Data Recovery

In various disaster recovery scenarios, you can perform the following restore operations using backed-up data:

  • Restore of VM instances — restore VM instances from cloud-native snapshots or image-level backups to the original location or to a new location.
  • Restore of Cloud SQL instances — restore Cloud SQL instances from cloud-native snapshots or image-level backups to the original location or to a new location.
  • Instant Recovery — immediately restore VM instances from image-level backups to VMware vSphere and Hyper-V environments, and to Nutanix AHV clusters.
  • VM instance disk restore — restore virtual disks and convert them to disks of the VMDK, VHD or VHDX format.
  • Restore to AWS — restore VM instances from image-level backups to AWS as EC2 instances.
  • Restore to Microsoft Azure — restore VM instances from image-level backups to Microsoft Azure as Azure VMs.
  • Restore to Nutanix AHV — restore VM instances from image-level backups to Nutanix AHV as Nutanix AHV VMs.

Note

You can use restore points stored in standard repositories to perform all the listed recovery operations, while restore points stored in archive repositories can only be used to perform restore of VM and Cloud SQL instances to the original or to a new location.
