Veeam Cloud Connect is the underpinning software feature within Veeam Backup and Replication that allows us to maintain a secure, centrally managed environment for hosting off-site backups and replicas.
What are the benefits of Veeam Cloud Connect?
With Veeam Cloud Connect, businesses can connect to a Veeam Cloud & Service Provider (VCSP) and send their backups to the provider’s secure cloud repository. This eliminates the need for businesses to invest in and maintain their own off-site storage infrastructure.
Veeam Cloud Connect also enables businesses to recover their data quickly in case of a disaster by allowing them to restore backups directly from the cloud repository. Additionally, Veeam Cloud Connect includes built-in security features such as data encryption and secure transfer protocols to ensure that backups are protected while in transit and at rest.
Cloud Connect is a good solution for businesses that want to take advantage of the cost and scalability benefits of cloud storage, while still maintaining control of their backup and recovery processes.
What is Veeam Cloud Connect used for?
Veeam Cloud Connect is packaged as our Secure Cloud Backup with Immutability service. Cloud connect backup is a cost-effective security solution where customer’s data is transferred to the cloud and stored there as a reliable and immutable backup repository.
Secure Cloud Backup with Immutability is recommended for any organisation that uses Veeam. Specifically, where companies need to protect their data from Ransomware and other threats. We have seen a big influx of enquiries from sectors such as Education, Local Government, Universities, Charities, Legal and Financial Services.
Our backup solution is an easy and straightforward way to backup and archive your data using Veeam Cloud Connect Backup. Our per TB billing model is simple, and you can rest assured that there are no hidden charges – what you see is what you will pay. This includes Immutability, which gives you cast-iron protection against any Ransomware, data corruption, malware, malicious or accidental data deletion.
If any malicious activity targets your primary data, you are safe in the knowledge you are protected. Data is critical to all businesses, therefore being able to obtain an untouched version of source data (that can be recovered from any failure) is hugely beneficial. The Object Lock feature means you can copy your data into a compliant repository offsite and apply the Immutability feature so data cannot be deleted or changed and is therefore protected from malicious activity.
Veeam Cloud Connect also underpins Veeam Backup and Replication which allows us to maintain a secure, centrally managed environment for hosting off-site replicas (DRaaS) as part of your business’ disaster recovery plan. Secure Disaster Recovery as a Service is recommended for any organisation that uses Veeam Backup and Replication and needs to restore their data quickly in the event of a disaster recovery scenario.
Our service allows you to launch your VMs via our Cloud Console. By using Veeam Cloud Connect you can have true ‘anywhere management’ of your disaster recovery environment and failover plans, which in turn allows you to drastically improve recover times and gives you a single pane of glass for your DR environment. By automating your failover plans and testing your disaster recovery plan with ease, you could cut your costs by saving downtime and not needing to store data in a second site.
We also utilise Veeam technology in our Secure Cloud Backup for Microsoft 365 solution. which we recommend to any company that uses Microsoft 365. Secure Cloud Backup for Microsoft 365 is a co-managed service that gives you comprehensive backup and replication for your Microsoft Office 365 suite, as well as purpose-built backup and recovery for Microsoft Teams. This includes unlimited storage and a tailored retention policy for Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, OneDrive for Business and Teams.
Veeam Object lock means the data you store on the cloud cannot be modified and it cannot be encrypted, thus rendering the malware ineffective. No one, not even those with admin rights, can change the data, thus also protecting it from employees with malicious intent.
Veeam Cloud Connect enables us to provide these vital cloud solutions to your business to ensure your data backups and replicas are safe from malware and malicious activity, giving you peace of mind that your business data will always be protected.
