Put simply, Veeam Cloud Connect is a Backup Repository. It looks and acts exactly the same as a regular backup repository with the key difference that it is hosted in the Cloud.
We are members of the Veeam Cloud Provider Directory and have many years of experience working with on premise solutions and with hosted proxies. We add as much value as possible to our Cloud connect service with the following key features
Users can configure the following jobs and perform the following tasks against the cloud repository:
If you have Veeam enterprise plus licensing you can make use of Veeam’s built in WAN acceleration tool. Veeam 8 Enterprise plus includes a purpose build WAN acceleration tool, specifically for moving existing Backup Jobs to an offsite location. The WAN acceleration engine can help speed up and reduce WAN traffic by as much as 50X. There are no additional charges for the WAN acceleration Service. Cached data will consume part of the assigned storage quota.
If Veeam enterprise plus licensing is not available then, the solution will still work but no WAN acceleration will be used to send the data offsite.
Depending on the volume of data being protected and your internet connectivity it may be necessary for us to ship the initial seed of data. When using seeding we recommend all backup jobs are configured for encryption. This will protect the data while it is being physically shipped to the Data Centre.
There are no setup charges or any other charges for data seeds during the initial setup.
Veeam Cloud Connect requires version 8 as a minimum.
You can use any licence to use Veeam Cloud Connect. If you want to use advanced features such as WAN acceleration then you will need the Enterprise licence.
No problem, we will be able to help. There are a number of different features available such as WAN optimisation that require a certain edition of Veeam. We will let you know what you have an what options are available to you.
VMhosts recommend the use of backup copy jobs to be configured to replicate to the offsite repository and replicated to us over a secure site to site VPN. A backup copy job is just like a regular Veeam backup job with the added advantage of being able to make use of independent retention schemes and recovery points allowing for a truly offsite solution.
Yes. Not only are our datacentres physically secure, with access restricted with bio-metric entry systems in place and 24/7 security, but any backup data is transferred over secure SSL connections and all data is stored in the UK
The Veeam Cloud Connect Infrastructure is fully managed by our internal support team. This service requires no extra hardware. This service is not designed as a complete replacement for local backup repositories. Built into the existing Veeam Backup & Replication management console, our “Service Provider” can be added using the provided URL, port, username and password. No other configuration is required.
Once the service provider has been added the Cloud Backup repository is made available and can be used in almost the exact same way as any other repository available in the inventory
Absolutely! Veeam and cloud recovery were built to compliment one another. We can guarantee CPU, HDD and RAM resource on our enterprise cloud, to ensure that should the worst happen your servers will be up and running again in no time, keeping your business going whatever disaster you are facing
