Price-wise it's good. You have to pay for licenses at the enterprise level. They have many different pricing models.

The solution is rather expensive and I think the price is too high. There are also additional costs that are not included in the standard licensing.

It's a subscription-based license, which is started on a yearly basis. Currently, the licensing is split between three editions: standard, enterprise, and enterprise plus. As long as you check the comparison between the additions and make sure that you have what you need, there are no extra costs with Veeam. You can have Veeam Agent for Linux installed and start doing backups locally, to the cloud, or to tape. There are plenty of options available.

The pricing model makes it so that it's not too expensive. You only need to license the machines that use it. You don't need to license the calls, the processor, or the physical server.

The licensing model depends on the usage, size, and features that you use. We are at an enterprise level but there are higher levels that you can get to. The standard level and essentials can give you what you need.

Veeam is very inexpensive. We have a bi-monthly licensing plan.

The solution isn't expensive, not really. It's manageable. There are some roadblocks with the licensing. Right now we are dealing with an issue because we cannot merge licenses. We can no longer install the license file. We have to merge all the license files in one file, and then install it in the license management server. This is the only issue that we having a problem with right now. Veeam is trying to resolve it by upgrading some of our licenses. Previously, we had an agent called physical Linux. We had a Windows agent for physical workloads. You can apply the licenses for VMware, for the Linux agent, the Windows agent, etc., but no longer. All of the physical workloads have to be converted to VAS. Licensing costs are $300,000 USD yearly, and we pay for three years at a time. I think if you want to extend your support, you have to pay twenty-five percent of the license cost per year. We have to pay this because if there is an upgrade of the software, we cannot take advantage of that. So, you have to pay for that too.
