With the new Veeam Availability Suite 9.5 Update 4, not only the Veeam Backup&Replication Free edition has been discontinued, but also the Veeam ONE Free edition will be discontinued and replaced with a new Community Edition, like happened with the Veeam Backup & Replication.

This means that more functionality will be available within the community edition compared with the previous free version.

Of course there are still some limitations, for example:

  • Only one Veeam B&R (paid or community edition) can be added
  • Application level monitoring
  • No email customization
  • Some reporting functionality is not available
  • Plus some more

Available up to 10 instances, if the 10 instances are violated reporting functionality will be unavailable.

NEW Veeam® ONE™ Community Edition is Veeam’s must-have gift to IT pros, offering a FREE way to leverage the powerful monitoring and reporting capabilities of Veeam ONE and providing a feature-rich introduction to the product’s functionality.
