In the Mine with Veeam solution, Veeam Backup & Replication is licensed by the number of instances. Instances are units that you can use to protect any workloads: virtual, physical and cloud-based. For more information on Veeam Backup & Replication licensing, see Veeam Licensing Policy.
Workloads that have been processed during the past 31 days are considered to be protected. Protected workloads consume instances from the license scope that comes with the Mine with Veeam solution. The number of licenses included into the scope depends on the Mine appliance specification. For more information, see Nutanix Mine Software Documentation.
Veeam Backup & Replication keeps track of instances consumed by protected workloads. When the number of consumed instances exceeds the license limit, you get a warning in the Veeam Backup & Replication console. For more information, see Exceeding License Limit.
