    Product Overview

    Veeam Disaster Recovery Orchestrator delivers a reliable, scalable and easy-to-use orchestration and automation engine for business continuity/disaster recovery (BC/DR). Features include recovery planning, automated testing, and compliance documentation. This solution is an excellent add-on to on premises customer deployments or private cloud hosting customers.

    For more information about setup and configuration, see the Veeam Help Center.

    Licensing

    Veeam Disaster Recovery Orchestrator is licensed per orchestrated VM. To orchestrate recovery from Veeam replicas or backups, all orchestrated workloads must also be licensed and protected with Veeam Backup & Replication Enterprise or Enterprise Plus edition. To orchestrate recovery from HPE (3PAR, Primera, Alletra 9000) snapshots, NetApp ONTAP snapshots, additional Veeam Backup & Replication licenses are not required (although they are recommended to enable features such as application-aware snapshots).

    Note

    As a part of Veeam Disaster Recovery Orchestrator, the embedded version of Veeam ONE Server does not require an additional license.

    The license file can be generated on the VCSP Pulse Portal by adding the VM workload type in the Manage Licenses > Request New License > Veeam Disaster Recovery Orchestrator > VM section. Download the license file and select it during the Veeam Disaster Recovery Orchestrator installation process. If the license needs to be updated on the existing installation, follow the steps described in the Help Center article.

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

    Note

    Orchestrated instances are assigned to VMs, where one orchestrated instance is equivalent to one VM, regardless of how many orchestration plans that VM is included in. For example, if both backup and replica of a specific VM is orchestrated, this would only consume a single license instance.

    You can use Rental license on Veeam Disaster Recovery Orchestrator while underlying Veeam Backup & Replication server has Subscription license installed and vice versa.

    Usage Reporting

    At the beginning of the month, open Veeam Disaster Recovery Orchestrator UI > Administration > License > Details to obtain the license usage details. The information includes the number of orchestrated VMs for the past month. Then, the overall usage must be submitted through VCSP Pulse Portal.
