You can browse and restore backed-up data for an IBM Spectrum Scale (GPFS) subclient.
Browsing and Restoring IBM Spectrum Scale (GPFS) Data Based on Backup Time
You can browse the IBM Spectrum Scale (GPFS) data either from the most recent backup or from a previous point in time.
You can restore from the latest backups to keep your content on a secondary storage, such as tape, for long-term storage.
You can restore from the data backed up on a specific date to restore to a point in time before the content became unusable.
You can restore from the data backed for a date range if your content for that range was deleted accidentally.
The destination where you restore data is determined by your restore objective. Generally, you perform an in-place or an out-of-place restore.
When you restore data in place, you restore it to the same nodes (same GPFS cluster) from which the data was backed up.
When you restore data out of place, you can restore it to a different GPFS cluster.
File system restore
When you restore data, you can restore it to a UNIX file server.
