Performing Entire VM Restore
In case a disaster strikes, you can restore entire Azure VM from a cloud-native snapshot or an image-level backup. Veeam Backup & Replication allows you to restore one or more Azure VMs at a time, to the original location or to a new location.
How Instance Restore Works
To restore Azure VMs from cloud-native snapshots, Veeam Backup & Replication uses native Azure capabilities. To restore VMs from image-level backups, Veeam Backup & Replication uses different algorithms depending on whether a backup appliance is added to the backup infrastructure:
- If a backup appliance is connected to the backup server, Veeam Backup & Replication uses the restore algorithm described in section Performing Entire VM Restore.
- If a backup appliance is not connected to the backup server, Veeam Backup & Replication uses the restore algorithm described in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide, section How Restore to Microsoft Azure Works.
