Data Transfer

In this article

    Veeam Backup & Replication offers the following opportunities of data transfer to and from the capacity extent:

    • Copy policy: the backups are copied to the capacity extent automatically.
    • Move policy: the inactive backup chains can be transferred to the capacity extent.
    • Previously offloaded data can also be downloaded from the capacity tier back to the performance extents.

    To manage data transfer to and from the capacity extent, Veeam Backup & Replication uses system sessions.

    The following types of backup files can be moved or copied to capacity tier:

    • Regular backups
    • Veeam backups for Amazon, Google and Microsoft Azure (via backup copy jobs)
    • Backups created with Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows, Veeam Agent for Linux,  Veeam Agent for Unix or Veeam Agent for Mac
    • Backups created with Veeam Plug-ins for Enterprise Applications (Oracle RMAN, SAP HANA, SAP on Oracle)
    • Backups created with Veeam Backup for Nutanix AHV
    • Backups created with VeeamZIP jobs
    • Exported backup files
    • Orphaned backups

    Imported backups cannot be copied or moved to capacity tier.
