Traditional LUN Cloning
For NetApp storage systems that do not have the FlexClone license installed, Veeam Backup & Replication uses the NetApp traditional LUN cloning technology.
During restore from storage snapshots, Veeam Backup & Replication creates a LUN clone. The storage snapshot from which you want to restore data is used as a backing copy. The LUN clone is then mounted to an ESXi host, and you can restore VM data from it.
