Some answers to the most common questions about pricing

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.

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.

What's the best time schedule of a Backup Archive job?

As each backup archive job session will generate a full backup in the cloud object storage, it's recommended to only run the backup archive job once a week or once a month, a job schedule that is not so frequent.
