Veeam Cloud Connect

Adding phoenixNAP as a Service Provider

Veeam Cloud Connect enables existing Veeam users to quickly and efficiently create offsite cloud backup copies to one of five phoenixNAP Veeam infrastructure locations:

  • Phoenix, AZ, USA
  • Ashburn, VA, USA
  • Atlanta, Georgia
  • Amsterdam, Netherlands
  • Singapore, Southeast Asia

Here you will learn how to configure your Veeam Backups within the Veeam Backup and Replication console to point to your new storage quota on the phoenixNAP cloud environment.

In order to start using the contracted storage for your Veeam backups, you will need to add phoenixNAP as your service provider.

To do so, launch the Veeam Backup and Replication console from your computer and follow these steps:

  1. Navigate to the Backup Infrastructure section.
  2. Select Service Providers.
  3. Click on one of the Add Service Provider buttons to start the wizard.

    • Atlanta – atlcloudconnect.phoenixnap.com
    • Amsterdam – nldcloudconnect.phoenixnap.com
    • Singapore – sincloudconnect.phoenixnap.com


    All Cloud Backup for Veeam repositories at the Phoenix location established prior to February 20, 2019 had been assigned to the phxcloudconnect.phoenixnap.com server address. If for some reason, you need to reconfigure your setup, please use the above-mentioned server address and NOT phxcloudconnect2.phoenixnap.com.
  5. Insert the desired Description for the service provider.
  6. Do not change the Port value; it must always be 6180.
