I am trying to setup a routine backup of a number of clients in our remote office in another state. I have a wan VPN connection to this site, and they would be able to connect to our Veeam infrastructure in the head office, however I do not wish to be pushing their backup data across the wan at this time.
I have a server in this office that I can configure as a repository on my veeam server in head office, however I do not know how this will behave with regards to data transfer. The remote repository will be on the same physical lan as the clients being backed up.
Will the clients connect directly to this location, and not send the data to the wan and back, or will it all go through the main veeam server?
Other than backing up to a file share, is there any other options to achieve what I am looking for?
