One of the new and greatest features of Veeam® Backup & Replication™ v8 is Veeam Cloud Connect. With it, Veeam users can easily send backup copies offsite to remote locations managed by Veeam Service Providers. Also, Service Providers can use Cloud Connect to build their own remote repositories and offer their customers Backup Storage as a Service.
The architecture of Cloud Connect was built from the ground up to be multi-tenant and scalable. Its main advantage is a direct internet connection with a single TCP port protected by SSL encryption, which removes the two main hurdles of the past: VPN tunnels and dedicated repositories.
This Reference Architecture guide will help service providers design, configure and deploy a complete Veeam Cloud Connect infrastructure. It describes a possible architecture of a service provider offering Backup Storage as a Service and provides a deep-dive into architecture components.
