VBAWS v1.0 questions

Post by abelliniSIBA » May 21, 2020 8:49 am

Hi all,

i'm discussing with the commercial rappresentative about moving my licensing mode to VUL and i'm taking in consideration my AWS environment.
How we can organize the licensing between the on-premise VEBM and VBAWS?
The licensing distribution is not clear for me (the commercial doesn't know either). Actually we have 1 VEBM (to distribute licenses) to 4 VBR (4 datacenters, around 80 VMs) plus different AWS accounts (around 50 EC2 instances).
My target is to be able to distribute the licensing workload in the whole environment (phisycal, virtual and cloud)

i'm also trying to figure out if i can setup VBAWS v1.0 to work in a multi account scenario. do you have any best practice with this architecture?

For the moment we are running CPM N2WS (veeam product) for AWS, cause can grant us guest-interaction, multi-accounts and protect RDS/Aurora/RedShift/EBS.

Any suggestion will be appreciated,

thanks!

For now, VUL license management to VB for AWS can be done via VBR but not via the Enterprise Manager. I would suggest talking to your local Veeam sales contact for more help on this level.

VB for AWS support multiple accounts, you can leverage IAM roles to add other accounts and use this to manage snapshots and create backups. How many accounts do you have so I can give you some more insight on how to set it up?

Also, N2Ws is not a Veeam company/product anymore. This is why we have created VB for AWS :-)

Cool!
Thanks for your prompt reply!

How can be done the licence distribution to VBAWS via VBR?

Actually we have a Transit VPC architecture using 7 accounts.
i see for CPM! I was thinking Veeam was investing to improve more their product, anyway having a full coverage using Veeam product will be a lovely situation for us! We are really looking for that!

Thanks a lot!

Correction, right now the licensing for VUL is done from within the product itself (more info is available in our user guide.

As suggested, please contact your local Veeam sales team about this. You'll need to use the BYOL edition to leverage VUL licenses (see https://www.veeam.com/aws-backup-pricing.html and https://aws.amazon.com/marketplace/pp/B ... duct_title).

We are actively working on the next version of VB for AWS. Any feedback will be appreciated!
