Deployment and Configuration

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

  1. Install or upgrade Veeam Backup & Replication.

Install or upgrade Veeam Backup & Replication up to version 11 (build 11.0.0.837). Microsoft Azure Plug-in for Veeam Backup & Replication will be automatically installed along with Veeam Backup & Replication.

For more information on how to install or upgrade Veeam Backup & Replication, see the Installing Veeam Backup & Replication and Upgrading Veeam Backup & Replication sections in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.

  1. Add a Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure appliance.

You have two options for adding a Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure appliance:

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

After you add a new Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure appliance, open its Web UI component 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 Microsoft Azure User Guide.

  1. Add Azure Blob storage.

Adding Azure Blob storage may be optional or required:

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

For more information on how to deploy Azure Blob storage, see Adding Microsoft Azure Blob Storage.
