Managing VM Data
After a backup policy successfully creates a restore point of an Azure VM according to the specified schedule, or after you create a snapshot of a VM manually, Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure adds the VM to the resource list on the Protected Data tab.
The Protected Data tab displays Azure resources that are already protected by Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure. Each resource is represented with a set of properties, such as:
- Virtual Machine — the name of the Azure VM.
- Policy — the name of the backup policy that protects the Azure VM.
- Restore Points — the number of restore points created for the Azure VM.
- Last Backup — the date and time of the most recent restore point created for the Azure VM.
- Region — the region in which the Azure VM resides.
- VM Size — the VM size of the Azure VM.
- Resource Group — the resource group that stores resources related to the Azure VM.
- Operating System — the operating system running on the Azure VM.
- File-level Recovery URL — a link to the File-level recovery browser.
The link appears when Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure starts a restore session to perform file-level recovery. The link contains a public DNS name of the worker instance hosting the File-level recovery browser and authentication information used to access this worker instance.
- Tenant ID — the unique identification number of the Azure tenant to which the Azure VM belongs.
- Subscription ID — the unique identification number of the Microsoft Azure subscription that is used to manage costs of the Azure VM.
On the Protected Data tab, you can also perform the following actions:
- Remove restore points if you no longer need them. For more information, see Removing Backups and Snapshots.
- Restore data of backed-up Azure VMs. For more information, see Performing VM Restore.
