Azure VM agentless backup

Hi

Is there a Veeam solution for agentless backup of Azure VMs. Either to Azure or to on prem?

Thanks

Hi Carl,

Currently the suggested method to back up Azure VMs is Veeam Agents.

Thanks!

Cannot comment on the road map, but we evaluate different ideas for our updates and based on the priority and feedback, these features get into the release.

I agree this would be an amazing feature. Currently you have the option of agent based backup or Azure Backup. If Veeam could get the Azure API's to take snapshots of the actual Hyper-V VM i would think that would be huge from a performance and dedupe standpoint.

While on the topic, one thing i see happening more and more is companies moving to PaaS for things like SQL. It is becoming very cost effective and i get the feeling its just going to get more common. To my knowledge (and i could be wrong here) Veeam cannot back up non VM based Azure SQL instances. So you are basically stuck with using Azure backup, which, while it works well, it does you no good in the off chance that the Azure platform as a whole tanks. With that are there any plans to add that functionality in?

Backing up the SQL instance would need a backup from the source. This isn't unthinkable, but due security/etc improbable. Restoring would be the real challenge.
Option 2 is for Veeam to create a 'legacy type' backup mechanism... erm....nah thanks :wink:

With the acquisition of N2WS anything is possible in regards of Azure backup.
I'm soon to check what they can do on Amazon.
