VUL is a portable license that can be used universally, across a variety of workload types in the Veeam Data Platform. It provides users with the added element of portability, which makes the jump to hybrid and multi cloud environments even easier without challenges or additional cloud fees. VUL is sold in annually subscriptions that allow users to start small, and grow confidently without lock-in. Use what you want, when and where you need it. License portability simplifies ordering and license management, which reduces the complexity of managing multiple SKUs by product or workload type.
There are many 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!
