we are currently planning a way implement backup & replication within the Azure/AWS Cloud with Veeam. Our focus is Azure atm, so let's focus on this.
I have identified three possible ways to implement this:
1) Use a Azure VM as a Veeam B&R Instance with Azure Disk Storage attached
(easy but expensive imo)
2) Use a Azure VM as a Veeam B&R Instance and a VTL Gateway (StorSimple) to connect Azure Blockblob Storage
(This could be an option until Veeam supports Blockblob natively)
3) Use a Azure VM as a Veeam B&R Instance and attach Azure File Storage via CIFS/SMB
Does anybody have practical experience with one of those options, or is there an official Veeam Whitepaper or best practise guide regarding this topic?
