Veeam Enterprise Manager License: What You Need to Know
Veeam Enterprise Manager is a web-based console that allows you to manage and monitor multiple Veeam backup servers from a single location. It also simplifies the license management for the entire backup infrastructure, as you can install and update licenses on all connected backup servers with a few clicks. In this article, we will explain the different types of licenses available for Veeam Enterprise Manager, how they work, and how to install and manage them.
Types of Licenses for Veeam Enterprise Manager
Veeam Enterprise Manager supports two types of licenses: Perpetual Socket and Universal License (VUL). The type of license you need depends on the type of workloads you want to protect with Veeam Backup & Replication.
Perpetual Socket License: This license is based on the number of CPU sockets on the hosts where the protected VMs reside. It is suitable for customers who only want to protect VMware or Hyper-V VMs. The license is perpetual, meaning that you pay once and own it forever. However, you need to renew your maintenance contract annually to receive technical support and product updates.
Universal License (VUL): This license is based on the number of protected workloads, regardless of their type or location. A workload can be a VM, physical server, cloud VM, enterprise application, NAS file share, and more. With VUL, you can use your licenses to protect any workload, as the licenses are portable. For example, you can use one license to protect a VMware VM today, and then use the same license to protect a physical server or a cloud VM tomorrow. The license is subscription-based, meaning that you pay annually or monthly for the number of licenses you need.
