Deployment and Configuration

In this article

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

    1. Install or upgrade Veeam Backup & Replication.

    Install or upgrade Veeam Backup & Replication up to the required version. GCP Plug-in for Veeam Backup & Replication will be automatically installed along with Veeam Backup & Replication.

    For more information, 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 GCP appliance.

    You have two options for adding a Veeam Backup for GCP appliance:

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

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

    1. Add standard backup repositories.

    Adding standard backup repositories may be optional or required:

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

    For more information on how to deploy standard repositories, see Adding Standard Backup Repositories.

    1. [Optional] Add archive repositories

    Add archive repositories if you want to store image-level backups of VM instances for long periods of time at lower costs. For more information, see Adding Archive Repository.
