Step 4. Select Blob Container
At the Container step of the wizard, specify Azure Blob storage container where you want to store Azure VM backups. If you have not created the storage container beforehand, you have an option to create a new container.
- From the Container drop-down list, select an Azure Blob storage container where VM backups will reside. The Container drop-down list contains only those containers that are added to the selected Azure storage account. If you want to create a storage container, do the following:
- Click Add on the right of the Container field.
- In the New Container window, enter a name for the new storage container.
- If you want to encrypt data stored in Azure Blob storage, select the Enable backup file encryption check box. From the drop-down list, select a password that you want to use to encrypt data. In this case, Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure automatically encrypts backup files stored in this storage.
If you have not added the password beforehand, click the Manage passwords link or the Add button to add a password. For more information on adding passwords, see the Creating Passwords section in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.
