Restoring to Amazon EC2

You can use the Veeam Backup & Replication console to restore computers from Veeam Agent backups to Amazon EC2.

Considerations and Limitations

If you restore a Veeam Agent computer to Amazon EC2, consider the following:

  • You can use backups of Microsoft Windows and Linux computers stored in a Veeam backup repository only. You cannot perform this operation with Veeam Agent backups stored in a Veeam Cloud Connect repository.
  • Veeam Agent backups must be created at the entire computer level or volume level.
  • [For backups of Linux computers] If the disk you want to restore contains an LVM volume group, consider the following:
  • Since LVM volume group is a logical entity that spans across the physical disks, Veeam Agent treats the original disk and the LVM volume group as separate entities. Therefore, Veeam Agent will restore the original disk and the LVM volume group as 2 separate disks. This way, all data, including the data within the LVM volume group, is accurately restored.
  • Restoring the original disk and the LVM volume groups as 2 separate disks requires an increased amount of 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 the storage space equal to the size of the 2 original disks and the 2 LVM volume groups from these disks.

Restore to Amazon EC2

The procedure of restore to Amazon EC2 from a Veeam Agent backup practically does not differ from the same procedure for a VM backup. To learn more about restore to Amazon EC2, see the Restoring to Amazon EC2 section in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.
