Hope someone might be able to help with this?
We have a project to extend our on-site Veeam Backup to a cloud repository, so we have a physically separate coy of our backups offsite again (this has been missing since we moved to Veeam and disk based storage).
I tried contacting Veeam directly and was just told to visit the find a provider page - which lists a number of companies but doesn't really seem to give a list of which services they offer and as I've not heard of most of them before I have little to go on. Our reseller for Veeam unfortunately isn't a Cloud partner.
We have a pretty simple set of requirements - 21TB of total data in our backups currently in Reverse Incremental mode (so this may increase a little if we need to change backup method as I believe the Reverse Incremental isn't suited well to backup-copy jobs) of which all or a subset if the cost is prohibitive would like to be encrypted and copied to a cloud repository. We don't currently require any ability to host or restore to cloud services and all job verification will be performed onsite. This is purely a last resort storage and ideally should never be used to restore from
We've discussed this with one company and the proposal seemed more complicated than I understood Cloud Connect to be and seemed more like a bespoke system and not the framework Veeam has setup - so I really need some alternatives to compare both the method of implementation and costs.
If anyone had some recommendations of Veeam Cloud partners in the UK that offer the cloud repository I would love to hear them!
The other thought I had for this - is it perhaps a better idea to wait for v10 and just use VTL and a cheap long term storage like Amazon Glacier or another well known box in the cloud?
Appreciate any assistance here!
