Managing Backup Repositories

Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure uses blob containers as target locations for image-level backups of Azure VMs and Azure SQL databases. To store backups in blob containers, configure backup repositories. A repository is a specific folder created by Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure in a blob container.


A backup repository must not be managed by multiple backup appliances simultaneously. Retention sessions running on different backup appliances may corrupt backups stored in the repository, which may result in unpredictable data loss.
