Veeam Cloud Tier, included in NEW Veeam Availability Suite 9.5 Update 4, is the built-in automatic tiering feature of Scale-out Backup Repository™ that offloads older backup files to more affordable storage, such as cloud or on-premises object storage. You can:
Leverage the lower cost, simplicity and elasticity of object storage including Amazon S3, Azure Blob Storage, IBM Cloud Object Storage, S3-compatible service providers or on-premises storage offerings.
Store data in the cloud without any double charges unlike with other backup providers who impose a “cloud tax” on top of the cloud provider’s storage cost.
Avoid vendor lock-in associated with secondary storage appliances.
Solution Components Include:
Source ESX(i) host
Veeam Backup Server
Veeam Backup Proxy
On-premise Storage to be used for staging. (SEE Scale-Out Backup Repository)
Veeam backup repository: a Linux-based EC2 VM in Amazon AWS.
