Scale out repo (S3) require on-site full backup?

Post by 5mall5nail5 » Jun 18, 2019 10:01 pm

Hi all -

I have a situation where I really want to send like 20 - 30TB of VMs to S3 via Veeam backup. However, other systems I have used require the full backup (initial) be on-prem and only incrementals go up to S3. Problem is this client wants the full backup, in fact, a one-time backup, sent to S3 storage for long term retention.

Is this possible? If I set the scale out repo to S3 for capacity and set it to 1 day will it move ALL backup instances up there or just incrementals that meet the age requirement?

Thanks!

Hello, it will move the entire backup chains (fulls and increments if present) where last restore point in the incremental chain is older than 1 day. However, the latest (currently active) incremental backup chain cannot be moved. Thanks!
