V10 NAS Share Backup License Cost

Post by wa15 » Oct 16, 2019 5:46 pm

I remember reading in one of the forum posts by Veeam staff that there was not going to be any additional cost for the NAS backup functionality that's up and coming in V10. However, I see in the VUL notes that it's 250GB front end capacity per license? It's disappointing to see Veeam change their stance on licensing over time. I understand prices change but setting expectations and then changing things around a while after is frustrating.

Actually, there are no changes since the forum post you mentioned - the article just describes the types of workload you can spend the VUL on.

Say, you have VUL license of 10 instances. With it you can protect: 10 VMs, or 10 Servers, or 2500 GB of NAS, or 5 VMs plus 5 Servers, or 5 Servers plus 1250 GB, of NAS, or spend these instances in any other combination of workloads.

So, there is no additional separate license requirement for NAS backup - it's just going to be another type of workload that can be covered with VUL.

Thanks!
