Is Veeam (trial) available for download for skill development or is it just available for Corporate use only?

I tried to register on Veeam's site to get a trial download for the purpose of building up my skills, but as I was registering, it would not allow for me to enter in my personal email. It mentioned that a corporate email account is needed. As a result, I cannot create an account.

Does anyone have this problem? How can I download a trial of Veeam?

I've never had a problem, but they probably want a non, gmail, hotmail, or yahoo account, so they can use it for Marketing Purposes, this is very common.

Do you not have another email address you could use ?

I've just looked and it states you can use Facebook, Google+ or LinkedIn ?

It also states Public email is not allowed.

Yes, this is not possible on the website for Veeam Availability Suite,

Free and Trail bits are the same, the license file regulates features.

Where can I get a business email address to use temporarily to get these downloads?

Why not email Veeam, and ask them, and tell them you only have a public email address, but you would still like to evaluate their product.

It does not take very long, to register a domain name, and then setup an email forward to you public email address!

I already did contact Veeam, but the only answer they gave me was an apology, and they cannot do it for me.

Create a Domain Forwarder. It seems they do not want your business.
