Veeam FastSCP as replication

Veeam Logoby nilzor » Wed Mar 09, 2016 8:45 pm

Hi,

I am planning to run a copy of my instance of Veeam on a VM in Azure.
My idea is to use FastSCP to upload my backups top the VM instance and maintain a copy of my on-premise environment.
Would that be a feasible solution? I understand i'd be able to do file level restores from within my Azure Veeam machine?
What would be the draw backs?


Thanks,
Nilzor

Hi Nilzor,

Let me see if I understand it correctly. You want to run a Veeam Back & Replication server in a VM on Azure.

I assume you have B&R running on-premises who is taking the backups. Then you want to (on a schedule probably) upload the VBK to that Azure VM and if necessary do a ILR from that VM. Is that correct?

This is certainly theoretically possible but don't know if this is going to be the most effective solution.

I would prefer for this scenario to create a vpn-connection to your Azure subscription and then do a backup copy job to the B&R Azure VM Repository. Even take advantage of the WAN accelerators in our solution

Hi Mike,

Can I take advantage of the WAN acceleration without using a cloud connect service provider?
My goal is to be able to restore from azure without downloading the entire vbk file.


Thanks,

Hi Nils,

If you deploy a repository in a VM on Azure, and also deploy the WAN accelerator role on it, then yes you can. In that case, you would also be able to restore items without downloading the VBK

Cheers
