management (for example, Veeam Enterprise Manager) to control total license consumption and compliance with the licensing terms.

Customers can use multiple License Keys with different license terms, but only for separate backup infrastructures (which are defined as not sharing servers or storage between each other and are protecting different Source infrastructures). Veeam centralized management is not available/allowed for such use cases. In these cases, Customers will be provided with separate license files for each separate backup infrastructure.

With certain conditions, Customers can combine License Keys with different license terms to manage multiple Source Infrastructures with the same backup infrastructure. Customers are advised to implement centralized license management (Veeam Enterprise Manager) to control total license consumption and compliance with the licensing terms.

1.11.1. License Start Date

The license expiration date and license support expiration date are calculated from the license start date which is the date when Veeam accepts the Purchase Order from distribution and delivers the License Key to the Customer portal at https://my.veeam.com

When purchasing a renewal of Perpetual or Subscription Licenses, the updated License Keys become available at the Customer portal. If the License Key auto-update functionality is enabled, the updated License Key will be installed into the product automatically. 

1.11.2. License Key Merge

Customers that are current on maintenance have an option to merge several Production License Keys into a single License Key to use in a product installation. Merge functionality for current versions is available at Customer Portal (https://my.veeam.com). For cases when merge is required for older versions of Veeam products, the Licensing support case needs to be opened.

When several License Keys are merged, the lowest Edition terms are selected for the resulting key (e.g. merging a 10 Socket Standard Edition license with the Veeam Universal License will result in a Standard Edition License Key). Similarly, the earliest license expiration date and support expiration date with respective Support ID will be provided.

License Key merge is only available for compatible licenses with up-to-date License Administrator information.

To revert the License Key merge operation, Customers may choose “Undo merge” to destroy the merged license and revert to original product License Keys.

Below are clarifications and exceptions to general merge rules: 

License Key merge exception Merge rules
Veeam Backup Essentials This product offering is not allowed for merging between License Types or with other products.
Veeam Backup Starter This product offering is not allowed for merging between License Types or with other products. This product will no longer be offered on October 1, 2020. Support will be discontinued with v11 release. 
Veeam Universal Licenses

Merge is allowed between Veeam Universal Licenses and other types of supported licenses.

The resulting License Key will contain combined License Units from Perpetual and Subscription Licenses. 

Legacy Instance licenses will be re-calculated based one-to-one match (e.g. 10 Instances Standard Edition will match 10 Instances of Veeam Universal Licenses).

All other License Key parameters will follow License Key merge rules.

Merging License Keys with Sockets and Instances

Customers can combine Socket Perpetual and Instance Subscription License Keys to use with previous versions of the Veeam Backup & Replication. Below are merging directions for resulting key:

  • License type: Subscription
  • License expiration: the earliest expiration date of selected Instance Subscriptions License Keys
  • Support expiration: the earliest support expiration date of all involved licenses
  • Support ID: Socket Perpetual License Key with the earliest support expiration date.

Please note that:

  • Sockets will be used to protect VMs on VMware and Hyper-V hosts
  • Instances will cover Agents, Plug-Ins, AHV VMs, excluding VMware and Hyper-V VMs.
1.11.3. License Auto-update
Customers who enable the license auto-update feature will benefit from having automatic installation of Software updates and version upgrades, if their Subscription or Support and Maintenance Agreement is current. If separate environments are merged, please contact support to understand how this will affect the auto-update function. 
1.11.4. Legacy Licenses 
In case a Customer on maintenance needs a License Key for a legacy product version Veeam may provide such a License Key, with the condition that the License terms and License Units are available for that legacy product version. Please see if the “Previous version” action is available for the License Key on the Customer portal.
1.11.5. Promotional License Key
When Veeam gives a free production license or adds licenses/features at no cost for a limited time, the duration of the offer is defined by the promotion’s specific terms and conditions or by the License Key parameters. Promotional licenses do not change any pre-existing licensing agreement for paid products.
1.11.6. License Transfer

In accordance with the EULA, Veeam licenses are non-transferable. Requests for exceptions to this policy should be submitted by the License Administrator through a licensing case on the Customer Portal (https://my.veeam.com/).

1.13. Source Infrastructure

Customers can use copies of the Software under the same License Key and license terms to manage same or multiple Source Infrastructures. In this scenario, Customers are required to implement centralized license management (for example, Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager) to control total license consumption and compliance with the licensing terms.

Sharing of the Source Infrastructure between different Licenses and license terms is prohibited.

1.14. Licensed Objects

Licensed Objects are associated with License Units by the Software. Some Software allows revoking License Units from Licensed Objects and re-applying to other License Objects. For example, you can revoke the license from some hosts or virtual machines (VMs) and assign it to other hosts or VMs.

For Customers with an active maintenance contract, Veeam may provide a copy of the Software and the license file for supported versions in response to a Customer request. Customers with expired maintenance contracts may not be granted such a service.

2.5. Support 

Veeam has three support programs which may or may not be available for all Offerings: Premier, Production, and Basic. Additionally, there is an Evaluation support program for 30 days following product downloads. Each program provides a guarantee for support via Web, E-mail and Phone, and the ability to open cases via Web or Phone. Support for Customers with the Community Edition/Free License/NFR licensed products is provided on a best-effort basis. For more information, please refer to the Veeam Customer Support Policy.

New product releases and maintenance updates are also available only to Customers with a current maintenance contract. Product updates may be refused by the Software where the License Key Support Expiration date has past.

Support level for Customers always defaults to their lowest contracted level. For example, if a Customer has 90% of their licenses contracted to Production Support and 10% of their licenses contracted to Basic Support, Veeam will only provide Basic Support.

2.6. Support and Maintenance Included in License Types

2.12. Maintenance Upgrades

Customers who upgrade Product Editions which have future years of support remaining on the product contract must also purchase annual and monthly edition maintenance upgrade SKUs to cover the price difference between previous and new product.

2.13. Expired Maintenance & Reinstatement Fee
