Transferring Backups to Performance Tier

Prior to Veeam Backup & Replication version 12, it was possible to keep data only on object storage repositories added as capacity extents of scale-out backup repository. Starting from Veeam Backup & Replication version 12, it is possible to add an object storage repository as a performance extent and back up data directly to this extent.

In case you have an object storage repository that is added as a capacity extent and want to use it as a performance extent, you can transfer existing backup from the capacity extent to the performance extent.

To do this, you must perform the followings steps:

  1. Add a new object storage repository to the backup infrastructure.
  2. Download a necessary backup chain to the existing backup repository added as a performance extent. For more information, see Downloading Data from Capacity Tier.
  3. Move backups from the backup repository to a new object storage repository. For more information, see Moving Backups.
  4. Add the object storage as a performance extent to a new scale-out backup repository.
