With backup copy, you can create several instances of a backup and copy them to secondary (target) backup repositories for long-term storage. Target backup repositories can be located in the same site as the source backup repository or can be deployed off-site. Since the backup copy has the same format as the original backup, you can restore VM data directly from the backup copy in case a disaster strikes. For more information on the backup copy functionality, see the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide, section Backup Copy.
The Immediate copy mode is not supported for backups created with Veeam Backup for RHV.
To copy backups to a secondary backup repository, do the following:
- In the Veeam Backup & Replication console, open the Home view.
- In the inventory pane, right-click Jobs and select Backup Copy > Red Hat Virtualization Plug-in for Veeam Backup & Replication backup.
- Create a backup copy job as described in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide, section Creating Backup Copy Jobs.
