A workload can be a virtual machine (VM), physical server, cloud VM, enterprise application, NAS file share and more. With VUL, customers can use their licenses to protect any workload, since the licenses are portable. Customers purchase licenses, sold in minimum quantities of five to 10, and they can use these licenses to protect various workloads.
The number of licenses generally needed equates to the number of workloads you are looking to protect. Most workloads require just one license instance. An exception would be when you’re protecting workstations or endpoints; in this case, one license would protect three workstations. One VUL license will also protect 500 GB of NAS file capacity, which equates to two licenses per TB. The best way to see how many licenses you need is with our license configurator. Select the product, enter your workloads and your term length of choice.
VUL licenses are sold in minimum quantities of 10 licenses. If the minimum purchase requirement of 10 licenses is a barrier, we suggest trying Veeam Backup Essentials™, which is sold in five-license bundles for up to a maximum of 50 workloads for small business needs.
