Licensing question for Tape Backups

Veeam Logoby Rockford » Thu Nov 13, 2014 5:26 am

We are in the process of purchasing a Veeam licence for one of our sites. It is 3 physical servers with ESX (no HA) on them and a physical server with a tape drive in it.

So we are unsure whether we need Enterprise or Standard with only the tape handling capabilities being the sticking point. Using V8 we have created a Backup to Tape Job and it is has the Disk Based backup jobs as it’s ‘source’. Is this doable on Standard or do we need Enterprise? Does the trial version tell us which version’s features we are using? (it is showing Enterprise Plus)

I don’t want to buy Standard only to find out it doesn’t do what we want, on the flip side it is nearly half the price so I don’t want to buy Enterprise when we don’t really need it.
