How do I use a Backup Copy Job in Veeam v10 with Wasabi?

Wasabi is a member of Veeam's cloud partner ecosystem. We have worked with Veeam closely to offer both a seamless implementation, and a smooth transition to cloud storage. More info on how Veeam works with Wasabi can be found in our Veeam with Wasabi Solution Overview.

NoteThe data restoration process is handled by your specific backup software application. As there are many potential variables that will affect your unique environment, it is strongly recommended that you seek the guidance of your backup software's technical support team in the event that you encounter difficulty, or have application-specific inquiries.

Native S3 interface: The Veeam v10 release has continued its native support of the S3 interface for Veeam's Backup & Replication product. This native S3 interface allows Veeam customers to use S3-compatible storage such as Wasabi, as a Capacity Tier.  Veeam customers should contact their Veeam account team for specific details.

Note:

  • The steps outlined below require the Veeam v10 release. For other release versions, please check our Main Veeam KB Article.
  • The Veeam application requires base licensing of "Enterprise" or "Enterprise Plus" in order to leverage the Scale-Out Backup Repository feature. The SOBR is required for Wasabi Integration. Contact your Veeam sales representative to learn more about Veeam licensing. You can read more about Veeam Licensing on the Veeam Product Features Comparison page.

Pre-requisites:

  • Historically completed Backup Jobs.
  • A new Scale-out Backup Repository to use for a Backup Copy Job.

1. Navigate to "Home, click on "Backup Copy", then click "Virtual Machine".

2. Input a name (in this case we went with "Copy job"), then click "Next".

Note: In this example, we are selecting "Immediate copy", in order to demonstrate showing data in Wasabi as soon as possible.

  • Selecting "Immediate copy"
    • Mirrors all restore points that are in the selected Backup Job.
  • Selecting "Periodic copy"
    • The Backup Copy Job only mirrors the latest available restore point. Given the scenario of running your Backup Job daily, and running your Backup Copy Job weekly, using "Periodic copy" will only copy over the latest restore point into Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage. This can save both bandwidth, and storage capacity, for slower connections.

3. Click "Add", choose backups from a Backup Job that has already completed, click "OK", then click "Next".

4. From the drop down menu, choose the scale out repository, then click "Next".

Caution: This Backup Repository must be a different repository than the Scale-out Backup Repository which is configured for your Backup Job.
