This article provides information around Veeam Backup & Replication support for Microsoft Azure Files.
Note that it is possible to protect Azure Files natively with Azure Files Policies in Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure.
This article specifically discusses using Veeam Backup & Replication in Azure only.
To learn more about implementing Azure Files, see the Microsoft Azure Files documentation. You can protect these using Veeam's NAS Backup support.
Ensure you size your setup to allow enough throughput and storage capacity for primary retention.
For on-premises environments you can back up shares configured with Azure File Sync instead. If you must use Veeam Backup & Replication on-premises to protect an Azure File share, place the proxy and primary repository in Azure, and ensure the appropriate connectivity exists in and out of Azure.
Learn more about the components involved in Veeam NAS Backup. Standard requirements around connections and port usage apply.
It is recommended to use an Azure Private Endpoint for off-site backup stored in another region.
