VUL is a portable license that can be used universally. It provides users with the added element of portability, which makes the jump to cloud and hybrid environments even easier without additional cloud fees.
VUL licenses are sold for a defined duration; one- to five-year terms paid up-front or three-year terms paid annually. These licenses can be used interchangeably across a variety of Veeam products and workload types. This licensing offers all the benefits of a pay-as-you-go license, like the ability to start small without lock-ins and the ability to pay-as-you-go with a cloud-friendly OpEx budgeting model. CapEx options are available as well.
There are many more benefits to VUL that separates it from legacy licenses. You no longer have to purchase licenses by individual products or ones that are restricted to a specific workload type. This new model makes a variety of products and features more readily available to more users. This means that licenses can be used across multiple products and workloads, whether they be virtual, physical or in the cloud. You aren’t tied to a license type or to a product you don’t need — now that's portability!
Use what you want, when you need it. License portability simplifies ordering and license management, which reduces the complexity of managing multiple SKUs by product or workload type.
