In the Console, you can backup and restore data using snapshots.

Snapshots are full system backups only, not object-level backups. Creating and restoring snapshots is much faster than creating and restoring conventional, full-system backups at the object level. Using snapshot backups enables more frequent backups of the entire system and less system downtime.
Snapshots are only valid on the same cloud platform they were created and within the same region. Snapshot backups can be moved to other regions with the assistance of Teradata Operations.

Snapshots are ideal for the following use cases:

  • Full system backups for data protection
  • Full system backups for Disaster Recovery purposes
