vSphere standard without vSphere vCenter Server ?

Veeam Logoby qbrombeck » Tue May 10, 2016 2:26 pm

Hello,
Until today, I was using the free version of ESXi. But now, I want to make backup of my VMs using Veeam Backup and Replication Free Edition.
Actually, I have only one host ESXi, but I will not take the Essential kit of vSphere because my installation could use more than 3 hosts in the future. I would like to get vSphere Standard license for my host, but I wanted to know if it is mandatory to take the vSphere vCenter Server license. Today, I use vSphere client to manage my ESXi, so I would like to keep this tool.

Regards.

Hi,
no you can also add single ESXi hosts to Veeam server, using root credentials, as long as they are licensed so that VMware VADP libraries are available and usable.

Hi,
thanks for the reactivity and the answer. But my main question is if I buy a vSphere Standard license for my ESXi, I have to buy a vSphere vCenter Server license too ?

Regards.

This is more a VMware related question so it's best to contact a VMware sales for that. Normally you can buy them separately without a problem but best to ask them.
