HandsOn: Veeam - Backup-as-a-Service in vRealize Automation

This is a use case description for some customer presentations about Backup as a Service using Veeam B&R v8. This article was originally posted January 2015 on my311.de.

The main idea behind that is to enable VMware Administrators or Users directly to choose a Backup SLA for their VM without the need to communicate with the Backup team - sorry Backup teams :-) The Backup Team acts as a Service Provider and offers different SLA’s which could be used by VMware Admins or Users.

I know about the Veeam REST API which is availbable for Version 8 with Veeam Enterprise Manager. I also know about the Powershell implementations but hey - i love VMware so i build solutions in Orchestrator :-) and decided to test drive some use case workflows in vRealize Orchestrator and also bind them to vRealize Automation.
