Veeam Cloud Connect for Enterprise – How it Works

Veeam offers enterprise-grade backup solutions for all your data. Their flagship product, Veeam Backup & Replication, protects physical and virtual workloads for physical and cloud-based data protection. Veeam Cloud Connect for Enterprise provides a turnkey solution that allows businesses to protect data in the cloud without needing to invest in expensive cloud infrastructure.

It is a perfect fit for organizations seeking a reliable and scalable solution for protecting their mission-critical data. It works in any environment, on any platform, and with any storage system. Veeam Cloud Connect extends its data protection solution to the cloud.

Many businesses use Veeam Backup & Replication to protect their physical servers and data, but it has one big problem: backups are expensive.

Veeam Cloud Connect uses the free version of Veeam Backup & Replication to backup data to the public cloud and protects the data within it from data loss using Veeam Cloud Gateway. Veeam Cloud Gateway provides an enterprise-class data protection gateway that securely moves data between on-premises resources and the public cloud. It encrypts data in transit and provides firewall and intrusion detection capabilities to ensure that your data remains secure.

How Veeam Cloud Connect for Enterprise works

Cloud Connect extends Veeam Backup & Replication to the cloud, allowing you to back up and restore files in the public cloud. The solution comes in two editions: Cloud Connect and Cloud Connect Plus.

Cloud Connect is the free edition that comes with Veeam Backup & Replication. You can use it to back up files to the public cloud. The files are encrypted, and the backups are stored on your Veeam Backup & Replication Server (VBR Server). The free edition also includes the ability to perform a full database restore.
