How Backup Works

In this article

    When you launch a backup job in the RHV backup proxy web console, the following happens:

    1. The web console sends the backup job configuration data to the RHV backup proxy.
    2. The RHV backup proxy starts the backup job and forwards the backup session data to the backup server.
    3. The RHV backup proxy connects to the RHV host over REST API and creates a checkpoint of all VMs added to the job.
    4. The RHV backup proxy creates a volume group on the RHV cluster, mounts VM disks through iSCSI and retrieves the VM data on the block level.
    5. The Veeam Data Mover service compresses and deduplicates the VM data and forwards it to the target backup repository in the native Veeam format.
