Protecting Microsoft Azure Workloads

In this article

    To protect an Azure VM using Mine with Veeam, perform the following steps:

    1. Add to the backup infrastructure a Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure appliance that will manage backup and restore operations for Azure workloads. For more information, see the Integration with Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure Guide, section Adding Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure Appliances.
    2. Add a blob storage backup repository that will be used to store backups created for the Azure VM. For more information, see the Integration with Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure Guide, section Adding Blob Storage Backup Repositories.
    3. Configure a backup policy that will create backups for the Azure VM. For more information, see the Integration with Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure Guide, section Creating Azure VM Backup Policies.
    4. Configure a backup copy job that will transfer the created backups to a Mine with Veeam repository. For more information, see the Integration with Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure Guide, section Creating Backup Copy Jobs.

    Once the backup policy successfully creates a restore point (either a snapshot or a backup) for the Azure VM, you can perform the following operations to restore the VM:

    • Restore the entire Azure VM to Microsoft Azure. For more information, see the Integration with Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure Guide, section Restoring to Microsoft Azure.
    • Immediately restore the Azure VM to VMware vSphere or Hyper-V environment. For more information, see the Integration with Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure Guide, section Performing Instant Recovery.
    • Restore the Azure VM to a Nutanix AHV cluster. For more information, see the Integration with Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure Guide, section Restoring to Nutanix AHV.
    • Restore the Azure VM to Amazon EC 2. For more information, see the Integration with Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure Guide, section Restoring to Amazon EC2.
    • Restore the Azure VM to Google Cloud. For more information, see the Integration with Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure Guide, section Restore to Google Compute Engine.
    • Restore items of applications such as Microsoft Active Directory, Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SharePoint, Microsoft SQL Server and Oracle Database. For more information, see the Integration with Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure Guide, section Restoring Application Items.

    With Veeam Backup & Replication, you can also back up Azure SQL databases. For the full list of features that Veeam Backup & Replication provides to protect Microsoft Azure workloads, see Integration with Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure Guide.
