Cloud Connect is a new component of Veeam Backup & Replication specifically developed to create and serve remote backup repositories. As a service provider in Veeam Cloud Provider Program (VCP), Softline offers its customers Backup Storage as a Service enabing them to send backups offsite.
With Cloud Connect, service providers are able to build their own remote repositories with an architecture that was built from the ground up to be multi-tenant and scalable. Veeam Cloud Connect removes the two main hurdles that such a service required in the past: VPN tunnels and dedicated repositories. With Veeam Cloud Connect, the connection will happen directly over the Internet, using a single TCP port, protected by SSL encryption. This will be possible thanks to a new Veeam component, called the Cloud Gateway, responsible for the tranfer of all the backup traffic over the single port connection.
