Extend your data protection to the cloud

Your data matters and ensuring that its copied offsite reliably is a critical part to keeping it safe. With Veeam Cloud Connect, you can now quickly and easily copy your backups to the cloud. Putting all of the control in your hands you can manage your offsite backups in the same way as you do your normal Veeam backups. Hosted Network's Backup as a Service also allows you to restore as granularly as required, from an individual file to an entire VM. Additionally in the event of a disaster you can also restore into our public VMware cloud.

customer on premises infrastructure
We were looking at a solution to provide off-site backup and disaster recovery to our existing customer base. Many of our customers were using Veeam B&R and when we reached out to Veeam for a recommended Cloud Connect provider they pointed us to Hosted Network. Their quick service and fantastic approach to customer relationships has allowed us to implement Cloud Connect quickly and effortlessly.


A few of the included features with our Backup as a Service offering

Keeping things simple

Data transfer is free, you’ll only pay a set price per VM and for the storage you use. In the event of a disaster, we can even restore your files to our infrastructure to get you up and running.

Complete visibility and control

Access and recover data in hosted backup repositories directly from the backup console; track cloud repository consumption and monitor the status of your offsite backup copy and backup jobs.

Granular restoration

Recover VM’s, VMDKs or individual files. In the event of a complete disaster you can even restore to our public cloud.

End-to-end encryption

Rest easy by encrypting all data at source (before it leaves your network perimeter), in flight and at rest, without negatively impacting the data reduction ratios of built-in compression and WAN acceleration.

WAN acceleration

Take advantage of WAN acceleration to reduce bandwidth by up to 20x and increase transfer times by up to 50x.

Frequently Asked Questions

Just a few of the more commonly asked questions

Does Hosted Network have access to the data?

You have the ability to encrypt your backups at the source, before the data leaves your network. Hosted Network does not have access to the data.

Does Cloud Connect support multiple retention policies?

Yes, Veeam Cloud Connect supports customer defined retention policies. The only limit would be your storage allowance.

If there is an existing Veeam job, can Cloud Connect be added as a secondary location?

Think of Cloud Connect as just another backup repository on your network, allowing you to do anything you can normally do with a local backup.

Where is my backup data stored? Will my data ever leave the country?

Hosted Network utilises world class data centres located in Australia. We will never send your data anywhere else.

Can multiple sites backup to the same Veeam Cloud Connect account?

Yes they can; however you will need to account for space and concurrent jobs as this may affect your overall performance to Cloud Connect.

I have terabytes of data, how can I use Cloud Connect to back this up?

Hosted Network recommends pre-seeding data in this scenario. To do this, simply backup to a local storage target, send that target to us when you are ready and we will load that data into storage f or you. Map your backups in Veeam and you will start to backup the difference!

What version of Veeam do I need to take advantage of Veeam Cloud Connect?

V8 and above will work with Veeam Cloud Connect. To take full advantage of Veeam Cloud Connect Replication (DRaaS) you will need to be running V9 or above.

How do I restore my data?

The restore process is managed through your local Veeam Management console, the same way your other backups are.
