External Repository

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

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

  • Amazon S3
  • Azure Blob

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

 

External Repository Note:

  • During the process of copying backups, or restore to Amazon EC2 or Microsoft Azure, data of EC 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.
