Veeam Cloud Connect

Back in 2014, Veeam released the Cloud Connect feature as part of their V8 update to Veeam Backup and Replication. This feature was a catalyst for businesses to extend their data availability strategy to Veeam partners offering Backup-as-a-Service. This model was heavily consumed by large numbers and three years on, the Veeam Cloud Connect possibilities are growing with the current iteration, Veeam Backup and Replication V9.5

If you’re not already familiar, Veeam Cloud Connect allows customers to connect to cloud based repositories to store backup data offsite. This connection is completed over the internet with no requirement for site-to-site VPN’s or any direct comms. This connection is encrypted over the internet to your service provider, and secured via logon credentials.

On the customer side, it couldn’t be easier to connect to your preferred service provider. From your Veeam Backup and Replication Management Console, navigate to ‘Service Providers’ and ‘Add Service Provider’

service provider creds

Once confirmed, a new Cloud Repository will appear allowing you to configure Backup, Backup Copy or replication jobs to the repository.
