Veeam offsite help

Hi all,
We are currently backing up a virtual machine contaning two vms. We are using Veeam to backup the data to a NAS. We would like to copy once and a while our VBK file to an offsite location as supplemental protection.
This is relatively easy. However, our question is, can we easly restore this file if need be and how to do this? The file will not be on the original NAS anymore, so the restore point will not show up in Veeam.
Any help?
Thanks

You import the VBK file back into Veeam Backup and Replication to allow you to Restore.

As long as you have a .vbk somewhere, you can restore even if you don’t have all the .vib’s (incrementals).  You would just be missing restore points if the .vib’s are not present.    Version 7 is going to give you the ability to do this now with ease.    Should be out in Q3 hopefully.  

You can also restore from that .vbk with the original backup server, or a new one, you would just have to re-import that backup.    Hope that helps!
