Veeam ONE

In this article

    Product Overview

    Veeam ONE provides monitoring and reporting for all Veeam Backup & Replication servers as well as virtualized infrastructure – VMware vSphere (including VMware Cloud Director) and Microsoft Hyper-V. This enables capacity planning, alerting, heatmaps, data protection insights, and more.

    For Infrastructure as a Service environments, Veeam ONE can provide multi-tenancy for reporting and dashboards with RBAC. For Veeam Cloud Connect environments, it provides an additional subset of reports and monitoring insights.

    For more information about configuring monitoring and reporting, see the Veeam Help Center.

    Licensing

    Veeam ONE is licensed per Monitored Workload. Please note that Veeam ONE enables data collection and reporting automatically for all workloads protected by the Veeam Backup & Replication servers it is connected to.

    In case only virtual infrastructure is being monitored (no backup servers are added to the Veeam ONE server), you can granularly control the license consumption using inclusion and exclusion rules for monitored VMs. For more information, see the Veeam ONE Deployment Guide.

    The license file can be generated and assigned to the Veeam ONE 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 Monitored Workload workload type in the Manage Licenses > Request New License > Veeam ONE > Monitored Workload section.

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

    Note

    To use Veeam ONE for Veeam Cloud Connect reporting, performance monitoring and alerting, a free Community edition license can be utilized. For more information, see this article.

    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 following counter names:

    • VMs
    • Cloud Machines
    • Workstation computers
    • Server computers
    • File shares

    The primary and recommended usage reporting method to collect usage reports across IaaS as well as tenants’ Veeam ONE installations is Veeam Service Provider Console, an automated and free tool for license management and reporting. For integration with Veeam ONE use a dedicated plug-in for Veeam Service Provider Console. License usage will appear in the Monthly 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.
