It would be nice to be able to add a cloud service provider to backup to a cloud destination.

Jona, you can add Veeam backup repository and then configure backup copy jobs to send backups to the off-site location.

where exactly do I configure the repository? In the beta product I have no access to repositories, only to choose local drive or smb during the setup of the backup?

Yes, that's correct. In this beta Veeam repositories cannot be used as targets for EndPoint backups, but as you can see from the GUI this option would be available in the GA version.

Obviously this will not work right now with Beta. And it will only work if you have Veeam B&R which most consumers/small businesses will probably not have. I would say, if this product is intended for consumers/small businesses where they do not have servers, then I would suggest that this feature be added into the VEB console.

Jona,

Actually it is. In the configure backup go to shared folder (even for the local machine) and specify the exact path to the google drive or dropbox on your local machine. It is maybe not so predictable, but we left a certain workaround on how to back up to the exact location

If its not predictable to the end user, then the philosophy of KISS don't pertain to this feature.

It’s not a feature, just a workaround.

Feature request - Cloud integration

Veeam Logoby davide.volo » Mon Jan 12, 2015 4:54 pm

It would be so useful to have a native integration with some major cloud provider like Amazon, Microsoft or Dropbox :idea:

Thank you Davide. Backup and Restore operations are enough for your scenario, or you are looking for some additional functionality when saying native integration?

Dmitry,

I thin what Davide is saying is that he wants his onedrive, dropbox, amazon subscription, azure subscription... possibility as a target. So instead of choosing a file share or USB device, that is what he wants to choose.

Davide, this won't be in v1 for sure, and as stated above in this thread, there is a workaround when you want to use dropbox or similar. But I'll make sure it is being discussed for v2 :-)

Cheers

Mike

Mike,
I understood the backup part, but I am seeking for a feedback or thoughts on bare metal restore from such cloud storage :)

[MERGED] Feature Request - cloud storage integration

Veeam Logoby Washi » Tue Jan 20, 2015 11:11 am

I suggest you to add the ability to select OneDrive / Box / Dropbox / Google Drive as a place for backup.
