backup to cloud scenario help?

Post by ragman » May 03, 2013 1:24 am

hi all

thanks in advance for your help ...

just testing the new cloud add on to veeam - and have a question

ive moved a 10gb backup to the cloud with no problems - then run the veeam job again - little changes have taken place on the vm so the backup is very quick and the same size. i then want to move the backup to the cloud but it copies the entire 10gb again - i thought it would do some sort of cbt where it only moves the changes to the cloud instead of the entire 10gb -

any idea if veeam cloud does this ?

Michael, currently Veeam B&R Cloud Edition copies entire backup files, there's no changed blocks tracking, just a simple files copy based on the specified criteria. Thanks.

I assume you are utilizing Reverse Incremental backup, so the last backup is always full.
If you want to move to cloud only changes since last backup, you can try to use Incremental backup job. So after uploading full backup you can transfer only small portion of data stored in incremental file.
