Creating Azure ARM template with Veeam Agent unattended setup
One of the things that you need to remember to have when moving to the public cloud is to do backup of your stateful virtual machines since this is not something that is included as part of the basic service that cloud platforms provide (Azure, Google and Amazon) for instance.
NB: Azure has an Backup service part of Recovery vault which enables backup of VM in Azure, but does not deliver the in-depth recovery options that Veeam delivers.
One of the cool things that Veeam provides is the Veeam Agent for Windows which now supports backup directly to Cloud Connect at a Service Provider for instance, and has quite good ways of doing silent installs with automatic configuration of the agent itself. Which makes it easy for us to do automatic deployment of VMs with backup configured.
Veeam Agent for Windows comes in different editions –> https://www.veeam.com/veeam_agent_windows_2_0_editions_comparison_ds.pdf
where Cloud Connect is supported on Workstation and Server editions.
