License Question

Post by jorgene »

I have question regarding licensing on Hyper-V.
For example Enterprise Exist in the following modes (Tier A and B)

Veeam Backup & Replication Enterprise for Hyper-V Tier A (1-6 cores)
Veeam Backup & Replication Enterprise for Hyper-V Tier B (7-12 cores)

Now how does the cores count for the license? Actual cores in the CPU or cores shown by operating system ?
For example a Quad Core (4 cores) CPU which have Hyper Threading activated displays 8 Cores
in the OS. Which license do i need ? A or B ?

Hi, its actual physical cores per CPU specification. You need Tier A. Thanks!
