Why Veeam Cloud Connect Backup

Veeam Cloud Connect Backup makes it easy to get your backups off-site to a hosted backup repository (called a cloud repository) without the cost and complexity of managing your own second site.

Architectural Overview

Veeam Cloud Connect Backup is:

Seamless — Use your Covenco cloud repository like a local backup repository. Simply open the Veeam backup console and make your Covenco cloud repository a target for any backup or backup copy job. If you already have Veeam Cloud Connect, a paid edition of Veeam Availability Suite™, Veeam Backup & Replication™ or Veeam Backup Essentials™, v8 and later no additional downloads or additional Veeam licensing is required!

Efficient — Get your backups off-site quickly and easily without adding bandwidth by leveraging forever-incremental backups, in-cloud synthetic fulls, built-in WAN acceleration (in Enterprise Plus edition) and more to minimize data transfer and maximizing restore points.

Secure — Rest easy your backup is encrypted at source, in flight and at rest, with no negative impact to data transfer rate (thanks to content-aware compression and WAN acceleration). Veeam Cloud Connect’s multi-tenant capabilities also ensure your data is as safe and confidential in our Cloud as it would be in your own off-site repository.
