Veeam VUL Clarification

Post by ARycroft »


Please can you clarify for me, if I am using the Veeam VUL licenses, and I have a virtualised database server do I need 2 VULs, one for the database and one for the Virtual Machine?

Kind regards

Hi Andrew

No, a single VUL will be used for the entire machine. Even if you use different backup methods (plugin, agent, vm image) for this machine.

Hello Andrew,
No, you will need just one even if you protect this server as normal VM, plus with an agent installed to do some more granular Application-aware.

Give it a try and let us know, this question is answered on the FAQ if I am not mistaken.
