Why Cloud Connect
Everyone needs a place to store their backups off site. But many organisations don't have a second site, and rotating tapes or removable media off site is cumbersome. Increasingly, customers are turning to the cloud as a better alternative.
How It Works
Veeam Cloud Connect integrates hosted backup repositories (called cloud repositories) directly into the Veeam backup console:
- You simply click “Add Service Provider” and enter the credentials that we provide you with.
- The cloud repositories appear in the backup infrastructure.
That's it! There’s no VPN, no separate console, and cloud repositories work like other backup repositories – except they’re available even if the primary backup or data center is lost.
No VPN but is it secure?
Veeam Cloud Connect securely transfers data over an SSL/TLS connection, using a single port to simplify firewall configuration and eliminate the need for a VPN connection
