Hi, can you help me figure out this scenario.
Customer have a license for VBR version 11 with few instances.
They want to backup their Azure VM’s and store the backups on their Azure blob or Azure Smb file share.
So the plan is to spin a vm instance on their azure, install VBR on that new VM instance, add the license, add their VMs as managed server on the VBR, configure target backup repository as Network attached storage (SMB) or configure target backup repository as (Object Storage - Azure Blob).
Note: License is for VBR version 11 and not for Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure.
Now the question is, what is the proper approach for this scenario?
Can we add each vm instance from their azure as managed servers to be able to backup it up or do we have to connect through Veeam backup Microsoft azure appliance? (Note: Customer does not want to deploy Azure Appliance)
Is adding Azure SMB share as backup repository supported?
Can I directly point my backup to my target Azure Blob repository?
