Nutanix AHV 2.x licensing

Post by tedsteenvoorden »

Hello all,

I have a question regarding licensing of Veeam Backup for Nutanix AHV 2.x.

Documentation of Veeam Backup for Nutanix AHV 2.x. states the following license types can be used:

- For per-instance licenses (Veeam Universal Licensing)
- For per-socket licenses (Perpetual Socket license)

The Veeam licensing FAQ (https://www.veeam.com/faq.html) states:

Does Veeam offer socket licenses for Veeam Agents, VBR Nutanix AHV Backup Proxy, Veeam Availability Orchestrator or Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365?
No, these products are not available with per-socket licenses.


My customer currently uses Veeam Backup & Replicator with vSphere and is transitioning towards Nutanix. Veeam Backup & Replicator is currently licensed using socket based licensing.

Just to be sure, can the current license be continued, or are some additional steps required?

I think, you will have to convert your customers socket licenses to VUL.
Your distributor or Veeam sale representative can help you with the correct license type and conversion if needed.

Thanks for the feedback Mildur. Anybody from Veeam who can confirm if per-socket licenses can be continued or whether additional steps are required?

Hi Ted,

Fabian is correct, you will need to migrate to the VUL-key when protecting Nutanix workloads.

Thanks!
