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.
Snapshot Backups 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 brief system outage.

By default, Teradata backs up your site daily and retains the two most-recent successful, full backups in the same cloud region.
