Synthetic Full backup for AWS VTL

Veeam Logoby Rishi » Thu Aug 09, 2018 8:55 am

Hello,

I am looking to implement VTL using AWS.

My queries:
1. Is synthetic full backup possible? coz for us it does't make sense to copy full backups regularly over wire.
2. Can i use snowball to do initial seeding?

Any best practices /pitfalls?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Rishi.

Virtual full on tape (or synthesized full) is created from an incremental on disk, so it does not matter which library, standalone drive or VTL is used as a target. For the deployment take a look at this White Paper Veeam Backup & Replication using AWS VTL Gateway Deployment Guide - it should have most of the questions answered. Cheers!

It doesn't seem to be possible, as VTL doesn't support that. Thanks.
