You can restore machines to Microsoft Azure from the following types of backups:
- Backup files of Microsoft Windows and Linux VMs created with Veeam Backup & Replication. You can use backups of VMware vSphere VMs and VMware vCloud Director VMs.
- Backups of Microsoft Windows machines created with Veeam Agent for Windows. Backups must be created at the entire machine level or volume level.
- Backups of Linux machines created with Veeam Agent for Linux. Backups must be created at the entire machine level or volume level.
You can restore a machine to the latest restore point or any previous restore point in the backup chain. A backup chain from which you plan to restore a machine must reside on a backup repository added to the backup infrastructure.
You can also import a backup to the Veeam Backup & Replication console. For more information, see Importing Backups.
