A backup vault is a repository that Hybrid Backup Recovery (HBR) uses to store backup data on the cloud. A mirror vault is the mirror of a backup vault. The two vaults reside in different regions. You can use a mirror vault for geo-disaster recovery and cross-region data restoration.

Create a mirror vault

To create a mirror vault, perform the following steps:

  1. Log on to the HBR console.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane, click Overview.
  3. Find the card of the backup vault for which you want to create a mirror vault. In the upper-right corner of the card, click the icon.
  4. In the Create Mirror Vault pane, select the region where you want to create the mirror vault.
    Note To implement disaster recovery, do not select the region where the backup vault resides.
  5. Enter a vault name. The name must be 1 to 32 characters in length.
  6. Enter a description of the vault and click Create.

Restore data from a backup stored in a mirror vault

To restore data from a backup that is stored in a mirror vault, perform the following steps:

  1. Log on to the HBR console.
  2. Select the region where the mirror vault resides. Then, register a storage gateway and set the backup vault to the mirror vault.
  3. Restore data to the storage gateway.
    Note In this step, set the Restore From parameter to Other Gateway.
