ESXi Home Lab: Free Veeam Backup & Replication V6 Licenses!

Veeam is giving away free NFR licenses of their popular backup and replication software for the holidays to use in your home lab. They are available for VMware vExperts, VMware Certified Professionals, VMware Certified Instructors, VMUG members, Microsoft Most Valuable Professionals, and Microsoft Certified Professionals.

I’m not by any means pushing the software because they’ve paid me. They haven’t. I just think it’s a good product and they’re helping the virtualization community.

From the Veeam site:
“Veeam Backup & Replication v6 was downloaded more than 15 thousand times in its first week of availability, and with new support for Hyper-V, we are glad to extend our offer of NFR licenses to the Microsoft community as well as the entire VMUG community,” explained Doug Hazelman, Vice President of Product Strategy for Veeam Software.

“Access to free NFR licenses of Veeam Backup & Replication is another great perk of VMUG Membership. Thank you, Veeam, for supporting the VMUG Community,” said Jim Millard, VMUG member in the Midwest.
Derek Schauland, Microsoft MVP said, “Veeam for the Microsoft Community? Awesome! Having a program giving NFR licenses of Veeam software to the Microsoft community will be invaluable to the home lab and test needs of IT pros in pursuit of training, blogging and other activities. I look forward to this program.”
