Veeam Backup & Replication offers the following scenarios for restore of tenant data from tape:
- Restore to the original location. In this scenario, Veeam Backup & Replication restores tenant backups to the original cloud repository. The existing backups are overwritten. After restore, Veeam Backup & Replication maps tenant jobs to the restored backup chains.
- Restore to a new location. In this scenario, Veeam Backup & Replication restores tenant backups to another cloud repository specified by the SP. This option may be useful if you do not want to overwrite all tenant backups in the original cloud repository. After restore, Veeam Backup & Replication maps tenant jobs to the restored backup chains in the new cloud repository.
- Export backup files to disk. In this scenario, Veeam Backup & Replication restores tenant backups to a specified folder located on a server in the SP Veeam backup infrastructure.
During the restore process, the tenant account will be in the disabled state.
The SP can restore data of one tenant or several tenants simultaneously. The SP can restore all tenant data backed-up by a tenant backup to tape job or choose what data to restore. To do this, the SP can select for restore the following objects:
- Cloud repository
- Tenant job that created backup in the cloud repository
To restore tenant data from tape, the SP can also pass the tape media that contains tenant data to the tenant. In this case, the tenant can add the tape media to their Veeam backup infrastructure and use the Veeam backup console to perform regular restore operations from tape.
