SP can use Veeam Backup & Replication to offer Repository as a Service to their customers.
Cloud repositories have a multi-tenant architecture. Veeam Backup & Replication creates a storage abstraction layer and virtually partitions storage resources of a cloud repository. As a result, the SP can expose cloud repository resources to several tenants and store tenants’ data in the cloud in an isolated and segregated way. Veeam Backup & Replication establishes a secure channel to transfer VM data to and from the cloud repository and offers data encryption capabilities to protect tenants’ data at rest.
All data protection and disaster recovery tasks targeted at the cloud repository are performed by tenants on their own. Tenants can set up necessary jobs themselves and perform tasks on Veeam backup servers deployed on their side. Tenants can perform the following operations:
- Back up VMs to the cloud repository
- Copy VM backup files to the cloud repository
- Restore VM data from the cloud repository
- Perform file copy operations between tenant’s side and the cloud repository (Manual operations only. Scheduled file copy jobs are not supported.)
