Adding Microsoft Azure Blob Storage

In this article

    Microsoft Azure Plug-in for Veeam Backup & Replication uses Azure Blob storage as target locations to keep image-level backups of Azure VM backups. In the Veeam Backup & Replication console, you can deploy new Blob storage or connect to existing Blob storage.

    Depending on your needs, you will need to follow the instructions from one of the following sections.

    Connecting to Existing Azure Blob Storage

    All Blob storage that have been already configured on a Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure appliance are added automatically to the Veeam Backup & Replication infrastructure when you connect to this appliance.

    If Blob storage that is already added to the Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure infrastructure is not available in the Veeam Backup & Replication infrastructure, follow the instructions provided in the Editing Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure Appliance Settings section. At the Repositories step of the Edit Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure Appliance wizard, specify credentials to be used to access the storage and click Apply, and the storage will be added to the Veeam Backup & Replication infrastructure.

    Note

    If you do not want to add to the Veeam Backup & Replication infrastructure the Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure appliance where Blob storage is deployed or you not have an option (for example, your product license is not supported), follow the instructions provided in the Adding External Azure Blob Storage section in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide. Note that in this case, restore from backups stored in this Blob storage will work as described in the How Restore to Microsoft Azure Works section in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.

    Deploying New Azure Blob Storage

    If you want to deploy new Blob storage, follow instructions from this section. Note that when you deploy Blob storage in the Veeam Backup & Replication console, they are added to the Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure infrastructure and are also displayed in the Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure infrastructure.

    To deploy new Blob storage, do the following:

    1. Launch the Add External Repository wizard
    2. Specify a Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure appliance
    3. Specify Azure account settings
    4. Select a blob container
    5. Wait for the repository to be added to the infrastructure
    6. Finish working with the wizard

    There is a misspelling right here:

     

    I want to let the Veeam Documentation Team know about that.
