How are Licenses Measured?

With VUL licensing, customers apply licenses to each workload they choose to protect. Customers protect each workload with one license from their pool of available licenses. Veeam packages VUL in bundles of 5 -10 license instances and customers use their licenses to protect whatever workload they need to protect. One license protects one VM, one server, one cloud instance/VM/database, one application server, a three-pack of workstations/endpoints or 500GB of NAS data.
