Immutable backups with Veeam Agent for Windows and Object Storage

This post was originally published on this site

Background

This one came about as I just built a new PC for the kids to do their homework on. I’m waiting for the inevitable “Daaaaad, the computer is broken” conversation! Rather than having to rebuild a PC, I can quickly restore it back to a point in time when it was working. I will leverage Veeam Agent for Windows and Object storage with object lock for this task.

What is required? Veeam Agent for Windows Veeam Agent for Windows Workstation license to allow for backup to object storage Object storage 5 minutes time to setup Setup

I will assume you have installed and licensed Veeam Agent for Windows at this point.
