Cloud Connect Portal for Service Providers

2.13: Veeam Cloud Connect Portal for Service Providers is an additional component of Veeam Enterprise Manager

If a service provider plans to offer replication/DRaaS to its customers, this component can be selected and installed during the installation of Veeam Enterprise Manager. In fact, the Cloud Portal cannot be installed as an isolated component, even if there is a dedicated MSI installer file in the installation media. Any attempt to install the Cloud Portal on a machine without Veeam Enterprise Manager leads to this error (the build number may vary depending on which version of Cloud Connect is executed):

Cloud Portal cannot be installed without the Enterprise Manager

2.14: Cloud Portal cannot be installed without Veeam Enterprise Manager

Because of this, it makes even more sense to deploy Veeam Enterprise Manager together with the Cloud Portal on a dedicated machine..

Once installed, Cloud Portal can be accessed over an HTTPS connection over port TCP/6443. Service providers can re-map this port either by reconfiguring the website in IIS or by using a firewall.

Once deployed, the Cloud Portal listens for incoming connections over a single TCP port:

This port is already listed among the open ports of Veeam Enterprise Manager. No further action is needed.
