To improve out RTO time we are thinking about following scenario:
current we backup VM via VSA backup to MA, and AuxCopy then the data to a CIFS share which is sitting on a NetApp with SnapLock configured . In case of ransomware attack, we will restoration via VM restoration process from the CIFS share.
In future we want restore in case of disaster direct the volume which host the VMs
now my question is possible to handle this during commvault completely? VM backup configured with IntelliSnap take snapshot on volume, then it triggers a SnapVault to a NearStore only for full backups (SnapLock configured), after this it takes backup copy for standard backup, where we have longer retention and possibility to restore single VM or single files….
In case of disaster, we can restore full backup volume via IntelliSnap restoration then we restore VM backups from the standard backup. This should be much faster as restore whole VM from VSA backups.
Question is will this work, or is there a thinking error.
we use :
VM: indexversion 1
