Media Pools

Media pools are logical containers created in Veeam Backup & Replication to organize and administer tapes.

Veeam Backup & Replication has the following types of media pools:

  • Service Media Pools are created automatically and are used for automatic tape administration.
  • Media Pools are created by user and contain tapes for backups.
  • GFS Media Pools are created by user and contain tapes for GFS backups.

All Veeam media pools are global. They span tapes that belong to multiple libraries. In a global media pool, you can move tapes between the libraries without need to catalog them.

Media Pools Note:

Mind the hardware encryption. If the tapes are encrypted by native hardware means of a tape library, you cannot read them at tape device with another encryption standard or with hardware encryption turned off.

Placing Tapes to Media Pools

Veeam Backup & Replication works only with tapes that are placed to a media pool. To introduce tapes to Veeam Backup & Replication, you need to run importing procedure against all new tapes you load to your tape devices. Importing registers tapes in the Veeam Backup database after which Veeam Backup & Replication places tapes to one of the media pools. For more information, see Loading Tapes.
