Sizing for Veeam Universal License Subscriptions

This section provides information on how to size the Veeam Availability Suite and Backup and Replication Universal License Subscriptions. These are sold in groups of 10 instances. Each instance can be assigned to a VM, Server or Workstation. Veeam offers a single universal license “instance” that consumes one protected workload. Every workload type, whether it’s a VM, a cloud VM, physical server, application server, or a front-end capacity pack for NAS, will be one workload per instance.

A workload can be a VM, physical server, enterprise application, cloud VM or a file share. With VUL, customers can use the licenses to protect any workload they need, since the licenses are portable. Customers purchase licenses, sold in minimum quantities of 10 licenses, and can use those licenses to protect various workloads.

The number of licenses generally needed equates to the number of workloads you are looking to protect. Most workloads require just one license instance. An exception is when you’re protecting workstations or endpoints, where one license will protect three workstations. One VUL license will also protect 500 GB of NAS file capacity, or two licenses per TB.

The best way to see how many licenses you need is with our VUL configurator. Select the product, enter your workloads and your term of your choice.

Backup required for the following network:

  • Single host 2-socket x86 server (1 instance)
  • 15 Virtual Machines (15 instances)
  • 20 Workstations (7 instances)

In this case, the required number of VAS or VBR Universal License subscriptions would be 3. You would need 23 instances and the subscriptions are sold in blocks of 10 units. Therefore, you will need to purchase 3 VASVUL or VBRVUL subscriptions.

Veeam and ThinkSystem DE & DM Storage

Veeam is fully integrated to the Lenovo DM ONTAP management system. This provides both powerful and affordable backup storage options. Lenovo ThinkSystem DM Series storage snapshot copies provide a number of advantages: You can use them for “point-in-time” recovery and create a large number of restore points frequently, without impacting production workloads—even during working hours. You can also use these snapshot copies to protect data in certain disaster scenarios. You can replicate them to a secondary, often remote storage system for disaster recovery by using Lenovo DM Series SnapMirror® replication technology, or back up and archive them by using Lenovo SnapVault® software. In short, Lenovo storage snapshot technology combines performance, scalability, and efficient storage utilization to deliver fantastic RPOs.

Lenovo and Veeam have partnered to integrate support for Lenovo storage snapshot technology into the Veeam Availability Suite. This integration provides customers with a deeper level of protection and availability across Lenovo ThinkSystem DM Series, and Lenovo ThinkSystem DE Series storage platforms. Integration of Veeam Backup & Recovery with Lenovo storage snapshot technology allows you to achieve:

  • Faster backups. Back up VMware virtual machines (VMs) directly from Lenovo storage snapshot copies.
  • Quick recovery. Recover entire VMs or individual items from Lenovo storage snapshot, and SnapMirror software.
  • Improved protection. Create instant secondary backups from Lenovo storage snapshot copies.

Lenovo DE-Series storage provides simple and reliable SAN storage that integrates seamlessly with most application environments. Its modular design helps decrease operating expenses while offering many options for connectivity, capacity, and performance that easily scale to meet the demands of a growing backup environment.

Lenovo DE-Series and Veeam Backup & Replication combine to offer a data protection and availability solution through tested reference architectures. This solution is optimized for virtual environments, providing disk-to-disk backup and recovery on high-capacity, flexible, performance-oriented Lenovo DE-Series storage arrays. This solution provides you with superior data management for virtual environments and high availability while also making your data highly available.

Lenovo DE-Series arrays provide a high-performing backup repository to house Veeam-created backups. With this capability, the recovery technologies that are enabled through Veeam can satisfy stringent RTOs. Recovery technologies such as instant VM recovery, SureBackup, and on-demand sandbox can leverage backup repositories that are capable of high I/O to achieve their full potential.

These technologies enable you to restore from your backups faster and also enable capabilities such as automated recovery verification. The technologies can also leverage backup data as an ad hoc testing environment. This capability changes the way that users have used backups in the past because more benefits are associated with having backups. No longer do backups sit idle, waiting for an emergency restore; you can apply your backups for many creative uses.

