Managing Licensed Instances

In this article

    After you add a Veeam Backup for AWS appliance to the Veeam Backup & Replication infrastructure, you can monitor the number of protected workloads and how many license instances they consume in the Veeam Backup & Replication console. You can also revoke licenses from protected workloads if you do not want to protect these workloads.

    Monitoring Licensed Workloads

    To monitor the number of protected workloads and the number of license instances they consume, do the following:

    1. In the Veeam Backup & Replication console, expand the main menu and select License.
    2. In the License Information window, switch to the Instances tab.

    You will see the following details:

    • Type — type of protected workloads.
    • Cloud VMs — protected EC2 instances.
    • Cloud Databases — protected RDS instances.
    • Cloud File Shares — protected EFS file systems.
    • Count —  number of workloads.
    • Multiplier — number of license instances one workload consumes.
    • Instances — total number of the consumed license instances.

    Revoking License Instances

    You can revoke licenses from protected workloads and reapply them to other objects that you plan to protect. License revoking can be helpful, for example, if a licensed workload goes out of service or you do not want to protect it anymore.

    To revoke a license, do the following:

    1. From the main menu, select License.
    2. In the License Information window, open the Instances tab and click Manage.
    1. In the displayed window, select a protected workload and click Revoke. Veeam Backup & Replication will revoke the license from the selected object, and the license will be freed for other workloads that you want to protect.
