Veeam Backup & Replication for Microsoft Windows, Linux and Mac

In this article

    Product Overview

    Veeam Agents for Microsoft Windows, Linux and Mac offer backup and recovery for physical servers and workstations in the datacenter, at customer offices, or roaming laptops and ROBOs out of reach from traditional solutions.

    While the Veeam Agents can be centrally managed using  Veeam Backup & Replication, many service providers opt to manage them in Veeam Service Provider Console for broad coverage across customer sites.

    For more information about the Veeam Agents, including a how Veeam Service Provider Console can centrally deploy and manage the agents, see the Veeam Helpcenter.  

    Usage Reporting

    Regardless of operating system (Microsoft Windows, Linux or Mac), backups will appear as one of two counters: Servers or Workstations.

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

    Alternatively, Veeam Agents centrally deployed and managed through Veeam Backup & Replication may also follow the same manual or API-driven protocols used for VMs.

    Licensing

    The Veeam Agents are entitled using a 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. To find the most up-to-date PPU, log in to the ProPartner Portal and access the PPU Information Sheet.
