Plug-ins for Enterprise Applications

Product Overview

Veeam Plug-ins for Enterprise Applications extend functionality of Veeam Backup & Replication and allow you to create transactionally-consistent backups of SAP HANA and Oracle databases.

  • Veeam Plug-in for SAP HANA — a SAP-certified backup and recovery solution that allows you to back up and restore SAP HANA databases.
  • Veeam Plug-in for Oracle RMAN — an Oracle-certified backup and recovery solution that allows you to back up and restore Oracle databases.
  • Veeam Plug-in for SAP on Oracle — a SAP-certified backup and recovery solution that allows you to back up and restore Oracle databases to which an SAP application is connected.
  • Veeam Plug-in for Microsoft SQL Server — a Microsoft-certified backup tool for SQL Server databases that integrates with Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio.

For more information about how to configure protection of these workloads, see the Veeam Help Center.


Veeam Plug-ins for Enterprise Applications is licensed per Application server. To utilize Rental licensing for Veeam Plug-ins for Enterprise Application, it must be connected to Veeam Backup & Replication installation, which uses Enterprise Plus license.

You can create a single license to cover all types of workloads protected by a single Veeam Backup & Replication server. The license file can be generated and assigned to the backup server installation using VCSP Pulse plug-in for Veeam Service Provider Console. Alternatively, a new license file can be generated on the VCSP Pulse Portal by adding the Application server workload type in the Manage Licenses > Request New License > Veeam Backup & Replication > Application server section.


A machine protected by both Veeam Plug-in and Veeam Backup & Replication will consume a license only once. For example, you have an Oracle server that you back up using Veeam Plug-in. You also back up this server using image-level backup functionality of Veeam Backup & Replication. In this case, only one license will be consumed.

Each workload under protection consumes the license at a rate in alignment with the VCSP Rental Point Per Unit (PPU).

Usage Reporting

A new license usage report is generated on the first day of each month. It includes the number of monitored workloads for the past month. Usage for these workloads can be tracked using the Enterprise Applications counter name.

The primary and recommended method to collect usage reporting data is Veeam Service Provider Console, an automated and free tool for license management and reporting. To enable license usage reporting, connect Veeam Backup & Replication servers. Once done, license usage from all workloads managed by that server will be included into the monthly License Usage Report.

Alternatively, license usage can be obtained by one of the following ways:

Then, the overall usage must be submitted through VCSP Pulse Portal.
