I am looking into veeam as a back up solution. I have an 8 host cluster with 2 sockets each. 16 total. with veeam being priced per socket, and needing enterprise plus, the $ will add up. My question is how does it work if for this years budget we license 8 sockets and then next year the remaining.
How does this affect back up jobs. Will it only apply the license to a specific host or is this even possible.
