Backup Exec 2014 backup up to the cloud?

Created: 29 Jul 2014 • Updated: 11 Aug 2014 | 7 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

I'm new to backing up to the cloud. I know how to enable it in BE2014 but how do you actually back up to the cloud. One of our clients would like to backup to the Cloud so I'd like to get familiar with the process. Does it get backed up to the drive and then it gets pushed to let says Amazon or Google cloud or does it backup directly to? Right now we are runing server 2012 and backup exec 2014.

...as per the section on cloud in the Admin Guide, backups are done locally and then moved to the cloud provider for offsite storage.

...on each post you want to mark as a solution, assuming more than 1, hit the Request split solution.

This will then be completed by an Admin.

Thanks!
