How do I use Veeam Service Provider Console v6.0 with Wasabi?

Veeam Cloud Connect Service Providers (VCSPs) can use Veeam Backup & Replication to offer cloud repository as a service and disaster recovery as a service to their customers (tenants). Veeam Backup & Replication lets VCSPs set up the cloud infrastructure so that tenants can send their data to the cloud and store it there in an easy and secure way.  This article describes how to configure Veeam Cloud Connect with Wasabi. 

Pre-requisites for VCC to integrate with Wasabi:

Service Provider

    • Veeam Service Provider Console v6.0 
    • Veeam Service Provider license - Ensure the license has "Cloud Connect Provider set to Yes"
    • Wasabi account

Customer

    • Veeam Backup & Replication release v11 or v10

Note: Wasabi is NOT a Veeam Cloud Connect provider. A Veeam Cloud Connect provider can use Wasabi to offload end-customer backups to Wasabi. You can find a Veeam Cloud Connect provider on Veeam's partner page.
