Restoring to Microsoft Azure

In this article

    In case a disaster strikes, you can restore entire Azure VMs from cloud-native snapshots or image-level backups.

    To restore VMs from cloud-native snapshots, Veeam Backup & Replication invokes native Azure capabilities. To restore VMs from image-level backups, Veeam Backup & Replication uses different algorithms depending on whether a Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure appliance is present in the Veeam Backup & Replication infrastructure:

    • If a Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure appliance and Azure Blob storage connected to it are present in the Veeam Backup & Replication infrastructure, Veeam Backup & Replication uses the restore algorithm described in the How VM Restore Works section in the Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure User Guide.
    • If a Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure appliance is not present in the Veeam Backup & Replication infrastructure and only Azure Blob storage connected to this appliance is present there, Veeam Backup & Replication uses the restore algorithm described in the How Restore to Microsoft Azure Works section in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.

    1. Check prerequisites
