Restoring to Google Compute Engine

You can restore computers from Veeam Agent backups to Google Compute Engine. For restore to Google Compute Engine, you can use backups of Microsoft Windows and Linux 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 computer level or volume level.

[For backups of Linux computers] 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 Compute Engine from a Veeam Agent backup practically does not differ from the same procedure for a VM backup. To learn more about restore to Google Compute Engine, see the Restore to Google Compute Engine section in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.
