Feature request: backup direct to Microsoft Azure BLOB storage

Post by MarkoTamm »


I am writing regarding a feature that would be very nice to have in Veeam B&R server.
Is there a possibility now or in the futuure for direct backup to Microsoft Azure BLOB storage archive tier. At the moment we have a problem to solve, where a client needs alot of data backed up somewhere on cheap storage space. If we could backup it with Veeam directly to BLOB storage, that would be great.

Regards and thanks.

Our implementation of cloud out works a bit differently. What you could do at this moment is take a backup and store it on the SOBR performance tier and keep it there for a minimum amount of restore points (I could say 1 but I always find that very dangerous :-)). After that, move aging backups off to the capacity tier.
Not sure if that would help for the customer
