[MERGED] How do you send backup files to Amazon Glacier?

Veeam Logoby cparker4486 » Mon Nov 21, 2016 4:51 pm

Hi everyone,

I've been using FastGlacier to send monthly backup files to Amazon Glacier. I've been using it for a few years and it's worked fairly well but periodically I have to retry a job and this seems to be happening more often the past few months. My files are 400GB+ and my upload speed is 75Mbps.

I'd like to find a more reliable way. Preferably with PowerShell.

So, how do you do it?

Hi PTide,

I must say I disagree with you merging my topic into this. This gateway thing looks interesting but now my topic is buried in this thread and no one is going to see it. You could have just posted your comment and linked to the thread. Merging was not necessary.


Respectfully,
Chris.

Not sure whether I got your request. More reliable way to do what exactly? Send data to Amazon Glacier? How does PowerShell correlate with this goal? And what particular you have to retry usually? FastGlacier or VB&R one? Thanks.

[MERGED] Veeam + AWS - Tape Gateway

Veeam Logoby infused » Tue Jul 11, 2017 12:47 am

Hi Guys.

Is there an easy guide which shows how to:

* Add the tape gateway VM/Configure
* Make it show in Veeam
* Configure backup jobs for the tape gateway
* Tape retrieval from AWS

We have 30TB I am looking to shove off to AWS Tape Gateway/Glacier storage. This is long term retention. I see it's coming natively in v10? But I need to do this now.

Thanks

[MERGED] Using AWS Snowball and AWS Storage Gateway

Veeam Logoby rbance67 » Tue Dec 05, 2017 4:31 am

Hi,

Has anyone used the AWS Storage GW in VTL mode for Veeam Backup, and used Snowball to preseed the AWS S3 for the initial backup jobs??

Very interesting question, but to be honest I doubt that Gateway VTL supports integration with Snowball.

[MERGED] AWS Storage Gateway Tape Library - Bar Codes

Veeam Logoby vtjim345 » Wed Jan 24, 2018 5:08 pm

Has anyone gotten the bar codes to work with Veeam and AWS's Storage Gateway? I'm running 9.5 U3. I've seen references in the past to manually enter the name of the tape, but, it's very tedious. Thanks in advance.

For those that might run across this issue, this was an upgraded veeam b&r server (7->8->9.0->9.5). I worked with Veeam support. We changed the following things and it now works.

- AWS - Change MediaChanger type to "AWS-Gateway-VTL"
- Computer Management -> Device Manager - changed device/drivers for Tape Library to use "Sony TSL-A500C AutoLoader.
- Finally, in VBR, Tape Infrastructure, Tape Library -> Properties. Tick off "Use native SCSI commands instead of Windows driver.

We tried several things and i'm not sure if it was a combination or if the final step was what was needed.

After a re-inventory the barcode field is now populated when we view the properties of the tapes. The name is still off though for existing tapes. New tapes have the name assigned to the bar code. This works for me since i can now look at the properties to find out the tape for the legacy tapes.
