In the Vantage Console, there are two options to backup and restore data:
Option Description
Standard Backups Restore tables, databases, and full system-level data.
Snapshots Restore data at the full system level only. This is the preferred method for full-system backups for disaster recovery purposes.
To manage backups, you must be assigned to the Site Super Admin or Site Admin role. Submit a change request to perform the following backup tasks:
  • Enable daily, weekly, or monthly backups
  • Create a new backup job
  • Enable auto-restart to rerun failed backups
  • Receive weekly backup reports by email
  • Restore from a backup
    Snapshot restores require a system outage.

Storage for standard backups is sold separately on a pay-for-what-you-use consumption basis. Teradata runs full system backups only as instructed (for example, number and frequency of backups, copies retained, and so on). Backups are saved in the same Google Cloud region as the source system.
