NEW Veeam Agents for Fog Backup Options

As a result, it turns out that your content does not self-protect when it is stored on public cloud IaaS like Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud( Amazon EC2 ) and Azure VMs. Owners of Veeam have used them to safeguard their cloud-hosted tasks for as long as they have existed. In fact, for more than three years, Veeam Backup for AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud — our cloud-native appliances— have also been able to protect against IaaS and PaAS. Numerous cloud-focused functions and improvements, including NEW sky integrated brokers that are optimized for AWS and Azure, were added to V12. Let’s examine the precise circumstances under which brokers are required for sky backup, the locations in which they have been optimized and integrated, and the operation of these agents.

Officials for sky storage

According to our most recent Cloud Protection Trends Report, 58 % of businesses continue to protect their data with third-party agents installed on each cloud instance.

On the surface, this seems strange given that native manufacturing has been around for a while. However, according to the same report, 70 % of these cloud-hosted tasks were created by on-site virtual and physical devices as part of a lift and push motion. These applications, which haven’t always been refactored for the sky, frequently gain from the benefits that an agent-based approach can offer — benefits that native tooling is unable to provide with snapshots alone.

Advantages of agent-based storage

  • Application awareness: The major benefit of application-aware processing is the guaranteed, proper recovery of your protected applications without any data loss. Application-aware processing is a Veeam technology that’s used to quiesce applications that run on a cloud VM to create a transactionally consistent backup. The agents are also aware of the applications that run on the OS and can talk directly with it to retrieve and interact with thatdata. This is especially true at-scale in multi-terabyte VMs, where it also helps to alleviate any issues that may arise when you’re snapshotting machines of this size.
  • Veeam Explorers: Knowledge of your protected application also unlocks the Veeam Explorers, which enables hassle-free granular recovery at the in-guest level for popular applications like Exchange, SharePoint, Active Directory, SQL Server, Oracle and PostgreSQL.
  • Back up Direct to Object Storage: Veeam Agents can now write directly to object storage services like Amazon S3 and Azure Blob, which eliminates the need to stage backups or snapshots on less cost-effective (but better performing) storage.
  • No direct network connectivity: Discovery and connection of cloud instances to the Veeam backup server is done by means of public cloud queue services, Veeam Cloud Message Service and Veeam Cloud Transport work over secure channels, so no direct network connectivity or VPNs are required.

How it functions

Veeam Backup & amp, Replication communicates with the cloud-hosted VM and its associated VeEam Agent using the Veam Cloud Message and Transport Services, respectively.

  1. Using the Amazon Simple Queue Service ( Amazon SQS ) or Azure Quay Storage, the Veeam Cloud Message Service on a backup server sends requests to the Peaam cloud message service on protected instances.
  2. On a protected example, Veeam Cloud Message Service checks the backlog, reads the note, and performs either:
    1. executes the control, such as a PowerShell book.
    2. sends the command to a different Veeam component( such as the Veyam Transport Service or Agent )( e.g. ).
  3. The command result is returned to Veeam Backup & amp, Replication via the queue service, by the VMware Cloud Message Service.

Note: For this diagram, Veeam Backup & Replication is installed on-premises, but it can also run on any cloud infrastructure.


Organizations looking to secure their fog hosted VMs, especially those that were moved from on-premises as part of a lift and shift train that has not yet been refactored, gain several advantages from cloud-integrated Veeam Agents. These new brokers are optimized for the sky and our cloud-native offerings, which is fair Veeam manner. Better yet, you can protect your AWS and Azure IaaS with just one Veeam Universal License( VUL ) and have your cake and eat it too.
