Support for Veeam Backup for Public Clouds

Starting from Veeam Backup & Replication 12.1 (build 12.1.0.2131), the SP can configure backup copy jobs for backups of public cloud appliances.

This feature allows the SP to copy backups of cloud appliances to regular backup repositories in the regular Veeam Backup & Replication backup file format. To learn more, see the Backup Copy section in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.

The SP can configure backup copy jobs for backups created by the following Veeam products:

To start working with those backups, the SP must add the repository that contains backups of Amazon EC2 instances or Azure VMs to the Veeam Backup & Replication infrastructure as an external repository. Then, they can use this external repository as a source backup repository and use a repository on the SP side as a target backup repository for backup copy.

Before the SP starts working with backup copy jobs for Amazon EC2 or Microsoft Azure data, complete the following prerequisites:
