Licensing Per-VM Question

Post by mandarb » Feb 27, 2018 5:28 pm

Good afternoon,

I have been looking to switch backup systems, but I am a bit confused by the per-vm licensing. Does this pertain only to the machines you choose to backup, or the total number VMs you have running on the host(s)?

If I have 25 vm's in my cluster, but only want to use Veeam to backup my SQL, Exchange, and SharePoint servers, can I license JUST those VM's, or do I need a license for every VM I have running in the cluster whether I back them up or not? In which case, going to a per-core license would be far more cost effective.

Thanks for the help!

This.

Correct.

Thanks.

You're welcome. If you have more licensing specific question, don't hesitate to contact your sales representative as well. Thanks!
