V6 License question, "Managed Server" = ?

Post by mike143 »

Per the V6 Release Notes: "Veeam Backup is licensed per CPU Socket ("CPU Sockets") for each Managed Server. For more information, see

I understand you pay for a license(s) for each VM host that you backup.

With the new structure of V6 do you need to pay for licensing of the following?

Veeam Backup & Replication Server
Backup Proxy Server
Backup Repository Server
Veeam Backup & Replication Enterprise Manager
Veeam Backup Search Server
Backup Target

Essentially which components are considered a "Managed Server"?

FYI: Seems like Veeam site is getting hit pretty hard, must be all the downloads :-)

The vShpere or Hyper-V hosts you are backing up/replicating from are "Managed Servers". All other components are simply part of the solution and are included at the license level you purchase (either Standard or Enterprise).

Just wanted to add that only "Source" hosts are those "Managed servers". "Target" hosts (such as in case with replication or migration) do not have to be licensed. Thanks!
