Restoring Machines

In this article

    You can restore physical or virtual machines from backups to Google Compute Engine. The restored machine appears in the Google Cloud Console, and you can use it as a regular Google Compute Engine virtual machine.


    If you add the Google Compute Engine appliance to the Veeam Backup & Replication infrastructure and plan to restore Google Compute Engine virtual machines from restore points that were created using the appliance, you do not need to configure the proxy appliance. Also, restore to Google Compute Engine works as described in the Performing Instance Restore section in the Veeam Backup for Google Cloud Platform User Guide.

    Before you restore a machine to Google Compute Engine, check prerequisites. Then use the Restore to Google Compute Engine wizard to restore the machine.

    1. Launch the Restore to Google Compute Engine wizard
    2. Select a machine and restore point
    3. Specify credentials and data center settings
