Backup directly to cloud storage
Since Veeam v12, it is possible to backup resources and then store the backup chain in a cloud storage. From the Veeam console, click on Backup Infrastructure then on Add repositories.
All Backup Repository type appear, click on Object storage.
Select the type of Object Storage. I choose to use my Azure Account.
Select the Azure Storage Object type.
Enter the name of the repository then click on Next.
Click on Add then enter Account and Shared Key. Click on OK then on Next.
Select Container and select or create a new folder. Click on Next. The Container must be created on Azure portal
Validate the following windows then proceed to the creation of the repository.
I created a backup job and use the cloud repository. This repository contains the files of the backup chain.
Per-VM Backpup Chain
Among the many new features, Veeam v12 allows you to move a VM between different backup jobs. This allows you to perform a health check. In case it is necessary to retry the backup of a VM (following a failure for example), it is now possible to move the concerned VM to backup only the latter. This avoids to backup all the VMs of a backup job if one or more VMs fail. This operation offers several advantages :
- Move VMs between backup jobs
- Perform the health check separately
- Perform an Active-full for a limited number of VMs
- Retry a backup job for a limited number of VMs
From the Veeam console, open Home tab then click on Disk. Select the desired VM then click on Move Backup in the ribbon.
Select the destination job then click on OK.
Moving backup is in progress…
VMs has been moved.
As for VM, it is possible to move a backup job from one repository to another. Right click on the desired job and
