Restoring to Microsoft Azure

You can restore computers from Veeam Agent backups to Microsoft Azure. For restore to Microsoft Azure, you can use backups of Microsoft Windows computers created on the Veeam backup repository. You cannot perform this operation with Veeam Agent backups created on the Veeam Cloud Connect repository. Backups must be created at the entire machine level or volume level.

If you restore a Veeam Agent machine to Microsoft Azure, consider the following:

  • If you recover a EFI-based system to Microsoft Azure, Veeam Agent will restore a BIOS-based Generation 1 VM.
  • Veeam Backup & Replication offers experimental support for generation 2 VMs within restore to Microsoft Azure feature. To learn more, see the Generation 2 VM Support section in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.


The procedure of restore to Microsoft Azure from a Veeam Agent backup practically does not differ from the same procedure for a VM backup. To learn more about restore to Microsoft Azure, see the Restore to Microsoft Azure section in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.
