Restoring Machines

In this article

    You can restore physical or virtual machines from backups to Amazon EC2. The restored machine appears in the Amazon EC2 console, and you can use it as a regular EC2 instance.


    If you added the Veeam Backup for AWS appliance to the Veeam Backup & Replication infrastructure and you plan to restore Amazon EC2 instances from restore points that were created using the appliance, the steps of the restore wizard differ from the steps described in this guide. For more information, see the Restoring to Amazon section in the Integration with Veeam Backup for AWS Guide.
