Data Recovery

Veeam Backup & Replication offers a number of recovery options for various disaster recovery scenarios:

  • Instant VM Recovery enables you to instantly start a VM directly from a backup file.
  • Entire VM recovery enables you to recover a VM from a backup file to its original or another location.
  • VM files restore enables you to recover separate VM files (virtual disks, configuration files and so on).
  • Virtual disks restore enables you to recover a specific hard drive of a VM from the backup file, and attach it to the original VM or to a new VM.
  • Guest OS File Recovery enables you to recover individual guest OS files from Windows, Linux, Mac and other guest OS file systems.

Veeam Backup & Replication uses the same image-level backup for all data recovery operations. You can restore VMs, VM files and drives, application items and individual guest OS files to the most recent state or to any available restore point.

To view and recover Microsoft Active Directory, Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft SharePoint, Microsoft Exchange or Oracle application items, you can use the capabilities of Veeam Backup Explorers. For more information, see Veeam Backup Explorers User Guide.

To restore VMware VM data directly from storage snapshots, you can use the capabilities of Veeam Explorer for Storage Snapshots. For more information, see Veeam Explorer for Storage Snapshots.

Data Recovery Note:

Veeam Backup & Replication provides backward compatibility: backups created with previous product versions can be restored with later product versions.