Features include:

  • Recovery of a failed VM in as little as two minutes
  • Near-continuous data protection with built-in replication
  • Fast, agentless item recovery and e-discovery for Microsoft Exchange, SharePoint, and Active Directory, along with transaction-level recovery of SQL Server databases
  • Automatic recoverability testing of every backup and every replica, every time
  • Off-site backups made up to 50 times faster than the speed of standard file copy with built-in WAN acceleration
  • Fast and secure cloud backups with Veeam Cloud Connect
  • Deduplication and compression to minimize storage consumption
  • Off-site recovery with one-click site failover and support for facilitated data center migrations with zero data loss

Veeam and ThinkAgile Hyperconverged

This section provides information on Veeam integration with Lenovo ThinkAgile solutions.

ThinkAgile HX

This solution delivers a complete hyperconverged infrastructure with ThinkAgile HX and ThinkSystem DE series storage that integrates Veeam enterprise-class Backup & Recovery software to deliver instant data and VM recovery for Nutanix business critical applications while streamlining the deployment, management, and scaling of datacenter resources.

Veeam and Lenovo DE Series hybrid flash gives organizations a high-speed storage repository that scales-up to meet the backup and recovery needs of growing application environments and native Veeam data deduplication and compression to keep backup costs in check. Veeam Backup & Replication capabilities also provide a cost-effective way to ensure DR by providing the flexibility to use DE Series as a DR replication target for third party storage systems.

The advantages of Veeam and ThinkAgile HX together include:

  • Veeam and Nutanix have completed significant integration testing with Acropolis virtualization.
  • Lenovo is one of the largest resellers of Nutanix hyperconverged with both appliances and certified node options.

ThinkAgile VX

The data center is changing. The shift to adopting Hyper-Converged Infrastructure (HCI) does not change the desire of enterprises to enable a fully automated, zero-downtime infrastructure for any application or hardware, now and in the future. The change is all about service agility and driving down cost. In short, it is about maximizing data center ROI. However, with this shift, data centers are becoming more difficult to manage and protect as more data and applications are moved into virtual software-defined environments. When modernizing production, you must also modernize protection.

Combining Veeam software and VMware SDDC technologies provides the only modern data protection and Availability solution designed to enable enterprises of all sizes the ability to unlock value for their business. Veeam and Thinkagile VX create a hyper-converged, flash-optimized storage architecture where performance and capacity can be scaled to maintain the Availability requirements facing today’s enterprises. It’s an agile solution that’s ready for future hardware, cloud and application changes.

The advantages of Veeam and ThinkAgile VX together include:

  • Allows customers to deploy a more integrated, highly efficient and cost-effective Availability solution for their vSAN environment. Veeam provides Lenovo VX customers:
  • The ability to expand capacity and performance on demand
  • Storage Policy-Based Management (SPBM) backup and restore to recover entire VMs, individual files and application items in minutes
  • End-to-end AES 256-bit encryption to secure backup files and data at the source in flight and at rest
  • Built-in deduplication and compression to reduce storage and bandwidth
  • Deep monitoring of vSAN through Veeam Management Pack for System Center
  • A VMware Ready for vSAN solution designed and optimized specifically for the VMware platform

Veeam Subscription and License FAQ

Additional information about Lenovo resale of Veeam products.

Q: Does Lenovo provide support for Veeam software?

A: No. All support is provided by Veeam. Customers are instructed to call Veeam customer support directly with any issues installing or operating Veeam software.

Q: How do the Licenses or Subscriptions get delivered?

A: Lenovo uses the Lenovo Key Management System (LKMS) as the vehicle to transact most software delivery, including Veeam. Upon the Sales Order ship date, authorization codes are sent to the purchaser. These codes are then registered on LKMS. At that time the customer information will be electronically delivered to Veeam for processing and delivery of License keys.

Q: How will my support get renewed after initial maintenance agreements expire?

A: Lenovo will renew the Subscriptions as they expire. For Perpetual License maintenance contracts, those will be renewed directly by Veeam.

Q: Does Lenovo preinstall Veeam software at the factory?

A: No. Veeam software is delivered to customers by Veeam directly after Sales Order ship date.
