Question about VEEAM licensing

Veeam Logoby lotfi213 » Thu Dec 15, 2016 12:52 pm

In different places i read that the VEEAM license depends on the number of processor sockets or processor cores. But in VEEAM FAQ, they give an example of with 2 ESX servers where both of them has 2 quadcore processors. Which means that there must be :

2 ESX-Servers * 2-Processors * 4-Cores = 16 sockets.

Am i right or not, please?
If not, can anyone explain that to me?

Thanks in advance.

The number of cores per CPU doesn't matter since we charge for sockets only.
In your example, a 4 sockets license is required regardless of how many cores you have.

Feel free to reach out to our sales reps for any assistance with licensing.
