Restoring to Nutanix AHV
Veeam Backup & Replication allows you to restore Amazon EC2 instances from image-level backups created with Veeam Backup for AWS to Nutanix AHV clusters. You can restore EC2 instances to any available restore point.
To perform restore to Nutanix AHV clusters, do the following:
- Check that you have configured the backup infrastructure required for Veeam Backup for Nutanix AHV as described in the Deployment section in the Veeam Backup for Nutanix AHV User Guide.
- Make sure that backups of the necessary EC2 instances are in an on-premises repository. If you have not copied the backup beforehand, follow the instructions from the Creating Backup Copy Jobs for VMs and Physical Machines section in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.
To restore EC2 instances from backups stored in the archive tier of a scale-out backup repository, you do not need to copy backups to on-premises repositories. However, you must retrieve data as described in the Retrieving Backup Files section in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.
- Launch and complete the Restore to Nutanix AHV wizard.
To do that, open the Home view after Veeam Backup & Replication finishes copying backups. In the inventory pane, navigate to the Backups > Disk (Copy) node. In the working area, expand the necessary job, and select backups of EC2 instances that you want to recover. On the ribbon, in the Restore to AHV section, click Entire VM. Then follow the instructions provided in the Restoring VMs Using Veeam Backup & Replication Console section in the Veeam Backup for Nutanix AHV User Guide.
