Purpose

This article documents configuring an environment so Veeam Backup & Replication Object Repository will use Google Cloud Private Access to connect to a GCS bucket instead of the public IPs.

Connectivity from on-premises to private access can be accomplished via Cloud VPN or Direct/Partner Interconnects to Google Cloud, and Private Access enabled on the VPC Subnet.

Note: Backup repository servers located in GCE need to be on a VPC Subnet where Private Access is enabled. 

Solution

Preparing the Environment (link)

  • Make sure the VPC Subnet(s) that traffic will traverse have Private Google Access enabled:
Enable Private Google Access
  • Configure DNS
    1. Configure DNS servers used by repository servers to have a zone for googleapis.com.
    2. Create DNS A Records for private.googleapis.com pointing to 199.36.153.8, 199.36.153.9, 199.36.153.10, 199.36.153.11. 
    3. Set up a CNAME record for *.googleapis.com to point to private.googleapis.com.
DNS Config
  • For repository servers on-premises, ensure the CloudVPN or Cloud Interconnect uses dynamic routes or has a static route for the 199.36.153.8/30 pointing to the VPC subnet with Private Google Access enabled, and that the subnet is configured to send this traffic to the default internet gateway.
