The Veeam Backup & Replication infrastructure requires license instances to process backup and replication jobs.

When you run a job, Veeam Backup & Replication uses an amount of instances which is stated for each type of protected workloads (for per-instance licenses) or applies a license to the protected hosts (for per-socket licenses).

Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager collects information about the type of license installed on Veeam backup servers connected to it and the amount of instances left. When Veeam Enterprise Manager replicates databases from backup servers, it also synchronizes license data (that is, checks if the license installed on the Veeam backup server coincides with the license installed on the Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager server). If the licenses do not coincide, the license on the Veeam backup server is automatically updated with that on the Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager server.

Licensing Note:

For more information about Veeam Backup & Replication license types, see the Licensing section of the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.

For information on Veeam Cloud Connect license types and license management tasks, see the Licensing for Service Providers section of the Veeam Cloud Connect User Guide.

For more information on licensing, see Veeam Licensing Policy.

Using the Licensing section of the Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager UI reduces administration overhead. You can manage and activate licenses for the whole backup infrastructure from a single web console. You can view to which machines the instances are currently applied, install a new license file, or revoke the licenses.
