License policy of Acronis Backup for WMware (Acronis vmProtect)

This article applies to:

  • Acronis Backup for VMware (Acronis vmProtect) 9


Acronis Backup for VMware licensing is based on a number of CPUs in the physical infrastructure holding the virtual machines. Each CPU on the managed ESX host/cluster consumes a license. E.g. if a host has 2 CPUs, you need to have 2 licenses in order to backup this host.

(!) Number of cores in CPU does not matter. E.g. a quad-core CPU requires one license.

The licenses are bound to the ESX host/cluster upon first backup operation with virtual machines running on this host.
