Step 6. Specify Processing Options

In this article

    At the Processing Options step of the wizard, choose whether you want to use a staging server to perform backup. To learn how Veeam Backup for Google Cloud uses staging servers to protect Cloud SQL instances, see How Backup Works.

    Protecting Instances Without Staging Server

    To back up the selected Cloud SQL instances without a staging server, do the following:

    1. Select the Use production instance option.
    2. Click Choose option.
    3. In the Choose authentication option window, choose the database authentication method that will be used to authenticate against the production Cloud SQL instance.

    If you select the Cloud IAM option, also specify the unique email address associated with the service account that Veeam Backup for Google Cloud will use to access the instance. If you select the Cloud SQL User option, also specify credentials of a user that Veeam Backup for Google Cloud will use to access the instance.

    1. Click Apply.

    Protecting Instances With Staging Server

    To back up the selected Cloud SQL instances using a staging server, select the Use staging server option.

    Note

    When performing backup with a staging server, Veeam Backup for Google Cloud uses the Default Administrator account to send REST API requests to the Cloud SQL instances processed by the backup policy. That is why there is no need to specify credentials for authentication.
