Deployment and Configuration

In this article

    To configure integration of Veeam Backup & Replication with Veeam Backup for AWS, complete the following steps:

    1. Install or upgrade Veeam Backup & Replication.

    Install or upgrade Veeam Backup & Replication up to the required version. AWS Plug-in for Veeam Backup & Replication will be automatically installed along with Veeam Backup & Replication.

    For more information on how to install or upgrade Veeam Backup & Replication, see the Installing Veeam Backup & Replication and Upgrading Veeam Backup & Replication sections in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.

    1. Install AWS Plug-in for Veeam Backup & Replication.

    Install AWS Plug-in for Veeam Backup & Replication on the same machine where Veeam Backup & Replication is installed. For more information on installation, see the Installing Plug-In section.

    1. Add a Veeam Backup for AWS appliance.

    You have two options for adding a Veeam Backup for AWS appliance:

    • If you have already installed Veeam Backup for AWS, you can connect an existing Veeam Backup for AWS appliance to the Veeam Backup & Replication infrastructure. For more information, see Connecting to Existing Veeam Backup for AWS Appliances.
    • If you have not installed Veeam Backup for AWS, you can deploy a new Veeam Backup for AWS appliance in the Veeam Backup & Replication console. In this case, Veeam Backup & Replication deploys Veeam Backup for AWS on an Amazon EC2 instance automatically. For more information on how to deploy a new appliance, see Deploying New Veeam Backup for AWS Appliances.

    After you have added an appliance, we recommend you to set up configuration backup to reduce the risk of data loss. For more information, see Performing Configuration Backup and Restore.

    1. [Optional, for newly added Veeam Backup for AWS appliance] Configure worker instances.

    After you add a new Veeam Backup for AWS appliance, open its Web UI and configure network settings for worker instances. For more information on worker instances and how to configure them, see the Worker Instances section in the Veeam Backup for AWS User Guide.

    1. Add standard backup repositories.

    Adding standard backup repositories may be optional or required:

    • If you connect to an existing Veeam Backup for AWS appliance, you can omit adding standard backup repositories since all configured S3 backup repositories are added to the Veeam Backup & Replication infrastructure automatically. However, you can deploy new repositories if required.
    • If you deploy a new Veeam Backup for AWS appliance, you may require to add standard backup repositories — but only in case you want backup policies to produce image-level backups.

    For more information on how to deploy standard backup repositories, see Deploying Standard Backup Repositories.

    1. [Optional] Add archive repositories

    Add archive repositories if you want to store image-level backups for long periods of time at lower costs. For more information on how to add archive repositories, see Deploying Archive Backup Repository.
