Veeam Server Onsite with Azure Storage

Post by ipv12 » Jan 14, 2020 12:06 am

If I deploy the Veeam office 365 v4 backup server onsite and connect it to Azure blob storage, will the backup data its self need to route through the on prem server?

Hi Michael and welcome to the Community!

Backup data will go directly to an object storage repository and only metadata will be saved locally.

Only the metadata will be saved locally, but the local backup proxy is what does the reading of data and writing it to Azure Blob. This means all traffic flow will yes still have to pass through the local server and then immediately be sent back up to Azure for writing to Azure Blob.

What I've been recommending to customers who want to keep all data in Microsoft's cloud to use a proxy/repo Azure VM, or multiple Azure VMs if the size of your O365 warrants it. Of course you'll have to pay for the compute as well as a little non-blob storage for the metadata, but at least you won't have all the traffic traversing your pipe twice.

When deploying the Marketplace VM for VBO365 in Azure I assume this virtual machine is configured in a Windows workgroup environment. Is it possible to add additional proxies/repo Azure VMs in the same workgroup, or is a domain required for this ?

No AD domain is required. As long as you can authenticate to the additional VMs, you can deploy the additional VBO components on them.

I misspoke. I mixed up the requirements of VBO with Veeam Backup & Replication which does not have the trusted domain requirement. But for VBO, yes, the backup proxy must be in the same or trusted domain.
