Backup Infrastructure Components
After you integrate Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure with Veeam Backup & Replication, the backup infrastructure will consist of the following components:
- Veeam Backup & Replication
An application where you can manage backup infrastructure components, perform restore from image-level backups and snapshots of Microsoft Azure VMs, copy Azure VM backups to secondary repositories and tapes, and perform other operations.
- Azure Plug-in for Veeam Backup & Replication
An installer component that deploys services required for integration with Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure.
- Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure appliance
The main component that performs backup and restore operations in the Microsoft Azure environment.
In the Veeam Backup & Replication console, you can connect to an existing Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure appliance or launch the deployment of a new one.
- Worker instances
Temporary Linux-based Microsoft Azure VMs that are created by Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure to perform backup and restore operations. A worker instance is deployed for each VM included in the running backup policy or restore process. After the backup or restore process completes, the worker instance is immediately removed.
- Microsoft Azure Blob storage
Microsoft Azure Blob storage that Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure uses as backup repositories to store image-level backups of Azure VMs.
- Secondary repositories and tape devices
