Offsite Backups to Azure - Which method?

Veeam Logoby Line_Rider » Thu Feb 15, 2018 7:48 pm

I'm researching what method I should implement for getting backup copies offsite to Azure.
No intention of restoring to Azure, this is only to have offsite recent backups that I can pull back after on-prem infrastructure is restored.

There's the Cloud Connect for Enterprise or the VeeamPN and I'm a bit unsure which direction to go with.

VeeamPN, I would do a point to site VPN connection between my on prem Veeam server and then I still create an additional VM in the subnet behind the VeeamPN appliance and configure as a repository correct? This method seems more aligned for doing restores into Azure.

Cloud Connect does seem a little more direct, deploy that as a resource in Azure, connect to it with on my prem console and create a backup copy job to Azure that I could pull from to restore on prem if needed.

This is the best method for your scenario. Azure-based repository and backup copy job pointed to it. Thanks.

After I had posted this I started working on setting up a test between my laptop and the VeeamPN appliance in Azure. I put another VM in that same virtual network (which would be the repo) and was successfully RDP to that test vm using it's internal IP address over the point to site vpn tunnel :)

This is perfect, thank you!

[MERGED] Backup to Azure question

Veeam Logoby marieelieg » Mon Feb 26, 2018 1:35 pm

Hello dears,

If I want to back up my VMs to cloud (Azure), can I do this so using a VAS license?
What I was thinking is the following:
1- Create a VM on Azure that has enough disk space for backups.
2- Add this VM to Veeam console as a windows server.
3- Create a backup repository using this windows server and specify the path to which the backups will reside (for exmaple D:\backups).
4- Create backup jobs using this repository.

Will the above work? If not what are the steps needed to backup to cloud (Azure) and what are the best practices?

Thank you everyone in advance and have a nice day! :D

Sure, the described scenario should work fine. Feel free to leverage Veeam PN in case you struggle with connectivity between on-premises and Azure. Thanks.
