The Virtual Server Agent must be deployed on an instance running in Oracle Cloud. The following operating systems are supported:
- Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1
- Windows Server 2012 R2
Only machines that have the VSA installed can act as VSA proxies to perform backups and restores.
At least one proxy is needed.
The proxy machine must have access to repositories and backup storage resources.
You can use MediaAgents on Oracle Cloud instances or on machines deployed on premises.
Configuring a Firewall to Install the Virtual Server Agent on a Cloud VM or Instance
To deploy the Virtual Server Agent (VSA) or MediaAgent on a cloud VM or instance when other components (such as the CommServe host) are on premises, configure a Commvault firewall connection between the on premises components and the cloud VM or instance.
The hardware requirements for Virtual Server Agent installed on either physical or virtual machines is explained in Hardware Specifications for Virtual Server Agent.
