NEW Veeam Universal License (VUL)

License Portability, Made Easy!

The Veeam® Universal License (VUL) solution allows customers to use a single type of licensing across all workloads — cloud, virtual and physical workloads, on premises and across public clouds. Customers can now more easily realize their multi-cloud strategy with this universal licensing option from Veeam. VUL takes all the portability benefits of the previous Veeam Instance Licensing and cranks it up, further simplifying the packaging and merge capabilities, all while lowering the price. 

Slightly different name. Vastly improved customer experience!

Universal portability

Universal licensing enables one portable license type to be used across cloud, virtual and physical workloads with no hassle.
  • Fully-featured “Universal” edition for simplified experience
  • Portable across workloads and locations
  • Move licenses on your own schedule
Simplified licensing

You don’t need to be a licensing expert. Centrally manage a pool of universal licenses for all your Veeam licensing needs.
  • No need for product or workload-specific licenses
  • One simple licensing unit to cover any workload

No legacy lock-in

Universal licensing is both workload and cloud-agnostic and includes the benefits of a cloud-consumption model.
  • No license lock-in with legacy workloads
  • Flexible consumption options, reuse instead of buying new
  • Subscription model, allowing reduced capex

How are Licenses Measured?

With VUL licensing, customers apply license instances to each workload that they protect.  Customers protect each workload with one license from their pool of available licenses. Veeam products are generally sold in bundles of 10 licenses and customers use their licenses for whatever workload they need to protect. One license protects one VM, one server, one cloud VM, one application server or a three pack of workstations. 

No more editions! Makes VUL easier than ever to use.
