Veeam and Azure Stack

Post by wandersick » Dec 18, 2017 5:35 am

Hello,

I am working on an Azure Stack project and sincerely would like to leverage Veeam as the backup solution. Is it possible at this moment?

(BTW, I see Commvault has an early release of "Virtual Server Agent for Microsoft Azure Stack". How's Veeam doing on Azure Stack at this moment?)

Thanks.

Currently the only way to back up VMs running on AzureStack is to do that from inside the guest. So, feel free to protect those workloads, using our Veeam Agent solutions.

Also, it might be worth waiting till Update 3 release, because it has agent central management functionality included, which should ease the orchestration task dramatically.

Thanks.

Thanks for the prompt response.

What about restore? Would "Restore to Microsoft Azure" work? If not, how should we go about that? (Restore VM to Azure Stack)

At the moment there is no Direct Restore to Azure Stack support in Backup & Replication.

I've been working with some providers who have gotten creative and worked out a way to manually restore VMs from Agent backups back into Azure Stack. They have done this with PowerShell where they import the VHD and then construct and new Azure VM using the New-AzureRmVM commandlet.

Thanks

Thanks for the information. We found this Azure Stack and Veeam presentation from HPE which hinted support but with double asterisk which I assume is because of the manual restore method you have mentioned.

Hopefully there will be announcement regarding support soon.

Hi Wandersick,

This information is correct, but as the asterisks state... There is manual work that need to be performed at that moment (one possibility is what Anthony states above). You are absolutely right that Veeam won't stop there with the support, but there are quite some key features in Stack missing which we normally leverage. I can't give any ETA nor tell you what exactly we are building, but I do can tell you that we won't "forget" about Azure stack :-)
