Moving to Capacity Tier

The Move to capacity tier option allows you to:

  • Manually offload selected backup files to object storage repositories.

Consider that backup files you want to offload must belong to an inactive backup chain. For more information, see Backup Chain Legitimacy.

Mind that such copied blocks will only be removed from the extents, not from object storage.

To move your backup data to capacity tier, do the following:

  1. Open the Home view.
  2. In the inventory pane, select Backups.
  3. In the working area, right-click a backup job and select Properties.
  4. In the Properties window, right-click a backup file that either:
  • Belongs to an inactive backup chain.

When moving such a backup, Veeam initiates a new session of the SOBR Offload job. For more information. see SOBR Offload Job.

  • Was replenished by copying offloaded data from object storage. For more information, see SOBR Download Job.

When moving such a backup, Veeam simple removes all the copied blocks of data from the selected backup file, leaving it only with metadata. Nothing is going to be offloaded in such a scenario.

  1. Select Move to capacity tier and click:
  • For .vib/.vbk backup files:
  • This backup and all dependent increments — to offload the selected backup along with its associated increments or to remove all the copied blocks of data from the selected backup and its associated increments.
  • For .vbk backup files:
  • This backup — to offload a full backup only or to remove all the copied blocks of data from such a full backup.
  • This backup and all dependent increments — to offload the selected backup along with its associated increments or to remove all the copied blocks of data from the selected backup and its associated increments.
