Perform Backup to Cloud Repository

To store a copy of your data in a remote location, you can set up the Veeam Agent backup job to create backups in a Veeam Cloud Connect repository.  Using cloud repository as a target location for backup files lets you keep backed-up data offsite without the need to allocate additional storage resources in your infrastructure. If the system crashes or you lose some files, you can restore the necessary information from the backup in the cloud repository.

Creating backups in a Veeam Cloud Connect repository is available in the Workstation and Server editions of Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows.
