Veeam Managed Backup: our Backup-as-a-Service solution for your VMs
Protecting and backing up your VMs is an essential part of ensuring long-term stability for your infrastructure. That’s why we offer a managed backup solution based on Veeam Backup & Replication technology. You can use it to easily restore your data, by enabling automatic backups for your VMs.
VM backups are fully automated and monitored by OVHcloud. You can restore these machines at any time.
Your data backups are stored in dedicated, complimentary infrastructures. You can access your backups easily via an administration link.
You are sent a custom report every day. This report will include a list of all your backups, and their respective statuses.

A detailed look at how the backup system works
Automatic, transparent and with no impact on available space
Your managed backups are created from the selected VMs, using the OVHcloud Veeam Server. Your management vLAN for your infrastructure then transfers your data to your repository configured in RAID. This operation is fully managed by our teams. With this additional storage, you will have more usable space on the infrastructure.
Virtual machine requirements
To enable Veeam Managed Backup on your Hosted Private Cloud, you need to create a virtual machine based on Windows. If you have a Windows Datacenter licence that you ordered from OVHcloud, the licence cost will be included. If you do not have a Windows Datacenter licence from OVHcloud, an additional charge will be applied for the licence. To create a Windows VM, you will need to enable the HA and DRS services in vSphere. This virtual machine will follow the DRS affinity rules you have defined.
For stability reasons, we cannot make backups of virtual machines (VMs) with a volume higher than 2TB. If you have more than 15 VMs backed up, or 10TB of volume, you may need to create an additional proxy backup, to ensure that your backups are correctly implemented.
