Have you tried the Backup Copy Job "Merge" over a WAN connection without accelerator or Veaam Cloud Connect?
The merge takes a lot of time and a lot of bandwidth. I don't think it really is a viable solution except for very small backups.

[MERGED] Offsite backups to Google Nearline??

Has anyone figured this out yet??
There's another thread on this topic with no conclusive answers.
Is it simply cheaper and better to use MS Azure since the cloud connect is included with the enterprise version and one can set it up without a consultant or 3rd-party company...
Thank you, Tom

As far as I'm concerned this type of storage can be used only in a combination with a 3-party software exposing it as ordinary system, such as NFS, ISCSI, CIFS, etc.

In future, kindly, don't create a separate thread for questions already discussed before, it's more convenient to have feedback regarding one particular functionality within one topic.

Thanks.

We are running Veeam and creating our backups to local storage and then pushing the VM images out to Google Nearline using Cloudberry (https://www.cloudberrylab.com/backup/wi ... erver.aspx) . Works well and provides the outcome we need. Just wish Veeam would partner up and make it a straight shot out.

In my opinion your best option is looking at a (Windows) cloud server with the needed amount of storage attached to it and connected with VPN (perhaps OpenVPN).
The cloud server would then act as a DATA mover for the repository you create, and merges would process on that server locally.
Depending on your licensed version you could also deploy WAN accelerators to speed up the DATA moving over slow WAN links.

Off-course when you choose a Cloud Connect repository everything is done for you without the need for setting up and managing.
