Veeam MP for Hyper-V is licensed per a CPU socket. A CPU socket is defined as a single physical processor chip on a Hyper-V host in the monitored environment. The Veeam MP for Hyper-V solution does not take into account the number of cores on a physical CPU. The minimum purchase is 10 CPU sockets.
You must provide a license during the Veeam MP for Hyper-V installation process. That is why, before you start the deployment, make sure you have obtained your license from Veeam Software. A free 30-day trial license is available.
