Veeam Cloud Connect

Extend your backup to cloud Disaster Recovery

 

Veeam Cloud Connect

Veeam Cloud Connect is the mechanism within Veeam that enables Veeam to add offsite backup to the total protection provided within Veeam. Cloud Connect was introduced with Veeam Version 8. The key new components in Cloud Connect added were:

1) The ability to move the data securely via SSL encryption

2) Support for multi-tenant repositories in the cloud.

Global Data Vault leverages Veeam Cloud connect for all our Veeam customers.

With our implementation of Veeam Cloud Connect, you get:

  • Offsite backups to a secure repository through the security of an SSL connection
  • Full control and visibility to access and restore data directly from the backup console
  • End-to-end encryption for the best possible security
  • Global Data Vault’s full monitoring and management ensuring the quality essential in a true DR solution

Best of all, Cloud Connect is built right into Veeam V8 – so there is no additional licensing cost to you!

A local backup repository can offer very speedy restore and/or spin up capabilities, but Veeam Cloud Connect works with or without a local backup repository – potentially a large savings. Let us help you decide which alternative is best for your circumstances.

Only Global Data Vault adds the ability to spin up DR instances of these servers at no additional cost to you – making us the logical and cost effective choice for your Cloud Disaster Recovery solution.

Global Data Vault’s Web Based Portal

Our web based portal shows your data protection status with drill downs to the available restore points. The restore point console runs on any browser and is tablet/mobile compatible.
