Step 1. Launch Restore to Google Compute Engine Wizard
To restore data from image-level backups or cloud-native snapshots, launch the Restore to Google Compute Engine wizard. However, we recommend that you restore VM instances from cloud-native snapshots. In this case, Veeam Backup & Replication will be able to invoke native GCP capabilities to make the restore process complete faster.
To launch the Restore to Google Compute Engine wizard, do one of the following:
- On the Home tab, click Restore and select GCE. In the Restore window, select Restore from GCE 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 VM instances that you want to restore and click Google CE on the ribbon. Alternatively, right-click one of the selected instances and select Restore to Google CE.
