question about subscription/rent licence for only 2 VMs

Post by User56 »

Hello,

Customer has only one HyperV host Win2016 and 2x Win2016 VMs

The tariff for rental / subscription Veeam license has changed so that you can not do this anymore: Veeam rental license to secure 2x VMs "
You have to min. Buy quantity 10 licences. Customer had last year quantity 2 "can rental"
The best way would be purchase of rount 700€ licence right?

Hi,

Can you clarify which backup features your customer is utilizing?
Since it seems that all he needs is Veeam Backup and Replication Community Edition. Thanks!

Hi User56,

There is a new instance-based licensing model that was recently introduced with B&R 9.5 Update 4 release. I would recommend you to take a look at this FAQ, Veeam Licensing Policy (note the conversion tables), and Instances Calculator that all together will make the licensing aspects a bit more clear.

In your situation (just two VMs) the best options are:

1. New "B&R Community Edition" - 10 instances at no cost, the same functionality as B&R Standard Edition offers.

2. "Backup Essentials" 2x bundles - 10 instances for 348
* Also not that Veeam Backup Essentials includes not just B&R, it also offers extensive monitoring capabilities delivered by Veeam ONE, but has additional limitations (6 sockets, 30 instances can be purchased at max).

3. B&R Standard - 10 instances for 435 - no limits for further expansion at the cost of Veeam ONE monitoring.

Regards,
Fedor

Hi,

Veeam Backup and Replication Community Edition >
sounds very nice thx. Any limitations about this free version regarding "running sql databases?"

We have a SQL 2015 Standard on Windows Server 2016.

Hi User56,

You can treat Community Edition as Standard Edition - no differences here in terms of capabilities, especially those related to SQL protection.

Regards,
Fedor
