[MERGED] Veeam Cloud Connect with Azure

Veeam Logoby sibinsam » Mon Dec 07, 2015 12:21 pm

We are implementing a solution for a customer to copy backups from local storage to Azure storage.
Customer already has Azure subscription. Could someone advise if customer's existing Azure subscription can be used?
I saw a whitepaper which says Azure VM should be provided by a Veeam Cloud Service Provider. However in this scenario customer already has Azure subscription.

Thanks

The customer can deploy a Windows or Linux machine in Azure and assign it a backup repository role to copy backups to.

So during deployment customer should create a new windows server and not the veeam cloud connect pre configured machine in azure marketplace. Is this correct?

While thinking about Azure, don't forget to keep in mind its download traffic prices. Those will come to light, should you need to download the backups stored in cloud. Thanks.

[MERGED] Veeam Backup Essentials and Cloud Connect

Veeam Logoby Daithi » Tue Sep 26, 2017 1:47 pm

Hi,

We currently use Veeam Backup Essentials and evaluating cloud connect/backup copy to an Azure VM and storage.

What version of cloud connect should we be using? How is it licenced?

Please review the thread above and decide on what specific scenario are you referring to. If you are looking for a way to store secondary backups in the cloud, then you do not need a Cloud Connect license but either find a service provider that will host your cloud backup repository or set up a VM inside Azure and use it as a repository for your backup copy jobs.

Hi thanks for that.

I have an Azure VM setup. I thought I needed a Cloud Connect licence to setup a Veeam Cloud Gateway? Or can I setup a repository on the Azure VM without using a Cloud Gateway?

You can just add this VM to a backup console either via IP or DNS name and assign repository role to it.

Probably a dumb question from me.... but can you restore a VM from Cloud Connect to Azure (as the target) ... or does it restore only backwards to On-Prem?

It depends on whom you're referring to. Tenant is unable to restore VM to MS Azure from backups stored in cloud repository, while SP can do that without any issues (the second "restoration" backup console will be needed, though). Thanks.

Thanks, I tested a "Restore to Azure" from VBR 9.5 to an MSDN Azure.... worked ok. However I read in the release notes that Azure CSP subscriptions are NOT supported - why is this?

This is a current limitation that only Full Azure admin can restore to such subscription. Thanks.
