Hey Guys,

I have query. Suppose I have my veeam backup server on-premise and if I wanna store my backups on a repository(let’s say windows or linux) on cloud. Is it possible to integrate on-premise backup server with repository on cloud?

Hello,

you can integrate object storage repositories in the cloud as capacity tier in scale-out repositories.

Or you can use a cloud connect service provider.

This is definitely one of the best use cases.

 

It is possible to do what you’re asking @Anandu, I wouldn’t recommend using a VM in cloud as a repository due to the following:

  • More API calls when you need to transform backups vs just offloading blocks via object storage capacity tier
  • You’ll have additional latency/reduced bandwidth vs a local backup, if this is your primary repository then this will impact your RTO due to reduced recovery speed.
  • When you have a backup offloaded to capacity tier and need to restore, Veeam will only fetch the blocks that it doesn’t have locally, resulting in fewer API calls, less egressed data from the cloud (which is normally charged for), you won’t get this benefit with a VM in the cloud instead.
  • You won’t want to have the repository VM directly accessible via the internet for the following: 1. Veeam B&R won’t want to be NAT’d to the internet which could cause issues between the components communicating. 2. It’s far more likely to be a security headache and require more advanced setup to protect adequately.
  • So you’ll need a site to site VPN to the cloud which is an extra cost and will reduce throughout depending on the specs allocated to the VPN.

Let us know if this helps and if you’ve got further questions around what you could do 🙂

Excellent points here and to look at. Cloud Connect is great and what we sell.
