Veeam just announced a new product, currently in Beta. Veeam FastSCP for Azure IAAS.
Basically this is FastSCP (file transfer) for Azure VM’s.
Whats so great about this? Well, untill now to copy files from your local computer to an Azure VM required either:
1. A site to site VPN connection to the azure virtual network.
2. Copy over RDP (limited to 2GB).
This handy little tool will connect to the PowerShell endpoint port of your public IP address. Inside the VM it’s based on winrm. It even has Automatic scheduling of file copy jobs for nightly or weekly copies to/from Azure VMs. And you don’t need to keep the UI open to complete a job.
And of course all data is securely copied over SSL.
Anyone interested in registering for a beat can do that over here
