Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure uses a Microsoft Azure service account to get access to Microsoft Azure resources such as subscriptions, resource groups, storage accounts, and so on configured in your Azure environment.

  • You can add only one Microsoft Azure service account to the Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure backup infrastructure.
