How it works

Veeam Cloud Connect presents your customers with a “cloud host” that they can replicate VMs to:

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


That's it! There’s no VPN, no separate console, and cloud hosts work like other replication targets – except customers can provision them on demand and without having to maintain a second site.

Veeam Cloud Connect includes multi-tenant support, requires only a single port, and securely transfers data over SSL/TLS (no VPN required).

Why it’s better

No dependency on third-party software

A “naked” hypervisor is all that’s required. You don’t need to acquire, learn or maintain additional technology – for orchestration, network extension, WAN acceleration, etc. – because everything is available right out of the box. Multi-tenancy is even built in, so you can securely host multiple customers on the same hardware, with complete isolation between tenants.

Expedited onboarding

A single port is all that’s needed. Veeam Cloud Connect encapsulates and encrypts all network traffic – for management, replication and even inter-VM communication – to securely transmit data over a single port using SSL/TLS. There’s no need to set up and maintain VPN connections or open multiple ports.

Automated network reconfiguration

Eliminates the high cost and headaches of reconfiguring networks for DR testing or full or partial failover. Veeam network extension appliances preserve communication with and between running VMs regardless of their location.

Bandwidth friendly features

Built-in WAN acceleration, Bitlooker, seeding and more allow you to provide DRaaS to customers with slow or unreliable WAN connections or a large number of VMs. Customers can even replicate from backups in cloud repositories you host for them with Veeam Cloud Connect Backup, further reducing the amount of data that must be sent across the WAN.

Broad coverage

Because Veeam replicates at the hypervisor layer, you can offer DRaaS to any customer in your target market regardless of the storage, applications and operating systems they use – now and in the future. Support for both VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V further maximizes your addressable market.

Assigning a "hardware plan" to a tenant defines the CPU, memory, storage and network resources available to them.

Don’t miss out

Demand for DRaaS is on the rise, thanks to growing acceptance of hosted solutions and the need for 24x7 access to applications and data.

Veeam is the ideal way for you to participate – and succeed – in this fast-growing market:

  • Easy licensing, including monthly rental by the VM and no VM minimum
  • A market and channel at the ready, including 230,000 current Veeam customers, 3,500 new Veeam customers each month and 45,000 channel partners
  • Zero competition from Veeam: We don’t offer our own cloud or our own DR services – instead, we enable our partners to!
