VEEAM LICENSING HAS CHANGED
As of December 31st 2022, Veeam® no longer sells per-socket licences to new customers for Veeam Backup & Replication™: Read Veeam's official 2022 Per-Socket Licence End-of-Sale Announcement here
The Veeam Universal Licence (VUL) was introduced back in 2019 as a portable, per-workload annual-subscription licence to provide flexibility across on-premise and multi-cloud environments.
Selected Veeam partners are facilitated to also offer Veeam Cloud & Service Provider (VCSP) Licences which deliver the same benefits, greater flexibility and in most cases better value than VUL.
VUL or VCSP: which option provides best-value for your business?
Veeam Universal Licence (VUL)
VUL subscriptions are purchased with full Enterprise Plus features, in blocks of 5-10 instances, on annual or multi-annual contracts. Reductions in licence count are available at subscription-renewal. Increases can be included via separate licence contracts or co-terming.
Veeam Cloud & Service Provider Licence (VCSP)
The VCSP subscription allows you to still purchase individual Standard and Enterprise feature-set licences, so you only pay for exactly what you need. VCSP can be sold yearly but is also available as a monthly subscription with no cost penalty. This enables the flexibility to remove or add licences as your requirement reduces or grows.
VCSP Licence Benefits
- Same portable workload flexibility as VUL
- Available with Standard and Enterprise feature sets
- No annual lock-in
- 30-day subscription, monthly billing with no cost penalty
- No need to buy in bundles of 5-10 licences as with VUL
- Only pay for what you use
- Easily true-up and true-down
- Lowest-price licensing model
- Available as a fully-managed service

Our Cloudlake® Services
Now is the time to reconsider cloud storage for your backup, O365, hybrid storage ... in fact for everything:
Most cloud storage solutions include ranges for performance and ranges for costs for ingress/egress of data with different levels of compatibility, all with differing price points. Cloudlake is different ...
Move data between on-premise tiers and cloud tiers at will, with no charges in either direction. Your data resides wherever best suits the needs of the workload for performance, reliability, manageability and cost.
No business is immune to a cyber attack. A defence-in-depth strategy including fully tested backups is vital - not only to help detect and protect against ransomware but also to help recover from a successful attack.
Cloudlake combines the leading modern backup tools and best-of-class cloud repositories to deliver an immutable, flexible, reliable, high performance and cost effective solution for your off-site backups.
