Frequently Asked Questions

Does Google Cloud back up your data?
While Google ensures the security and protection of the underlying GCP infrastructure, users still retain the responsibility to protect and secure other facets of the stack, depending on the workloads. The more Google manages (from IaaS to PaaS to SaaS), the more they are responsible for, but users always retain responsibility for their data on GCP.
Why you should back up Google Cloud?
Protecting the data in GCP remains the responsibility of the end-user, as referenced by the Google Shared Responsibility Matrix. Without backup and recovery, applications and data on GCP cannot be restored to overcome data loss in the event of accidental deletion, cybersecurity threats and ransomware, malicious insiders, outage, etc. Veeam delivers Google Cloud-native backup and recovery that’s cost-effective and secure to protect all data in GCP against any cloud data loss.
How does Veeam's Google backup and recovery work?
Veeam Backup for Google Cloud Platform can automatically create and manage snapshots and backups of Compute Engine instances (and attached disks), including VM configuration. Backup chains can be created with image-level backups or with snapshots. Image-level backups can include full and incremental backups. Cloud-native snapshots include point-in-time snapshots. Recovery can be performed at the full- and file-level in as little as seconds.
