    Veeam Backup - Licensing query

    Hi Folks,

    I've been playing around with the free version of Veeam backup which is really quite something. Just the ability to schedule a daily copy of the VHDs to another server whilst live is extremely useful.

    Just got a couple of questions:

    1) In free mode you can only schedule a copy operation (copy the VHDs) not setup a full VeeamZip job?

    2) No incremental backup, so each night the VHDs on my remote backup server will be overwritten?

    3) No live migrations? Can't say move server X from my production Hyper-V host to a backup host on my admin server?

    4) Is there EDU pricing on the Standard edition? £600 odd is rather pricey for a single live Hyper-V host with four non-business critical servers.

    5) Additional Hyper-V question - I assume there is no way to migrate a VM from Hyper-V on Server 2012 R2 to Server 2008 R2? I believe the inability for these version to talk was a proactive (but weird) decision by MSFT? So I'd have to create a new VM and use the existing VHD?

    Correct on all counts..

    Licensing is priced per socket there is a value bundle for 6 sockets enough for a HyperV cluster.

    You have to buy maintenance each year as well if you want to keep it up to date.

    If price is an issue check out the Altaro Hyper v option that's pretty good as well.
