Step 5. Specify Backup Proxy and Repository
To specify a backup proxy server and backup repository, do the following:
- From the Backup proxy drop-down list, select a backup proxy server that you want to use to process data during a backup job session.
- From the Backup repository drop-down list, select a backup repository to which you want to save your data.
You can select a standard backup repository or backup repository that was extended with object storage.
When selecting an extended backup repository, all data will be compressed and backed up directly to object storage; Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 saves only cache to the extended backup repository.
If you want to extend a backup job with backup copy capabilities, you must specify an extended backup repository.
