Backup & Replication want to purchase - SKU?

Post by glennsantacruz » Mar 23, 2010 3:52 pm

What is the Veeam Backup & Replication product SKU ?

I've seen at least two ( with different price points ):
S-VBU-B1-A
G-VBU-B1-A
Both of these SKUs are listed for a tier of 1-50 sockets, but I can't determine any other differences (other than cost from the reseller).

Glenn, the product is licensed per physical CPU socket on processed ESX hosts. As for specific SKUs, this is one of very few questions about our products that I cannot answer :) It would be best if you contact our sales or your preferred reseller for the quote.

Correct - I was aware of the licensing model, and I have already contacted resellers regarding a quote for the product. However, when they ask me which SKU I want, I'm at a loss - I tell them I want "Veeam backup & replication, X sockets", and they say, "Here are two sku's that fit your need - which do you want?"

I'll send a message to Veeam sales.

Hmm... it sounds like your reseller does not know the difference? They really should have provided you with information about what specific SKU is - instead of asking you to just pick SKU you like. :)

Every SKU is described in the same line, I've seen those sales docs before. I will let our sales management know of this situation.

If the difference between SKUs is not significant, my guess is that this is about different support levels (basic vs. premium). Anyhow, our sales representative will assist you now and provide with all required information.
