Retrieving Backed-Up Data
Data retrieval is the process of receiving temporary access to backup copies, so that backed-up data can be explored. You can retrieve backed-up data from a backup repository extended with Azure Blob Storage Archive access tier, Amazon S3 Glacier Flexible Retrieval or Amazon S3 Glacier Deep Archive storage classes.
As well as data backup and backup copy, data retrieval is a job-driven process. When you want to access your data in backup copies stored in Azure Blob Storage Archive, Amazon S3 Glacier Flexible Retrieval and Amazon S3 Glacier Deep Archive, you create a retrieval job. For more information, see Creating Retrieval Job.
Consider the following:
When the retrieval job is complete, the retrieved data will be available for a specified period of time, during which you can explore and restore your data using Veeam Explorers. You can extend the availability period for data that Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 has retrieved. For more information, see Editing Retrieval Job Settings and Extending Availability of Retrieved Data.
Data retrieval cost varies depending on the desired speed of the process. You can select an option that you prefer at the Select Retrieval Mode step of the Retrieve Backup Copy wizard. Keep in mind that options differ for Azure Blob Storage Archive, Amazon S3 Glacier Flexible Retrieval and Amazon S3 Glacier Deep Archive storage classes.
