Performing Volume Restore
Veeam Backup & Replication allows you to restore EBS volumes of EC2 instances from image-level backups created by Veeam Backup for AWS and convert them to the VMDK, VHD and VHDX formats. You can save the converted disks to any server added to the backup infrastructure or place the disks on a datastore connected to an ESXi host (for the VMDK disk format only). For more information, see the Veeam Backup & Replication, section Disk Export.
You can also restore EBS volumes to Amazon EC2 using the Veeam Backup for AWS Web UI. For more information, see the Veeam Backup for AWS User Guide, section Performing Volume-Level Restore.
To restore EBS volumes of EC2 instances to the VMDK, VHD or VHDX format, do the following:
- In the Veeam Backup & Replication console, open the Home view.
- Navigate to Backups > External Repository.
- Expand the backup policy that protects an EC2 instance whose volume you want to restore, select the necessary EC2 instance and click Export Disk on the ribbon.
- Complete the Export Disk wizard as described in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide, section Exporting Disks.
