Azure Blob Object Storage
Support for Azure Blob object storage varies between products. The following limitations currently apply to all Veeam products:
Veeam manages the entire data lifecycle of backups stored within Azure. As such, configuring the storage account with these features is unnecessary, and doing so can result in data loss. More details are available in the Object Storage Repository Considerations and Limitations section of the Veeam Backup & Replication user guide.
For Azure, it is recommended that you use Azure Storage Firewall policies to restrict access to specific IP addresses.
Note that if you choose to use Microsoft Defender for Storage you may effectively double the cost associated with your storage account. Defender for Storage detects activity anomalies, however, comes with an additional cost per transaction.
