Hello Experts,

Can someone please provide high level steps to setup all infrastructure and deploy azure to be integrated with VEAM software?

Hi Swapnil ,

Thanks for the links above.

Does Azure allow to take offline backups? The idea is to setup VEAM version 11, take full backups of only VMs, then upload the backups in Azure. For compliance reasons, customer wants to follow Air gap approach and delete any network connection between on prem and the cloud, and leave that backups isolated

Is that even possible?
My understanding is that Azure backups are considered online backups, therefore Air gap is not possible in Azure.

Is my assumption correct? if not, please elaborate how to use VEAMs to backup on prem vms, transfer data to Azure, then go to offline mode for those backups. Client is trying to prevent Ransomware for backups hosted in the cloud.
