Azure Data Lake Storage Gen2

You can use the Commvault software to back up and restore Azure Data Lake Storage Gen2.


Backups You Can Perform

  • Full backups

  • Incremental backups

  • Synthetic full backups

Data You Can Back Up

With full and incremental backups, you can back up the following data at the object level:

  • Metadata of the object

  • ACLs of the object

After a full backup, if the ACL of an object is modified, but the data has not changed, then the next incremental backup does not include that object. Incremental backups include only objects whose data has changed.

Data You Cannot Back Up

  • Files and folders without a name.

  • Files and folders that contain a forward slash ("/") in their names.


Destinations You Can Restore To

  • The original location (in place)

  • Any of the cloud storage systems

  • Disk

Data You Can Restore

You can restore the data, along with the metadata.


You cannot restore metadata to a different cloud storage system.
