Creating a tenant requires Service Provider license
, however I'm not sure what you're trying to achieve, so I'm going to ask you a few more questions:
1. How do you ship your backup offsite? Do you use backup copy job or you just send them via other means?
2. What do you expect from the test restore procedure? Do you want to just spin up VMs to see that they can actually start, or you'd like to perform some application level verification?
