< 10 000

< 50 000

< 80 000

< 10 0000

* Under the condition that a protected VM has 2 virtual disks and is included in 2 daily data protection jobs: one targeted to a local backup repository, one targeted to cloud. Managed Veeam Backup & Replication server protects 100 VMs.

Microsoft SQL Server

Veeam Availability Console ships with the Microsoft SQL Server Express edition. The Express edition can be used for POC, trial and small-scale environments on a temporary basis.
