Universal Licensing that fits your needs


Veeam® Universal License (VUL)

is a simple, flexible “per workload” license for protecting all workloads across on-premises, hybrid and multi-cloud environments. VUL is portable across workloads, making protecting and restoring backups for any workload easier than ever, while avoiding appliance lock-in and additional fees that other vendors may charge.



VUL is sold in packs of 5 or 10 licenses and is available for Veeam Availability Suite™ and Veeam Backup & Replication™ for commercial and enterprise and Veeam Backup Essentials™ for small business.

FAQs

As the market increasingly shifts more toward multi-cloud and hybrid environments, based on the foundation of portability, subscription-type licensing is becoming an expectation. Veeam has made the commitment to customers to offer more and more products via a portable license model. The benefits of this model for customers include:

  • Universal portability: Licenses can be used interchangeably across multiple Veeam products and workloads.
  • Simplified use: Easier license ordering, management and merging capabilities.
  • Increased value: More features at a lower price per workload. Buy only what you need without the risk of locking into specific workload licenses.
  • Price predictability: Purchase multi-year contracts up front for advantaged pricing or pay annually as you go.
  • Pay per workload: Buy only what you need today and increase or decrease what you buy based on your need at the time of renewal.
  • No lock-in: If you're not satisfied, you can choose not to renew your subscription.
  • Support included: Get 24.7.365 production support for the entire term of your license at no extra cost

VUL is a portable license that can be used universally, providing users with an added element of portability, making the jump to cloud and hybrid environments even easier without any additional cloud fees.

VUL licenses are sold for a defined duration, from one- to five-year paid upfront terms or paid annually for a three-year term. These licenses can be used across a variety of Veeam products and workload types interchangeably. This licensing offers all the benefits of a pay-as-you-go license, such as the ability to start small without lock-in, and the ability to pay for what you consume using a cloud-friendly OpEx budgeting model. CapEx options are available as well.

But there are many more benefits to VUL that separates it from legacy licenses. You no longer have to purchase licenses by individual product or restricted to a specific workload type. This new model makes a variety of products and features more readily available to more users. That’s right: licenses can be used across multiple products and workloads, whether they be virtual, physical or in the cloud, so you aren’t tied to a license type or product that you don’t need. We call that portability!

Use what you want, when you need it. License portability also simplifies ordering and license management, which reduces the complexity of managing various SKUs by product or workload type.

A workload can be a VM, physical server, cloud VM, Enterprise application, NAS file share or more. With VUL, customers can use the licenses to protect any workload they need, since the licenses are portable. Customers purchase licenses, sold in minimum quantities of 5-10 licenses, and can use those licenses to protect various workloads.

The number of licenses generally needed equates to the number of workloads you are looking to protect. Most workloads require just one license instance. An exception is when you’re protecting workstations or endpoints, where one license will protect three workstations. One VUL license will also protect 500GB of NAS file capacity, or two licenses per TB. The best way to see how many licenses you need is with our license configurator. Select the product, enter your workloads and your term of your choice.

VUL licenses are sold in minimum quantities of 10 licenses. If the minimum purchase requirement of 10 licenses is a barrier, we suggest trying Veeam Backup Essentials, which is sold in 5-license bundles, up to a maximum of 50 workloads for small business needs.

VUL can be used for licensing a variety of things, and that list is growing. Effectively, these licenses can be used for protecting most workload types, including VMs and cloud-based VMs, physical servers and workstations, and enterprise application plugins. The list below shows the type of workloads that available today:

  • VMs (VMware vSphere, Hyper-V and Nutanix AHV): Veeam Backup & Replication
  • Physical servers and workstations:Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows, Linux, Mac, IBM AIX and Oracle Solaris
  • Cloud-native workloads:Veeam Backup for AWS & Microsoft Azure
  • Enterprise application support (Oracle RMAN and SAP HANA):Veeam Backup & Replication application plug-ins
  • NAS file shares:Veeam Backup & Replication
  • Monitoring:Veeam ONE, sold as part of Veeam Availability Suite or Veeam Backup Essentials

Yes. Licensing with VUL unifies backup and recovery of AWS and Azure workloads with other cloud, virtual and physical data while also delivering unlimited data portability to, from and across clouds.
