Restoring to Google Cloud Platform

You can restore Linux machines from Veeam Agent backups to Google Cloud Platform. You can use backups created on the Veeam backup repository. Only volume-level backups are supported.

Restoring to Google Cloud PlatformIMPORTANT

If the disk you want to restore contains an LVM volume group, Veeam Agent will restore the original disk and the LVM volume group as 2 separate disks. Among other things, this leads to the increase of the required storage space. For example, you restore a machine with 2 disks, and a separate LVM volume group is configured on each of these disks. In this case, Veeam Agent will restore 4 disks. The restored disks will consume storage space equal to the size of 2 original disks and 2 LVM volume groups from these disks.

The procedure of restore to Google Cloud Platform practically does not differ from a regular one. To learn more about restore to Google Cloud Platform, see the Restore to Google Cloud Platform section in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.
