Extending Backup to the Cloud

Everyone needs a place to store their backups off site. But many organizations don't have a second site, and rotating tapes or removable media off site is cumbersome. Increasingly, customers are turning to the cloud as a better alternative.

This creates a huge opportunity for service providers. Veeam Cloud Connect helps you seize the opportunity – to acquire new customers, build recurring revenue and enter the fast-growing cloud services market.

We have provided offsite backup and disaster recovery for Veeam customers since 2011. Veeam Cloud Connect makes it easier to offer these services at scale.

How It Works

Veeam Cloud Connect integrates hosted backup repositories (called cloud repositories) directly into the Veeam backup console:

  • Your customers simply click “Add Service Provider” and enter the credentials you’ve given them.
  • Their cloud repositories appear in their backup infrastructure.

That's it! There’s no VPN, no separate console, and cloud repositories work like other backup repositories – except they’re available even if the primary backup or data center is lost.

10-Minute Setup

Veeam Cloud Connect makes it easy to be a target for Veeam backups – as a standalone offering, or as part of your Veeam-powered backup service. With a single server and in just 10 minutes, you can configure a cloud infrastructure for Veeam.

That infrastructure includes a cloud gateway that:

  • Virtualizes network traffic between you and your customers.
  • Securely transfers data over an SSL/TLS connection, using a single port to simplify firewall configuration and eliminate the need for a VPN connection.

You can even deploy multiple cloud gateways to enable high availability and automatic load balancing.

Veeam Cloud Connect was designed from the ground up for your multi-tenant hosting environment:

  • Segment a single backup repository into one or more cloud repositories, each with its own specified tenant.
  • Manage resource allocations and expiration dates for each tenant.

Cloud repositories are completely isolated from one another. Customers can also encrypt their backups – this is done at the source, before data leaves the customer’s network and without increasing bandwidth consumption. Because unlike a general purpose WAN accelerator, Veeam’s Built-in WAN Acceleration maintains data reduction ratios even with encrypted data streams.

Veeam Cloud Connect provides multi-tenant support, eliminates the need for VPN connections, and simpifies firewall configuration.
