One of the things that we have in all our projects and backup environments are Backups Jobs.
After deploying all components and servers on our Veeam infrastructure, the first thing that we do is the creation of our backup jobs.
Thinking of that, I write this post telling you what is the main nomenclatures that I’ve been used on my Veeam Backup & Replication.
B2D - Backup to Disk
Backup jobs that we use to send data to any disk repository.
B2T - Backup to Tape
Backup jobs that we use to send data to tape libraries.
B2C - Backup to Cloud
Backup jobs that we use to send data to cloud. On V11 we need a SOBR to send data to public cloud like AWS, Azure and GCP. However, if we have a Veeam Cloud Connect repository, we can send data to this kind of 'cloud' and use B2C name on backup job.
BC - Backup Copy
Backup copy jobs we often use to make one or more copies of data between repositories or sites.
LTR - Longe Term Retention
Backup copy jobs we can have to attend a long-term retention on data archiving. We often have this kind of job to send data to storage systems though for lengthy periods like DataDomain.
This is the main nomenclatures that I use on my backup projects.
Do you have something different? Tell me this on comments below!
I’d love to know that.
