External Repository

In this article

    An external repository is a read-only repository. You can use Veeam Backup & Replication to copy, import and/or restore backups created by Veeam Backup for AWS, Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure and Veeam Backup for Google from external to on-premises repositories. This way, you can perform data migration between cloud, on-premises and virtual infrastructures.

    Veeam Backup & Replication supports the following types of external repositories:

    • Amazon S3
    • Azure Blob
    • Google Cloud

    To start working with backups created by Veeam Backup for AWS, Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure and Veeam Backup for Google, you must add a repository that contains backups of Amazon EC2 instances, Azure VMs or Google Cloud instances to the Veeam Backup & Replication infrastructure as an external repository. After that, you can perform the following operations:

     

    External RepositoryNote:

    • During the process of copying backups, or restore to Amazon EC2 or Microsoft Azure, data of EC2 instances and Azure VMs may migrate from one geographic location to another. In this case, Veeam Backup & Replication displays a warning and stores a record about data migration to job or task session details. For more information, see Locations.
    • You cannot use an external repository as a target for backup or backup copy jobs.
