Licensing, renewal

As an added convenience, Veeam provides multiple licensing options. Veeam Backup Essentials can be licensed perpetually in 2-socket bundles with a maximum of 3 bundles (up to 6 total CPU sockets) on hosts where VMs to be backed up and/or replicated reside. It can also be purchased through one- to five-year instance licenses for a range of 10 to 50 instances, packaged in bundles of 5 instances. Target hosts (for replication and migration jobs) do not need to be licensed.
