Anyone used HPE RMC to backup VMs directly to the cloud?

The information online seems scant, but I gather that the RMC in Azure for instance is there only to serve as a place to copy data that is backed up to a local StorOnce Appliance on prem, rather than stream backup data directly from on-prem to the cloud?

It seems doing exactly that is what Azure MABS does, and sucks your VM data directly off vCenter and into your azure backup vault.

I had wondered if it was possible to setup RMC and use its built in vCenter plug in niceties to back up vms to the cloud from a mouse click inside vCenter. If not, then I guess we go down the MABS route, which as far as Im aware has no vCenter plug in yet.

Directly to the cloud would be facilitated with the HPE Cloud volumes. RMC can snap/sync a local Nimble/3PAR/Primera volume to a Nimble array in the cloud, or visa versa. The Cloud Volume can be mounted to cloud compute via iSCSI.

Thanks Richard. Im assuming then that the HPE cloud volumes can be run WITHOUT an on-prem Storeonce device, and you can directly pull the trigger on a backup via the RMC plug-in for vcenter?

That would be cool.

Edit:- Hmmm, it only mentions Nimble storage in this link:- https://docs.cloudvolumes.hpe.com/help/
