Veeam: Backup and restore workloads to Microsoft Azure – Connectivity between our Datacenter and Microsoft Azure

Greetings friends, if we remember the introduction to this series on how to create a Disaster Recovery plan with Veeam in Microsoft Azure, we had the following diagram:In the diagram we can see how between the two locations we are using Veeam PN for connectivity, in this article today we will see the step-by-step steps to deploy and configure VeeamPN in both locations.

Veeam: Backup and restore workloads to Microsoft Azure – Introduction

Greetings friends, every day it is more common to move workloads to Microsoft Azure, or at least to have planned a certain level of Disaster Recovery to Microsoft Azure in case of a complete shutdown of our main data center, to be able to restore those most urgent applications for users or customers, reducing service downtime.Veeam has a number of specific products for moving workloads to Microsoft Azure, easily and fully integrated into the Veeam Backup & Replication console itself.The main functionality, available since March 2016, is called Direct Restore to Microsoft Azure, and although it used to come as a separate application it is now available on the Veeam Backup & Replication console itself to help with its integration.
