Can Veeam replicate to AWS?

Yes, Veeam can replicate to AWS. AWS is a popular cloud platform that provides a wide range of services, including compute, storage, and database services.

Veeam can replicate to AWS by using the AWS Storage Gateway. The Storage Gateway is a service that provides a gateway to AWS for storage-intensive applications. It can be used to store data on AWS, to replicate data to AWS, and to migrate data to AWS.

The Storage Gateway is a software appliance that can be installed on a server in your data center. It provides an iSCSI interface to your AWS storage. You can use the Storage Gateway to store data on AWS, to replicate data to AWS, and to migrate data to AWS.

The Storage Gateway is available in two editions:

– The virtual edition is a software appliance that can be installed on a server in your data center.

– The physical edition is a hardware appliance that is installed in your data center.

The Storage Gateway is available in two formats:

– The VTL format is a virtual tape library that can be used to store data on AWS.

– The EC2 format is an Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) instance that can be used to replicate data to AWS.

The Storage Gateway is available in two sizes:

– The small size is suitable for small deployments.

– The large size is suitable for large deployments.

The Storage Gateway is available in two regions:

– The US East (N. Virginia) region is the primary region for the Storage Gateway.

– The US West (Oregon) region is a secondary region for the Storage Gateway.

To use the Storage Gateway to replicate data to AWS, you must first create an AWS account and configure the Storage Gateway with your AWS account information. You can then create replication jobs to replicate data from your Veeam backup server to AWS.

The Storage Gateway is a popular choice for replicating data to AWS. It is easy to configure and provides a high level of performance.
