  5. In the Backup repository field, click Configure.
  6. In the Backup Resources window, click Add.
  7. In the Add Quota window, specify the following settings:
  1. In the Backup repository list, choose an underlying backup repository on the Veeam Cloud Connect server that will actually provide storage resources for the cloud repository.
  2. In the Cloud repository name field, type the name of a new repository.
  3. In the Quota section, specify 500 GB.
  4. In the VMs quota section, specify 20.
  5. Click OK.

Allocate Cloud Repository Resources

  1. At the Billing step of the wizard, check the subscription plan that is assigned to the company.

This subscription plan must include charge rates for cloud resources, as described in Specify Cloud Rates in Subscription Plan section.

  1. At the Bandwidth step of the wizard, you can limit the amount of traffic coming from the company to the cloud, and specify the maximum number of processing tasks that can run concurrently on the cloud repository.

For this scenario, it is not required to limit the amount of traffic or the number of tasks. You can keep the default values at this step.

  1. Click Finish to save the company configuration.
