Service Description Cloud powered by VMware backup service

VMware-based cloud backup is an additional service to VMware-based public cloud.

The service allows you to backup and restore virtual machines and entire vApps, it is not suitable for Named Disks backups.

Technical description

The backup repository is physically located in Availability Zone 2.

Backup files are replicated in three independent copies.

To improve availability, all elements of the Veeam Backup & Replication™ (VBR) infrastructure are either duplicated or deployed in fault-tolerant virtualization environments.

Channel speed to VBR servers is not limited. Network bandwidth up to 20 Gbps.


The backup service is billed on a pay-as-you-go model. Every hour, the cost of storing backups for each virtual machine and the cost of the repository space that backups take up are deducted from the balance. Traffic is not charged.

Money starts to be deducted from the balance after a successful backup is created. Resource prices can be viewed at

Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager portal

Backup management (creating a backup, changing the backup schedule or restoring the required VM) is performed through the Veeam® Backup Enterprise Manager self-service portal. Access to the portal is automatically connected when you create a virtual data center.
