Veeam is a popular enterprise backup solution for on-premise virtualized infrastructure, specifically for vSphere and Hyper-V environments. We often get users asking if they can point their Veeam backups directly to Cloud-A Bulk Storage, and while it is possible, it requires some additional software.
CloudBerry Backup can be used for backing up your Veeam backup data into Cloud-A Bulk Storage, which gives you an extra level of confidence that your important files are safe, offsite on 3X redundant storage. Here is how you can use CloudBerry Backup for backing up Veeam files to Cloud-A.
Create Cloud-A Bulk Storage Container
CloudBerry Backup for OpenStack is built to utilize OpenStack Swift technology, which means that users can use it with Cloud-A’s Bulk Storage ($0.075 per GB per month). You will need to create at least one Bulk Storage container by navigating to the storage tab in the Cloud-A dashboard and selecting “New Container.” Appropriately name your container and you are ready to download CloudBerry Backup.
Tip: To keep your cloud-synced files organized, we recommend creating multiple Bulk Storage containers and treat them as if they were a folder directory on your local system.
Configuring CloudBerry Backup
After you have installed CloudBerry Backup, you need to take the following actions:
1. Launch CloudBerry Backup.
2. Specify cloud storage account where you want to backup your Veeam data. Using “File”main menu select a storage type and specify a storage account credentials.
3. Setup file-level backup plan – use the “Backup Files” button to create a plan:
4. Select a storage account you have specified before:
5. Click “Next”.
6. Proceed with the next two steps of Create Backup Plan Wizard:

7. At the “Backup Source” step select C:\Backup folder as a source for the backup.
Note: Veeam service uses C:\Backup as a default destination folder for storing its backups. Select the other folder as a source if you have configured Veeam to store files on another folder.
8.Click “Next” and follow the last steps of the wizard.
That is all! You have configured Veeam data backup to cloud storage with CloudBerry Backup.
