Community Edition and Full Version

Veeam Backup & Replication is available in two versions: full version and Community (free) edition.

  • When you run Veeam Backup & Replication in the full version, you get a commercial version of the product that provides access to all product functions (the list of available features depends on the product edition).

For information about product editions, pricing and features available for them, see Veeam Editions Comparison.

  • When you run Veeam Backup & Replication in the Community edition, you get a free version of the product that allows you to use 10 instances to protect your workloads.

For more information, see Veeam Backup & Replication Community Edition.

If you have a valid license installed on the backup server, Veeam Backup & Replication operates in the full version. As soon as your license expires, Veeam Backup & Replication will notify you about it. If you do not purchase a new paid license, the following measures will be taken:

  • [For evaluation and NFR licenses] Veeam Backup & Replication will switch to the Community edition.
  • [For paid licenses] Functionality that is provided in the Enterprise and Enterprise Plus editions of Veeam Backup & Replication will not be available. Workloads will not be processed by existing jobs (jobs will fail with the Error status). However, you will be able to restore machine data from existing backups.
