Capacity Tier augments your scale-out backup repository abilities and allows you to store your backup data in cloud-based object storage such as:
- Amazon S3
- Microsoft Azure Blob Storage
- IBM Cloud Object Storage
- S3 Compatible
Such an approach helps you comply with possible data storage regulations your organization might be adhering to. For example, you might be running out of space, as your extents are only capable of keeping no more than 10 restore points at a time, or your organization policies allow you to store only certain amount of data on your extents, whereas the rest of the data should be stored elsewhere because of its outdated state.
To safely reclaim valuable storage space on your on-premises devices and make it easier to place the backup data to cloud repositories, Veeam Backup & Replication implements proprietary mechanisms that help you efficiently offload your data from the extents to cloud-based object storage every 4 hours.
Before start using Capacity Tier as an object storage repository, make sure to check your cloud storage provider pricing plans to avoid additional costs that might be incurred when offloading and downloading your backup data.
