Step 1. Launch Restore to Amazon EC2 Wizard
To restore data from both image-level backups and cloud-native snapshots, launch the Restore to Amazon EC2 wizard. However, we recommend that you restore Amazon EC2 instances from cloud-native snapshots. In this case, Veeam Backup & Replication will be able to invoke native AWS capabilities to make the restore process complete faster.
To launch the Restore to Amazon EC2 wizard, do one of the following:
- On the Home tab, click Restore and select AWS. In the Restore window, select Amazon EC2 instance > Restore from Amazon EC2 snapshot if you want to restore from cloud-native snapshots, or Amazon EC2 instance > Restore from Veeam backup if you want to restore from image-level backups.
- Open the Home view. In the inventory pane, navigate to Backups > External Repository if you want to restore from image-level backups, or to Backups > Snapshots if you want to restore from cloud-native snapshots. In the working area, expand the necessary backup policy, select EC2 instances that you want to restore and click Amazon EC2 on the ribbon. Alternatively, right-click one of the selected instances and select Restore to Amazon EC2.
