Importing Object Storage Backups

Veeam Backup & Replication allows you to import backups located in object storage repositories into the Veeam Backup & Replication console so that you can perform disaster recovery operations in case the configuration of the scale-out backup repository was permanently lost and is unavailable.

Consider the following:

  • The Import Backups option is available only if the object storage is not a part of the scale-out backup repository.
  • Before you start importing backups, make sure to add the object storage repository that stores data you want to import.
  • If you have imported backups from the object storage repository, you will not be able to select this repository as a capacity extent at the Add Capacity Tier and at the Add Archive Tier steps.
  • The Import Backups option is applicable only to the Capacity Tier and Archive Tier backups. It does not support the NAS backups.

To import backups, do the following:

  1. Launch Import Wizard
  2. Specify Password
  3. Wait for Import
  4. Finish Working with Wizard
