Deployment

In this article

    To start working with Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365, you must deploy the solution to your environment.

    Consider the following:

    • If you have been participating in the public beta testing of Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365, make sure to uninstall the pre-release (BETA) versions of Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 and Veeam Explorers.
    • To use the solution in hybrid Exchange deployment or on-premises organizations with SPN and Kerberos authentication, make sure to install Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 on a server that is located within the domain with the source Microsoft Exchange server.
    • The solution can be deployed to virtual or physical machines or directly to cloud platforms such as Azure or Amazon Web Services (AWS).
    • Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 REST API component can be deployed either on a Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 server or on a separate machine. Installing REST API separately from a Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 server allows you to decrease the load on infrastructure when exploring and restoring data from backups in a web browser window using the Restore Portal. Restore Portal allows users to perform self-service restore. For more information, see Installing REST API on Separate Machine and Configuring REST API and Restore Portal on Separate Machine.
