Thanks for your response and answering my question - that's great.

Yes, the company I work for is a Veeam Partner; I'll check back here at the appropriate place.

Tried to apply for a license in parallel via the official request page for NFR licenses and it worked; hope that's ok.

Best regards

@Tom1 You get a license for the Veeam Data Platform - Premium edition. And this includes Veeam ONE and the Veeam Recovery Orchestrator.

@Meitantei Are you maybe a Veeam Partner? If so, you can request a NFR license from you partner account manager. If not, maybe @Madi.Cristil can help.

How about Veeam Disaster Recovery Orchestrator? Looks like it is a part of the suite.

Hello,

I am currently using Veeam Backup & Replication Community Edition (exclusively private) and would be interested in a NFR license for Veeam Backup & Replication. 

I am an IT expert - Computer Forensic Expert to be precise and also certified (GIAC Certified Forensic Analyst).

Is there a possibility to get a NFR license?

Thank you very much for your efforts in advance.

Best regards 
Sebastian

All,

Does anyone know if the NFR license can be renewed?

 

 

The year license is excellent for gaining the education in Veeam products and usage in my free time, but I’m looking replace VMware VDP which I use simply to backup the lab components in case I break something and don’t want to waste the time to rebuild it.

 

Anyone have experience getting this renewed?

I think you can just go and get a new one and apply it? 

Correct, you don’t renew you just request a new one 🙂

@Kseniya, thank you for this offer. I wanted to offer a word of suggestion. Would it be possible to add the newer Microsoft certification types to the list of possible qualifying certs? The problem I am pointing out is that the list of certs currently references the older MCSE/MCSA (Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert/Associate) but does not include the more modern “Microsoft 365 Certified: <insert name>” and “Microsoft Certified: <insert name>”. By way of reference, see Browse Certifications and Exams | Microsoft Learn. Looking at my exam history, the MCSE/MCSA has not been used for certifications since 2018 so there could be some people who earned their first cert in the last few years but don’t have an MCSE. Thanks for your time!

Hi @jreinhardtpa ! :) Kseniya is no longer working for Veeam. Thank you for your suggestion, we will look into it. In the meantime, please feel free to download and use the NFRs. You can fill out an older certification and you will be able to download the licenses. 

Best, 

Madi

Dear @Kseniya,

 

This offering is awesome. But I had a question when signing up: The post states that AWS certified professionals are eligible to sign up for a NFR key but the form only allows Heroes and Community builders.
Was the program limited during the last 2 years?

With best regards

Andreas

 

 

Looks like it was either removed or something else.  @Madi.Cristil @safiya -- they can check on this for you as Kseniya is no longer here.

Hi @AndreasS ! Lovely to meet you :) 

Yes, you can only select AWS Heroes and Builders. I can issue a NFR for you if you give me more details on your AWS certifications though.

Sounds good! I received the key. Many thanks to my “green” data protection software.
Thanks for this post @Kseniya!

Hi guys

Just towards the end of last year I sent an email to request more than 20 licenses to an email contact at Veeam that I saw on the page - I never heard back so I sent an email again and got a bounceback. 

Is there someone I can reach out to about this? I believe my company is a Veeam Partner.

Thanks

Hi @mateuszd ! Please send me an email at madalina.cristil@veeam.com I might be able to help. Please let me know which is your company and how would you use it. Normally we would only offer you 20 licenses. 

Thanks! Emailed! :)
