Now with Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 Update 3 (new release), one of the features is built in agent management. Using the same console which we have used for virtualization data protection and recovery for Vmware & Hyper-V, we can use it for managing physical and cloud workload.
With Veeam Administrator Console, you can
Deploy Veeam Agent centrally for Windows or Linux workload using static or dynamic configuration
Static - using computer name or IP address
Dynamic - using MS Active Directory Object, CSV file
Example:- Using Active Directory based on Group, OU, Domain, Computers...
Configure Veeam Agent Policy
Install Veeam CBT driver for Windows Server rather than using Microsoft VSS.
Protect Microsoft Failover Cluster workload, SQL based Cluster, SQL Always ON and Exchange DAG
2 node SQL Always on
Backup result with compression & deduplication
So hurry, grab your free Update 3 (for existing customer with active maintenance)

The backup will run according to schedule. To verify, login to OneDrive and you will notice that your backup data is stored in "OneDrive"
