Transferring Backups to Performance Tier
Prior to Veeam Backup & Replication version 12, it was possible to keep data only on object storage repositories added as capacity extents of scale-out backup repository. Starting from Veeam Backup & Replication version 12, it is possible to add an object storage repository as a performance extent and back up data directly to this extent.
In case, you have an object storage repository that is added as a capacity extent and want to use it as a performance extent, you might want to transfer existing backup from the capacity extent to the performance extent.
To do this, you must perform the followings steps:
- Add a new object storage repository to the backup infrastructure.
- Download a necessary backup chain to the existing backup repository added as a performance extent. For more information, see Downloading Data from Capacity Tier.
- Move backups from the backup repository to a new object storage repository. For more information, see Moving Backups.
- Add the object storage as a performance extent to a new scale-out backup repository.
