As per this link: https://go.veeam.com/promo-hybrid-cloud it shows the Veeam agent v2.0 is free just for one year.
is that correct ?
What happened after that time expires?

Hi Albert,

After that you can pay for the solution if you want to continue to use the features. Obviously you can also stop using the functionality in the paid products and go back to the free edition or stop using it at all

Brgds,

Hi Mike,

Thanks for the response, so what's the limitation when it is running under the free edition ?

Hi Albert,

In this blog post Clint has a part that explains the differences between the 3 editions. If you have a specific question around those, let us know

Cheers

License managed by B&R is a Workstation license. Do I have to purchase a Workstation license when the Beta expires?

If you want to have Workstation edition than yes, otherwise you can use Free edition which does not require the license.

Wow, that is so awesome :D
Veeam is the most generous Enterprise backup software that I know of.

keep up the good works.

I want to use B&R as a repository for VAW backups. Do I have to purchase a Workstation license when the Beta expires?

Hi Technogod,

Nope, even when using a B&R repository it is not necessary to have a workstation license (you do have a VBR setup today? Licensed?). Our current version (VEB 1.5) already support this also

Thanks

I am using B&R 9.5.0.823 Free and VEB 1.5. When I try to create a backup to Veeam Backup & Replication Repository the following error occurs.

4/27/2017 1:49:05 PM :: Error: Veeam agents can only use advanced backup functionality when backing up to licensed versions of Veeam Backup & Replication.

Hi Technogod,

Are you using VEB or VAW? Or have you tested with VAW before with that same B&R server?

From what I understand you need a licensed version of either Veeam Agent or a licensed version of Veeam Backup and Replication

That is what I've found in my testing. I'm hoping once VAW is released it will be able to backup to a B&R Free repository.

No changes here - just like with VEB today, free VAW agent will not be able to backup into B&R free repository. You need to license either the agent or B&R to enable this scenario (with VEB, you had to license B&R - now with VAW you have two options). Thanks!
