We are having some backups copied to an AWS bucket using Veeam Backup and Replication 11. The backups have been copying up to the bucket okay but today I was going to practice restorations and am a little confused about whether I did a restore from the internet or from the performance tier. The log said the restore was from AWS Veeam Object1 which should be the Amazon server. It seemed kind of quick. I was expecting it to take hours for a small server. It was 34 minutes. Maybe de-duplication is really good.
This was in the log:
- Restoring Hard disk 1 (40 GB) : 30.3 GB restored at 18 MB/s [nbd]
- 3.9 GB downloaded from capacity tier, 9.9 GB copied from performance tier
So far I haven’t seen any documentation that specifically walks us through restoration from a bucket.
It’s possible I’m still thinking of our network speed with a 2015 frame of mind. I want to be sure I’m doing this right.
