External Repository

You can use Veeam Backup & Replication to copy EC2 instance backups created with Veeam Backup for AWS to on-premises repositories and perform data migration between cloud, on-premises and virtual infrastructures.

To start working with EC2 instance backups, you must add an Amazon S3 bucket where EC2 instance backups reside to the Veeam Backup & Replication infrastructure as an external repository. After that, you can perform the following operations:


External Repository Note:

Mind the following:

  • During the process of copying EC2 instance backups, or restore to Amazon EC2 or Microsoft Azure, EC2 instance data may migrate from one geographic location to another. In this case, Veeam Backup & Replication displays a warning and stores a record about data migration to job or task session details. For more information, see Locations.
  • You cannot use an external repository as a target for backup or backup copy jobs.
