Azure Blob directories as repositories for Veeam O365

Pepe Garcia 1 Reputation point

Hi all,

I have an azure VM using the Veeam server and proxy by default, It is32 GiB of RAM. When I started I had 2 jobs running. 1 per Main mailbox backed daily and other for the Archive mailbox backed on weekends. Both are storage in an Azure blob container. Now I would like to start backing Sharepoint sites. I do not know what would be the best solution to storage my data, I mean, is it better to storage Sharepoint sites in a diffrent blob? I have created a different directory in the same blob with the idea to have it separated from the mailboxes one, but don´t know if it is correct. Finally I had to create a different repositiry but extended with the same blob, but different directory within it...

I don't know if when paying for the use of the storage, would there be any additional cost to create a new blob within my storage account? If you pay for the storage used, if I do not create a new blob and use the existing one, creating a folder (directory), the cost would be the same as creating a different blob? The storage would be the same, wouldn't it?

If I have 1 storarge account with 1 blob and I have created a new folder to storage Sharepoint backups within it, is it correct or Should I create a different blob within the same storage account?

Sharepoint backups should be running daily? I know it will depends on the needs, but what would be the best to know how often and if create another blob for it would be convenient...

    Since you are working with different sets of data I recommend storing the new backups in a separate container or storage account. You are not charged for additional containers or storage accounts, see the pricing page for details. One thing to keep in mind is that many of the performance limits are based on storage accounts and containers. This is why I recommend storing in separate locations. You can find more details on Performance and scalability checklist for Blob storage.

    Hope this helps. Let me know if you have further questions or need more assistance.
