Support Statement

Google Cloud VMware Engine (GCVE) is a fully compliant and certified full-stack cloud infrastructure sold and supported by Google. You can deploy VMware vSphere-based workloads natively in a dedicated SDDC on Google Cloud and utilize the same applications, tools, processes, and policies that you use today. This environment requires specific preparations to allow Veeam Backup & Replication 10 or later to work with it. Except for the challenge listed below, you can interact with it in Veeam Backup & Replication like any other vSphere environment to backup, restore, and replicate VM workloads.

GCVE uses standard VMware vSphere, vSAN, and NSX versions to operate the service. In addition, general compatibility is given for any Veeam Backup & Replication version that supports the vSphere version used by GCVE.

To make sure that all functionality is available, please set up one of the Solution User accounts, which is intended for third party products to interact with VMware: Here

Because GCVE leverages NSX-T for networking, VMs backed up from or replicated to GCVE will not work with SureBackup.
