License Limitations

Before installing Microsoft Azure Plug-in for Veeam Backup & Replication, mind the following limitations for Veeam Backup & Replication licenses.

Not Supported Licenses

The functionality of Microsoft Azure Plug-in for Veeam Backup & Replication is NOT supported:

  • If Veeam Backup & Replication uses the Veeam Cloud Connect service provider license
  • In the Community Edition of Veeam Backup & Replication

Limitations for Veeam Backup & Replication Licensed by Sockets

If you use Veeam Backup & Replication with a Perpetual per-socket license and you want to connect a Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure appliance to the Veeam Backup & Replication infrastructure, you must install an additional Perpetual per-instance license or a subscription license. When you install an additional license, the new license merges with the existing Perpetual per-socket license. For details on the merging process, see the Merging Licenses section in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.

If you do not install an additional Perpetual per-instance license or a subscription license, you will be able to use one free instance license per each socket (but maximum 6 free instances for all sockets). After you exceed the limit of free instances, Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure backup policies start to fail.

To obtain an additional license, contact a Veeam sales representative at Sales Inquiry.

There is a misspelling right here:

 

I want to let the Veeam Documentation Team know about that.
