Veeam Cloud, which is a Veeam Software partner, is recognized as the global leader in backup and disaster recovery. In this post, we will discuss Veeam Cloud Connect and its benefits, which will help enterprises to secure their confidential files and data. But before proceeding further, let me infuse some basic knowledge of Veeam Cloud Connect to our non-technical visitors.
What is Veeam Cloud Connect?
Veeam Cloud Connect helps enterprises to act as a disaster recovery service provider to put on offsite backup and replication services to the internal customers. It enhances data security by covering all the backup and management traffic into a single port.
Some big Cloud service providers such as XcellHost and Sherweb are associated with Veeam and offer their customers an infrastructure to store virtual machine backups with the help of Veeam software. VCC (Veeam Cloud Connect) is an additional layer of security to the company's disaster recovery strategy.
Not only that, working with Veeam Cloud Connect is also very simple. It creates the ability to deliver Veeam backups and copies from more than one locations to a single data center or directly send these backups to public Cloud. It also provides control and flexibility to pick the enterprise backup and recovery plan, which best suits your requirements.
Why do You need To Host Your Entire Data on Veeam Cloud Connect?
I am pretty sure that this question certainly hits your mind while you go through this blog. The primary reason of this is, the "three-two-one-rule", which means that you will get at least three replicas of your data stored in two different locations with one of these backups located on the website.
