Azure Advice and Guidance

Post by nholman » Nov 04, 2017 9:11 am

Hi All

We are running a full IaaS environment in azure. Only SaaS that we currently use is SFB on o365.
We have around 60 vms running in azure and these include, SQL, Exchange, DC's, File Servers etc. The reasons we arent using Exchange Online is due to data residency (before anyone asks!)

Now my question is around veeam and backups of these vms and applications. is anyone else in the same situation as us and what guidance can you give if any? We currently have no backups and Azure backup doesnt look as great as its advertised.
i know veeam agent is available and if licensed can backup applications like SQL and Exchange etc - but where can i put these backups?

Any advice around this would be great
thanks

Backup those VMs, using our agent solutions, and point those jobs to backup server also running in Azure. It might be worth waiting for Update 3 which will have built-in agent central management feature; supposed to make your life easier. Thanks.

Thanksf or getting back to me.

When you say "point those jobs to backup server also running in Azure" - do you mean run veeam backup and replication server on azure vm or something else?

Correct, or at least have a repository server running there (with backup server still being deployed locally). Thanks.

We have no local network for this - its full cloud so running a local backup isnt going to work unless im told otherwise.

Can we attached azure blob storage to veeam backup server if running on a vm in azure? i would imagine the storage costs if we have to add disks are going to be "rather large"!!!

As mentioned, both approaches (local backup server, cloud backup server) would work fine.

Currently only VM disks are supported.
