Veeam Backup ~ Overview

OneNet uses Veeam Backup & Replication to offer cloud repository as a service (BaaS) and disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS) to their customers. Veeam Backup & Replication lets OnetNet tenants send their VM data to the cloud and store it there in an easy and secure way.

Veeam Backup & Replication does not offer its own cloud for storing VM data. Instead, it uses OneNet computing, storage and network resources to configure Veeam Cloud Connect Backup and Veeam Cloud Connect Replication infrastructure components:

  • Cloud repositories — storage locations in the cloud that store backups of tenants' VMs. Cloud repositories can be used as primary storage locations and secondary storage locations to meet the 3-2-1 backup best practice.
  • Replication resources — dedicated computing, storage and network resources in the OneNet virtualization environment. To set up replication components, OneNet configures hardware plans and subscribes tenants to these. For tenants, hardware plans appear as cloud hosts. Tenants can create VM replicas on cloud hosts and fail over to VM replicas in the cloud in case of a disaster on the production site.

Tenants who want to store their data in the cloud can connect to OneNet and write their VM backups to cloud repositories and/or replicate their VMs to cloud hosts.

Hosted offsite backups: Get your backups offsite to a hosted cloud repository through a secure SSL connection.

Complete visibility and control: Access and recover data in hosted backup repositories directly from the backup console.

A modern backup architecture: Leverage Veeam’s modern backup technology, including Backup Copy jobs with Built-in WAN Acceleration, forever incremental backups, parallel processing for VMs and VM disks, GFS (grandfather-father-son) retention policies and more―all built into one product.

End-to-end encryption: Rest easy by encrypting all data at source (before it leaves your network perimeter), in flight and at rest, without negatively impacting the data reduction ratios of built-in compression and WAN Acceleration.

The 3-2-1 rule states that you need to keep three copies of your data, stored on two types of media, with one copy being off site. Getting backups off site can be challenging due to limited bandwidth, exploding data volumes and a lack of resources required to build or maintain a true offsite backup repository.

With Veeam Cloud Connect, you can master the 3-2-1 rule without dumping money and resources into a second site or adding bandwidth—just leverage cloud backup repository services from a Veeam Cloud & Service Provider and take advantage of Veeam’s Built-in WAN Acceleration technology and so much more.
