NEW Veeam Universal License (VUL)

A single portable license for protecting all workloads!

Veeam® Universal License (VUL) is a simple, flexible “per workload” license for protecting all workloads across on-premises, hybrid and multi-cloud environments. VUL is portable across workloads, making protecting and restoring backups for any workload easier than ever, while avoiding appliance lock-in and additional fees that other vendors may charge.

VUL is sold in packs of 5 or 10 licenses and is available for Veeam Availability Suite™ and
Veeam Backup & Replication™ for commercial and enterprise
and Veeam Backup Essentials™
for small business.
