Product Editions

Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows offers three product editions that define product functionality and operation modes:

  • Server — a commercial edition that provides access to all product functions. The Server edition is intended for performing data protection tasks on servers that run Microsoft Windows OS. To use the Server edition of Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows, you must obtain and install on the protected computer a paid license that supports this product edition.
  • Workstation — a commercial edition that offers capabilities for performing data protection tasks on desktop computers and laptops that run Microsoft Windows OS. To use the Workstation edition of Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows, you must obtain and install on the protected computer a paid license that supports this product edition.
  • Free — a free edition that offers limited capabilities sufficient for personal use of the product. In contrast to Workstation and Server editions, the free edition does not require a license.

For more information about product editions, pricing and features available for them, see the Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows product page on the Veeam web site at https://www.veeam.com/.

When you install a license on the protected computer, you can select the product edition of Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows: Workstation or Server (if both editions are supported by the license). To learn more, see Selecting Product Edition.

If you use Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows with Veeam Backup & Replication, you should manage product licenses and editions from the Veeam Backup & Replication console. To learn more, see Managing License with Veeam Backup & Replication.

After the license expires, Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows automatically switches to the free edition. If you have used backup job options available for Workstation and Server editions, you must disable these options in the properties of the backup job. Otherwise, the backup job will be failing.
