    Product Overview

    Veeam Backup for AWS and Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure are native backup and recovery solutions that enable users to gaining control of their cloud-hosted data. Users of AWS and Azure can take advantage of policy-based backup and recovery that scales to cost-effective object storage and keeps data portable for cross-cloud or cloud-to-datacenter designs.

    While standalone licensing and deployment options are available, Veeam Cloud Service Provider partners who want to use their own rental license to manage and protect AWS and Azure customer data must centrally manage their installations using plug-ins for Veeam Backup & Replication.

    For more information, including step-by-step configuration support, see the Veeam Helpcenter.

    Usage Reporting

    Regardless of the hyperscale cloud provider (AWS or Microsoft Azure), every instance under protection (including Azure VMs, AWS RDS backups, and more) will appear in usage reports as a Cloud VM counter.

    To collect usage reports across customer installations, the primary and recommended usage reporting method is Veeam Service Provider Console, an automated and free tool for license management and reporting.

    Alternatively, all other API-driven and manual usage reporting methods for Veeam Backup & Replication are supported. See the Centralized Monthly Usage Reporting section for more information.

    Licensing

    Veeam Backup for AWS and Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure are entitled using Veeam Universal License. Each VM under protection consumes the license at a rate in alignment with the VCSP Rental Price Per Point (PPU). For the Veeam Agents, there is no difference in consumption across editions of Veeam Backup & Replication.
