EC2 Instance and Azure VM Disk Export

Veeam Backup & Replication allows you to export disks of Amazon EC2 instances and Microsoft Azure VMs in the VMDK, VHD or VHDX formats.

You can export disks from the following backups:

During disk export, Veeam Backup & Replication creates standard virtual disks that can be used by VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V VMs.

EC2 Instance and Azure VM Disk Export Note:

When you export a disk in the VMDK format, Veeam Backup & Replication creates a pair of files that make up the VM virtual disk: a descriptor file and file with the virtual disk content.

You can export the converted disks to any server added to the backup infrastructure or place disks on a datastore connected to an ESXi host (for VMDK disk format only). VMDK disks can be exported as thin provision and thick disks. VHD/VHDX disks are always exported as dynamically expanding.

Veeam Backup & Replication supports batch disk export. For example, if you choose to export 2 instance disks, Veeam Backup & Replication will convert them to 2 virtual disks and store these disks in the specified location.
