Veeam Backup & Replication offers the following types of recovery:
- VM recovery — to restore entire VMs to different data protection environments: to VMware vSphere, Hyper-V, Amazon EC2 and so on.
- Disk recovery — to recover and export disks.
- Item recovery — to recover VM files, guest OS files and folders, and application items.
- Secure restore — to scan data with antivirus software before restoring it to the production environment.
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.
Veeam Backup & Replication provides backward compatibility: backups created with previous product versions can be restored with later product versions.
