Microsoft Azure Compute Accounts

In this article

    To restore workloads to Microsoft Azure or add Azure archive storage, you must add a Microsoft Azure compute account to Veeam Backup & Replication. When you add a Microsoft Azure compute account, Veeam Backup & Replication imports information about subscriptions and resources associated with this account. During the restore process, Veeam Backup & Replication accesses these resources and uses them to register new VMs in Microsoft Azure.

    If necessary, you can add multiple Microsoft Azure compute accounts to Veeam Backup & Replication. In this case, Veeam Backup & Replication will import information about all subscriptions and resources associated with the provided accounts, and you will be able to use these resources for restore.

    Information about subscriptions and resources is saved to the Veeam Backup & Replication configuration database. You can re-import this information at any time.

    To add a Microsoft Azure compute account, use the Microsoft Azure Compute Account wizard.
