Improved Data Availability
Saving extra backup copies on cloud object storage guarantees high data availability
because it effectively prevents data loss from system failure or site damage in the
primary production environment. Vinchin Backup & Recovery calls Amazon S3 API to help
virtualization users easily realize cloud-based data protection. By archiving backups in
the local backup repository to Amazon S3, you can make sure all critical data is always
accessible and can be recovered anywhere, anytime you want. Restored archive data can be
used in Full VM Restore, Instant VM Restore, and Granular Restore to effectively fix
different types of urgent issues in the production environment.

task done in advance, Vinchin Backup & Recovery can now transfer the archived version of
your backups to the cloud at ease. With smart retention policy available, you can also

the data you want to archive beforehand during initial backup process, but also secures
the whole archive process when data is being transferred to Amazon S3. Under the

management of all data protection features. By logging in the console with a unique
account, you can easily operate everything that links to cloud archive jobs and archive
restore jobs, making connections between the backup system and cloud object storage
close at hand. You can create a cloud archive job for existing backups of a single VM or
a whole virtual infrastructure to automatically run once-off or by schedule per day,
week, or month, or restore any old cloud archive to the on-premises backup repository
for further use, which all require only 3-4 steps of straightforward configurations. You
can also directly delete any full restore point stored in Amazon S3 without any extra

Frequently asked questions when archiving backups to cloud
Can I restore VMs directly with the backup archive data?
No. You need to create an archive restore job to restore the archive data to onsite storage
first, then use the restored data to restore VMs.
Can I archive my file backups and database backups?
The answer is NO. Backup Archive feature can currently be used to only archive VM backups on
Vinchin Backup & Recovery v6.5 and later versions.
Why I only got one full restore point of my VM backups after achiving? What happened to the
incremental restore points?
Each backup archive job session will only send a latest version of full backup to the cloud
object storage. If the lastest backup is incremental, Vinchin Backup & Recovery will
transfer necessary data blocks of the backup chain to the cloud object storage to form a
latest full restore point.
What are the differences between backup copy and backup archive?
Backup copy feature will make an exactly the same copy of your backups (VM, file and
database backups) to another storage or to another location for disaster recovery, while
backup archive only sends a latest full restore point (1 full restore point per job session)
to the cloud object storage.
