Greetings friends, Veeam has launched a few weeks ago the new Veeam Agent for Linux 2.0, which includes among many new features the possibility of performing a Backup to Cloud Connect, which was the missing piece of equipment to offer full service to Cloud environments where we have Linux, such as AWS, Azure, Digitalocean, etc...
Greetings friends, I have already told you on my Spanish Blog many times the advantages of using the new, and free, Veeam Agent para Linux, I leave you some of the best entries about it:

Greetings friends, the first strong post of September, today I bring you a very entertaining post about Veeam Backup and Replication on a Repository based on AWS Storage Gateway, and as it has stayed a little long I want to leave here the menu to move you faster:

AWS Storage Gateway - quick overviewAWS Storage Gateway allows us to consume certain Amazon Web Services resources locally through a virtual appliance that we deploy in our Infrastructure, so our VMs view the resources as if they were local, while the information is replicated in an encrypted and compressed way to the Amazon Cloud. AWS Storage Gateway allows us to create different resources:
- File Share: Which is nothing more or less than an NFS where we can connect computers that will see a traditional network drive and store files there.
- Volumes: Where we can consume by iSCSI, volumes that we can connect to Windows, Linux, etc., and that will be replicated later.
- Tapes: Virtual tape drives with which we can launch backups with Veeam for example, as if a real tape was involved, and thus get a more durable storage such as tapes, but in Cloud.
- Amazon S3, recommended for files or volumes that we use frequently.
- Amazon Glacier, if what we are saving is not accessed frequently.
- Amazon EBS Snapshots.
Hello everyone, in February of this year I wrote a script to monitor a Veeam Environment using the VeeamPSSnapIn, you can check it out on the Github page here. This post was a tremendous success, at even I had the chance to explain a bit more to the VeeamON participants, celebrated in New Orleans. But it has a minor shortcoming, it might run very slow and use some resources if the Veeam Environment is big. This new tutorial is based on the Veeam Enterprise Manager, and more particular we will use the RESTfulAPI, so it's important for now on that you have it installed and licensed.
