Restore Scenarios

This section explains possible restore scenarios from object storage.

Unavailability of Backup Files

If one of the offloaded backup files becomes unavailable on any of the extents in a scale-out backup repository, you can restore it by doing the following:

  1. Rescan a scale-out backup repository.

For more information on how to rescan a scale-out backup repository, see Rescanning Scale-Out Repositories.

  1. Copy data from object storage to the extent.

For more information on how copy data, see Copying to Performance Tier.

Restore Scenarios Note:

Extents must not be in Maintenance mode.

Unavailability of Extents

To restore data if any of the extents in a scale-out backup repository is unavailable, you can use any method described in Data Recovery.

The following figure shows an example of restoring data from object storage if any of the extents in a scale-out backup repository is unavailable or in maintenance mode.

As per figure below, you are restoring a virtual machine consisting of three data blocks, of which two blocks reside on the Extent 1 and another required block is stored on the Extent 2 which is unavailable. In such a scenario, Veeam Backup & Replication gets two blocks from the Extent 1 and another required block from object storage.

Unavailability of Extents

Unavailability of Scale-Out Backup Repository

To restore data if the entire scale-out backup repository is unavailable, you can use any method described in Data Recovery.

If the entire scale-out backup repository becomes unavailable, Veeam Backup & Replication restores data from object storage only.

As per figure below, both extents that store required backup files to restore a virtual machine are not available. In such a scenario, Veeam Backup & Replication restores data from object storage only.

Restore Scenarios
