Veeam 9.5 + SQL 2016 Standard Licence

Veeam Logoby PariPari » Tue Dec 13, 2016 11:57 am

Hey,

I am planning an environment for a customer. We will backup Databases larger than 10GB, so SQL Express might not be sufficient for the use with Veeam Explorer.
Does anyone know what SQL licence I will need for the physical Veeam Backup Server? Server + 1 Cal?

regards

Hi,for database larger 10GB you need Standard license of SQL.
I would suggest reading this section of the best practices book.

Uhm, yes i know :-) The Question was what SQL Licence model i need for this.
We got the info, that we need a SQL Server Licence + one User Cal per Admin that uses the Veeam Backup Console

The way CAL licensing works, you need one for every application and user that accesses the database. So if you are just using Backup & Replication - 1 for B&R and 1 for each user that accesses the console.

If you are using VeeamONE and Enterprise Manager you would probably need one each for those to not run afoul of MS.

Since SQL CALs are, iirc, for concurrent users you could probably get away with the application ones plus what you think would be the average number of concurrent users and be ok.

SQL CALs aren't concurrent, it's per named user or device. You can read more about how CALs work here: http://download.microsoft.com/download/ ... _EN_US.pdf
