Deployment and Configuration

To configure integration of Veeam Backup & Replication with Veeam Backup for AWS, complete the following steps:

  1. Install or upgrade Veeam Backup & Replication.

If you have already installed Veeam Backup & Replication, upgrade it to version 10a (build 10.0.1.4854). For more information on installation and upgrade, see the Installing Veeam Backup & Replication and Upgrading Veeam Backup & Replication sections in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.

  1. Install or upgrade AWS Plug-in for Veeam Backup & Replication.

Install or upgrade AWS Plug-in for Veeam Backup & Replication on the same machine where Veeam Backup & Replication is installed. For more information on installation and upgrade, see the Installing Plug-In and Upgrading Plug-In sections.

  1. Add a Veeam Backup for AWS appliance.

You have two options for adding a Veeam Backup for AWS appliance:

  • If you have already installed Veeam Backup for AWS, you can connect an existing Veeam Backup for AWS appliance to the Veeam Backup & Replication infrastructure. For more information, see Connecting to Existing Veeam Backup for AWS Appliances.
  • If you have not installed Veeam Backup for AWS, you can deploy a new Veeam Backup for AWS appliance in the Veeam Backup & Replication console. In this case, Veeam Backup & Replication deploys Veeam Backup for AWS on an Amazon EC2 instance automatically. For more information on how to deploy a new appliance, see Deploying New Veeam Backup for AWS Appliances.
  1. [For a newly added Veeam Backup for AWS appliance] Configure worker instances.

After you add a new Veeam Backup for AWS appliance, open its Web UI and configure network settings for worker instances. For more information on worker instances and how to configure them, see the Worker Instances section in the Veeam Backup for AWS User Guide.

  1. Add Amazon S3 repositories.

Adding S3 repositories may be optional or required:

  • If you connect to an existing Veeam Backup for AWS appliance, you can omit adding S3 repositories since all configured S3 repositories are added to the Veeam Backup & Replication infrastructure automatically. However, you can add repositories if required.
  • If you deploy a new Veeam Backup for AWS appliance, you may require to add S3 repositories — but only in case you want backup policies to produce image-level backups.

For more information on how to deploy S3 repositories, see Adding S3 Repositories.
