Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5
Veeam Cloud Connect Guide


Service providers (SP) can use Veeam Backup & Replication to offer Repository as a Service and Disaster Recovery as a Service to their customers. Veeam Backup & Replication lets SPs set up the cloud infrastructure so that tenants can send their VM data to the cloud and store it there in an easy and secure way.

Veeam Backup & Replication does not offer its own cloud for storing VM data. Instead, it uses SP computing, storage and network resources to configure Veeam Cloud Connect Backup and Veeam Cloud Connect Replication infrastructure components:

  • Cloud repositories — storage locations in the cloud that store backups of tenants' VMs. Cloud repositories can be used as primary storage locations and secondary storage locations to meet the 3-2-1 backup best practice.
  • Replication resources — dedicated computing, storage and network resources in the SP virtualization environment. To set up replication components, the SP configures hardware plans and subscribes tenants to one or several hardware plans. For tenants, hardware plans appear as cloud hosts. Tenants can create VM replicas on cloud hosts and fail over to VM replicas in the cloud in case of a disaster on the production site.

Tenants who want to store their data in the cloud can connect to the SP and write their VM backups to cloud repositories and/or replicate their VMs to cloud hosts.
