Data Transfer

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 (except transaction logs)
  • 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 Veeam Backup for Red Hat Virtualization
  • Backups created with VeeamZIP jobs
  • Backups exported by K10 policies  
  • Exported backup files
  • Orphaned backups

Imported backups can be copied or moved to capacity tier only manually.
