Can I deploy the Free Edition of Unitrends Backup (UB) using free ESXi?
Describe how to deploy the free edition of UB using free ESXi.
Yes, you can deploy the UB free edition to VMware’s free ESXi environment to protect up to 8 VMs for free! Simply deploy the UB fee edition to your free ESXi environment and run backups with the Unitrends agent. Host-level snapshot backups are not supported with free ESXi, so using the Unitrends agent is required. Connecting the VM's on the enterprisie ESXi host to do agentless backups requires multiple socket support, which is not included in the free license.
For more information on Unitrends supported ESXi, see our Compatibility Matrix.
