[i] Chapter 9: Advanced Data Protection

[q] Which industry tape format does Veeam Backup & Replication use to write data to tape?
[a]The MTF (Microsoft Tape Format)

[q] What source(s) can you use for a File to Tape job?
[a] Veeam Backup & Replication supports file backup from any server which has been added as a managed server to the Veeam Backup console (that is, Windows or Linux server, including physical boxes). You can also archive files residing on NAS devices.

[q] What kind of files can you archive to Tape?
[a] Backup files created in backup repositories by a backup or a backup copy job, and regular files you might want to write to tape, such as Windows and Linux files.

[q] Which options for restoring data from tape does Veeam Backup & Replication offer?
[a] – Restoring backup files from tape to disk
– Restoring VMs from tape into the virtual infrastructure
– Restoring files and folders from tape to the original location or to another directory

[q] Which predefined Tape media pools are available in Veeam Backup & Replication?
[a] – Free – a media pool containing empty tapes. You can use this media pool to
replenish custom pools with new tapes when needed.
– Unrecognized – a media pool containing tapes that were loaded to a tape device. They need further identification by a user which can be done by running the inventory or catalog job.
– Imported – a media pool containing non-empty tapes. These are tapes identified by the tape catalog job.
– Retired – a media pool containing retired tapes that reached the maximal
number of re-writes. This media pool may also contain tapes with some mechanical breakdown. The Veeam GFS media pools are special media pools that store data to tape with the GFS, or the Grandfather-Father-Son backup storage scheme.

[q] What is a Media Set?
[a] Media sets are separate sets of tapes with data continuously written to them. Use media sets to split your tape archive into distinctly separated groups of tapes

[q] What is a Backup Set?
[a] Backup sets are sets of files written to tape within one tape job session

[q] What is a Media Pool?
[a] Media pools are logical units that distribute free tapes for writing data and store information about data that was archived to them. To start archiving data, you
must create and configure at least one media pool that will serve as a target for tape jobs

[q] What is a Backup Set?
[a] Backup sets are sets of files written to tape within one tape job session

[q] What are Media Vaults
[a] Media vaults are logical containers for visualizing data stored offline. Create and use media vaults for convenient managing of offline tapes.

[q] Can you explain what Data Retention means, when used on a tape
[a] Data retention is a user-defined period of time set to protect data from overwriting. When this period ends, the tape can be reused.

[q] Veeam Backup & Replication uses a small temporary file of the .vsb (Synthetic Backup) format to be able to create a full backup to tape. What information is held in this file?
[a] The .vsb file contains pointers to data blocks in restore points of the backup chain.

[q] A retention period is set for a media pool and is applied to all tapes that belong to this pool. However, some tapes may contain data for which you may want to set a longer protection. Which option can you use to enable a different retention period for particular tapes?
[a] You can use tape protection. Tape protection is an option that sets an endless retention period for particular tapes selected by the user. The protection option overrides the retention settings of the media pool.

[q] Can you use tape multistreaming on a GFS media pool?
[a] You cannot set multistreaming for a GFS media pool, only on Custom Pools.

[q] When does a GSF Tape Job start?
[a] The GFS job starts at 00:00 on the selected day according to the GSF schedule created by the user.

[q] Which levels/type of encryption Veeam Backup & Replication support?
[a] Hardware and software level encryption.

[q]Which restore options can you select when restoring a backup from tape?
[a] – Restore directly to infrastructure
– Restore through a staging repository

[q] What are the limitations for Automated Drive Cleaning?
[a] – You cannot enable the automated drive cleaning on standalone tape drives.
– You cannot start the drive cleaning manually with Veeam Backup & Replication; The drive cleaning is fully automated

[q] Which storage systems are supported by Veeam Backup & Replication for Backup from Storage SnapShots (BfSS)?
[a] – NetApp
– HPE 3PAR StoreServ 7000
– HPE StoreVirtual P4000 series and HPE StoreVirtual VSA (Virtual Storage Appliance)
– Dell EMC VNX, VNXe, VNX2 and Unity

[q] Which protocols, used by Netapp storage, are supported by Veeam?
[a] iSCSI, Fibre Channel, NFS

[q] Which protocols, used by HP 3PAR storage, are supported by Veeam?
[a] iSCSI and Fibre Channel

[q] Which OS version(s) of a Dell EMC VNXe OS is supported by Veeam?
[a] Dell EMC VNXe Gen 2 OS (3.x.x) is supported, the Gen 1 OS (2.x.x) isn’t.

[q] Which HP 3PAR functionality license is requirement to be able to perform backup and restore from storage snapshots?
[a] The license for the HPE StoreServ storage system must support 3PAR Virtual Copy. Otherwise, you will not be able to perform backup and restore from storage snapshots.

[q] What are the requirement for Veeam Backup & Replication, to be able to use the Netapp FlexClone feature combined with the Backup from Storage snapshot feature?
[a] – NetApp storage system works over iSCSI or FC.
– The FlexClone license is installed on the NetApp storage system.

[q]Which DELL EMC storage systems are supported by Veeam?
[a] VNX, VNXe, VNX2, Unity

[q] Which 2 storage systems enable Veeam to make Snapshot only backup jobs?
[a] Netapp and Nimble storage

[q] To communicate with an EMC DataDomain or HPe Storeonce, Veeam uses a Gateway server. This is not the case when communicating with an Exagrid Appliance. How does Veeam communicate with an Exagrid?
[a] To communicate with ExaGrid, Veeam Backup & Replication deploys the Veeam data mover service on the ExaGrid appliance. The data mover (transport) service stablishes a connection with the source-side Data Mover Service on the backup proxy and enables efficient data transfer over LAN or WAN.

[q]Does the following description match Source side, or Target side deduplication: “Veeam Backup & Replication leverages the HPE StoreOnce Catalyst
technology and two HPE StoreOnce components to work together with Veeam”
[a] Source side deduplication

[q] The gateway server is a backup infrastructure component that “bridges” the backup server and HPE StoreOnce storage system. What are it’s requirements?
[a] – The server must run a 64-bit version of Microsoft Windows.
– The server must be added to the backup infrastructure.
– The server must have access to the backup server and HPE StoreOnce appliance

[q] Which Dell EMC DataDomain features are enabled by using the DD Boost license?
[a] – Distributed Segment Processing
– Advanced Load Balancing
– Link Failover
– Virtual Synthetics

[q] Which proxying backup infrastructure component that “bridges” the Veeam backup server and the Data Domain storage system?
[a] The gateway server

[q] Which protocols used by EMC Data Domain storage systems are supported by Veeam?
[a] TCP/IP and Fibre Channel

[q] What are limitations when using Accelerated Restore of an entire VM from a EMC Data domain?
[a] -If you restore a VM with dynamically expanding disks, the restore process may be slow.
– If you restore a VM using the Network transport mode, the number of VM disks restored in parallel cannot exceed the number of allowed connections to an ESXi host

[q] Veeam Cloud Connect Tenants set up necessary jobs and perform tasks using Veeam backup servers deployed on their side. Which operations can Tenants perform?
[a] – Back up VMs to the cloud repository
