About protecting data in Amazon Glacier
To protect your data for long-term retention you can back up the data to Amazon (AWS) Glacier using NetBackup. Using NetBackup, you can create a storage server with GLACIER or GLACIER_DEEP_ARCHIVE storage class.
To configure a cloud storage server for Amazon GLACIER or DEEP ARCHIVE storage class
- Configure the Amazon GLACIER or GLACIER_DEEP_ARCHIVE cloud storage server.
- Create a disk pool using the Amazon bucket for GLACIER or GLACIER_DEEP_ARCHIVE storage.
- Create a backup policy.
Also ensure that you also have the required permissions. See Permissions required for Amazon S3 cloud provider user.
Use the bpduplicate command to duplicate tape data to Amazon Glacier storage.
When you configure a storage server to transition data to Amazon Glacier, consider the following:
Ensure that GLACIER or GLACIER_DEEP_ARCHIVE is supported for the region to which the bucket belongs.
For restores, set the retrieval retention period to minimum 3 days.
Selectoption wherever possible to reduce time and cost for image imports.
To retrieve the data that is sent to Glacier, there is an inherent time delay of around 4 hours per fragment of the backup image. For phase 2 of image imports, this time delay is prevalent for images in the Glacier storage. However, if you enablein the policy, the time delay for phase 2 imports reduces drastically from 4 hours to a few minutes per fragment. Phase 1 imports are faster, irrespective of whether is enabled or not for the policy.
See the NetBackup Administrator's Guide, Volume I to know more about supported workloads and file systems for.
See the NetBackup Administrator's Guide, Volume I to know more about the phases during image imports.
You can reduce restore time by parallel restores. For this operation, you use multistreaming to backup which creates multiple images at logical boundaries.
Workload Granular Recovery (GRT) or VMware Single File Restore (SFR), increases the time-out on the master, media, and client to more than 5 hours.
Consider the following limitations:
NetBackup Accelerator feature is not supported for policies of the storage units that are created for GLACIER or GLACIER_DEEP_ARCHIVE. Do not select thecheck box.
