What is Veeam Cloud Connect?
If you are an existing Veeam Backup software customer, Veeam Cloud Connect makes it easy for you to send your off-site copies to the cloud. Your internal IT resources can simply target offsite backups to the Brennan IT private cloud, and benefit from reliable, Australia-based storage and restoration.
Veeam Cloud Connect is priced per virtual machine protected and total data stored. This means you have complete control over how much data is stored in the Brennan IT Private Cloud, how often incremental backup volumes are written, and for how long they are stored. We simply charge you a low monthly fee corresponding to the total data stored on our cloud infrastructure after it has been compressed and encrypted.
Connectivity to the Brennan IT Private Cloud can be via a secure encrypted tunnel over the internet, or via a private managed data link which we can also supply at competitive prices.
