Backup DIRECT to Cloud Connect - Cloud Repository

Hello,

I see a huge market for the service providers offering Cloud Connect currently, if it was possible to backup Desktops/Laptops using Endpoint Backup and send the backup directly to a Cloud Repository backed by Cloud Connect.

Hi Rasmus,

In the GA version of Veeam Endpoint backup you will be able to send backups to Veeam B&R repository and then even configure backup copy jobs later on ;)

Thanks!

Cannot comment on this yet (Dmitry will be able to provide more info on this), but if you're able to put backup files to Veeam repository, you can then use backup copy jobs to transfer machine images to the CC repository.

Looking forward for comment..

Veeam Endpoint Protection backup directly to Veeam Cloud Connect Partner would be great for SMB customers without existing Veeam infrastructure! (where Backup Copy to CC isn't possible)

Hi guys,

including to Cloud Connect?

Not in the first version. As Vitaliy said: you can backup to local Veeam B&R repository, then sent Endpoint backups offsite or to cloud repository with the backup copy jobs.

Having a local backup is a good idea to enable fast backups and recoveries, and to meet "3" part of the 3-2-1 rule. That said, I am not completely opposed the idea of going direct to CC target and relying on the service provider to meet the "3" part instead, while fast backup and restore might not be that important for some. It is just that for our existing customer base, it makes perfect sense to go to B&R repository first for local backup, then Backup Copy to cloud. This is why we focus on this use case first for v1.

Backup copy to cloud = the possibility to add a repository through a service provider or a backup copy job to a remote repository?

Currently it is a backup copy job targeted to a remote repository, including one from Cloud Connect service provider.

Is there any component planned to help make connection from road-warrior laptops to central Backup Repository?
Something like a "Backup Repository Proxy" that could be exposed to internet that the Endpoint Backup could then connect to? or will it be required to first establish some sort of VPN etc. when not on LAN with Backup Repository?

My point exactly!

Backup from Endpoint Protection to Veeam Repository is pretty useless if clients does not have access to the Veeam Repository internally (VLAN etc.) or more important externally.

So either if Backup to Veeam Cloud Connect Repository or some kind of "Backup Repository Proxy" could be a solution.

With the right setup in your infrastructure, a Repository in the right VLAN should not be a problem with our solutions. But we do understand of course that there are others who don't have access to a B&R server (not yet :-D)

But on topic, v1 will not have the features you want, but it is v1, and our main concern is now to have a solid backup solution, and more importantly, a solid restore solution. What the future will bring in functionality is not sure yet, but do know we are listening ;-)

Cheers

Mike

+1 for this feature. It's quite difficult to setup this to a local B&R repository at the company site for a large ammount of mobile employees (bandwith and VPN gateways will be a bottleneck)

By the way...

Does this mean that all of you are willing to pay a monthly fee to a service provider to store your endpoint backups at their infrastructure? Or do you prefer to install something yourselves in Azure / Amazon and manage it yourself and also pay some IaaS costs to those public clouds?

Thanks for letting us know
