Types of Licenses

Veeam Software offers the following types of licenses for Veeam Backup & Replication:

Paid Licenses

  • Subscription license — license that expires at the end of the subscription term. The Subscription license term is normally 1-3 years from the date of license issue.
  • Perpetual license — permanent license. The support and maintenance period included with the license is specified in months or years. Typically, one year of basic support and maintenance is included with the Perpetual license.
  • Rental license — license with the license expiration date set according to the chosen rental program (normally 1-12 months from the date of license issue). The Rental license can be automatically updated upon expiration.

Rental licenses are provided to Veeam Cloud & Service Providers (VCSPs) only. For more information, see the Rental License section in the Veeam Cloud Connect Guide.
