Data Protection

With Microsoft Azure Plug-in for Veeam Backup & Replication, you can protect the following workloads:

  • Azure VMs
  • SQL databases
  • Azure file shares

To protect these workloads, you need to create backup policies. A backup policy is a collection of settings that define the way backup operations are performed: what data to back up, where backups must be stored, when the backup process must start and so on. For more information, see Creating Backup Policies.

After the policies are created, you can manage them as described in Managing Backup Policies.

Additional Data Protection Options for Azure VMs

Using the Veeam Backup & Replication console, you can also add an additional layer of protection for your infrastructure by creating backup copy jobs and backup to tape jobs for Azure VMs.

The backup copy jobs allow you to create and keep multiple instances of the same backed-up data in different locations. For more information, see Creating Backup Copy Jobs for Azure VMs.

The backup to tape jobs allow you to keep backups of VMs on tape devices. For more information, see Copying Azure VM Backups to Tapes.
