A backup vault is a Hybrid Backup Recovery (HBR) cloud warehouse used to store backup data on the cloud. Backup data from multiple clients can be stored in the same vault. You can create a remote mirror vault for a vault to meet the disaster recovery requirements.

  • After a mirror vault is created, data that is being backed up by a backup job in the source vault are synchronized to the mirror vault in real time. The historical backups of the source vault start being synchronized to a mirror vault 90 minutes after the creation of the mirror vault.
  • You can only create one mirror vault for each backup vault.
  • You can restore backups from a mirror vault but cannot back up data to a mirror vault.
  • You must delete a mirror vault before deleting its source vault.
  • A source vault is always created when you create a backup client.

Create a mirror vault

Proceed as follows:

  1. Log on to the HBR console.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane, select Overview.
  3. Locate a backup vault for which you need to create a mirror vault, and click the icon in the upper-right corner of the backup vault.
  4. In the Create Mirror Vault dialog box, select a region where the mirror vault is located.
    Note For disaster recovery, you cannot select a region where the source vault is located.
  5. Enter the Vault Name. The vault name must be less than 32 characters in length.
  6. Enter the Vault Description as required, and then click Create.

Use a mirror vault

After a mirror vault is created, you can restore backups from the mirror vault as needed. Proceed as follows:
  1. Download and install a file client on a server or virtual machine to which you need to restore data.
    Note When downloading the file client, you must specify the name of the target vault as the Vault Name.
  2. Log on to the file client on the target server or virtual machine and then restore backups from another file client.
    Note You can also use the backup search function to restore data.
