A backup proxy server does the following:
- It helps you leverage network traffic when backing up or restoring organizations data.
- It hosts a backup repository where the backed up data is stored.
A backup proxy server participates in the event of the following:
- When backing up data of Microsoft Office 365 and on-premises Microsoft organizations.
- When working with the backup content via Veeam Explorers.
Consider the following:
- A default backup proxy server is the machine running Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365, that is, the management server.
It is recommended that after you install Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365, you configure an additional set of backup proxy servers to manage your data in a more efficient manner.
- A backup proxy server can be deployed on a physical or virtual machine.
- A server with Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 and backup proxy servers must be deployed within the same or a trusted domain.
- Each backup proxy server can process one or several organizations.
- An organization can be processed by one or several backup proxies.
- A backup proxy server is responsible for sending email notifications about backup job completion results.
To send email notifications, backup proxy servers use the same SMTP server that is configured, as described in Configuring Notification Settings.
- No backup proxy server is involved when:
- You add a new organization to the program scope, as described in Microsoft Organizations Management.
