Veeam Cloud Connect

Secure backup with end-to-end encryption
 

What is Veeam Cloud Connect for Service Providers?

Veeam Cloud Connect is a component of Veeam Software that enables the connectivity between your data center(s) and a Veeam Cloud Service Provider (VCSP) such as Global Data Vault. It gives you the ability to securely transfer data via SSL encryption without needing a hardware VPN appliance or similar functionality, thereby reducing overhead in both cost and labor. It helps provide us with multi-tenant repositories, so you are guaranteed to have your own allocated space and transparent billing.

As a Platinum Partner, GDV exclusively utilizes Veeam Cloud Connect (VCC) with all of our customers. VCC’s encryption begins at your facility, so your data is encrypted at the source, in-flight, and at rest in GDV’s repository, all without a penalty from deduplication and compression that Veeam’s WAN Acceleration provides. Oh yeah, that’s built-in too. WAN acceleration may require additional hardware based on the global cache required, but your data does *not* need to be unencrypted and re-encrypted to pass through the accelerator.

VCC can work in two ways; by copying data produced by your backup jobs offsite, or by enabling replication of virtual machines offsite, leaving them in a “ready” state in the event of an outage, or both. Veeam Backup and Replication will either immediately send data as backups of workloads complete or at a scheduled time. We will work with you to determine the most efficient way to stay within your SLAs.

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

A local backup repository offers the fastest recoverability options for local issues, but Veeam Cloud Connect works with or without a local backup repository. Let us help you decide which alternative is best for your environment. Global Data Vault also adds the ability to spin up DR instances of your workloads at no additional cost to you.
