Step 1. Launch Restore to Azure Wizard
To restore data from both image-level backups and cloud-native snapshots, launch the Restore to Microsoft Azure wizard. However, we recommend that you restore Azure VMs from cloud-native snapshots. In this case, Veeam Backup & Replication will be able to invoke native Azure capabilities to makes the restore process complete faster.
To launch the Restore to Microsoft Azure wizard, do one of the following:
- On the Home tab, click Restore and select Microsoft Azure. In the Restore window, select Restore from Microsoft Azure VM snapshot if you want to restore from cloud-native snapshots, or 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 VMs that you want to restore and click Microsoft Azure on the ribbon. As an alternative, right-click one of the selected VMs and select Restore to Microsoft Azure.
