Limitations for Veeam Backup & Replication Licensed by Sockets

If you use Veeam Backup & Replication with a Perpetual per-socket license and you want to connect a Veeam Backup for AWS appliance to the Veeam Backup & Replication infrastructure, you must install an additional Perpetual per-instance license or a subscription license. When you install an additional license, the new license merges with the existing Perpetual per-socket license. For details on the merging process, see the Merging Licenses section in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.

If you do not install an additional Perpetual per-instance license or a subscription license, you will be able to use one free license instance per each socket (but maximum 6 free instances for all sockets). After you exceed the limit of free instances, Veeam Backup for AWS backup policies for workloads without license instances will start to fail.

To obtain an additional license, contact a Veeam sales representative at Sales Inquiry.
