Veeam Plugin for VMware vCloud Director (deprecated)


Veeam Backup & Replication 11 introduced an official VCD plugin which replaces this plugin. Only use this plugin if you're running a version prior to v11. If you are looking to upgrade to the new plugin, uninstall this plugin and then follow Veeam instructions for installing the new plugin.

The Veeam Plugin for vCloud Director (VCD) allows the Veeam VCD Self-Service Backup Portal to be accessible natively within the VCD Web UI. It leverages the VCD Extension SDK to make this possible.

This documentation will provide steps for Installing, Configuring, and Using the Veeam Plugin for VCD.
