In this opportunity I come to show you how to get free Veeam licenses that you can use to protect your “HomeLab” or can be used to practice if you are planning to get certified as a “Veeam Certified Engineer” (VMCE). I am currently protecting my virtual environment with these licenses that can be obtained if you meet one of these requirements:


Who is eligible?

  • Veeam Certified Engineers (VMCE)
  • VMware: vExperts, VMware Certified Professionals (VCPs & VCAPs)
  • Microsoft: Most Valuable Professionals (MVPs), Microsoft Certified Solutions Experts (MCSEs)
  • AWS: AWS Heroes & Certified Professionals
  • Nutanix AHV: ALL Nutanix technical personnel
  • VMware, Microsoft, AWS trainers, bloggers and other certified professionals

To request this free license just access the link:

Fill out the form which is shown in the following image:


After filling out the form, you will receive an email with the attached NFR licenses that you can install on your Veeam Backup & Replication Server.



License File


Although there is a “Veeam Community” version that is also freely available, this license does not have all the features of the NFR edition. I have included the link of the Veeam portal where you can compare the features available for each type of edition. Here is the link:
