Restoring to Microsoft Azure
Restore to Microsoft Azure can be performed only using backup files stored on backup repositories for which you have specified a Hash-based Message Authentication Code (HMAC) key associated with the service account that is used to access the repository. To learn how to specify credentials for repositories, see sections Creating New Repositories and Connecting to Existing Appliances.
Veeam Backup & Replication allows you to restore VM instances from image-level backups created with Veeam Backup for Google Cloud to Microsoft Azure as Azure VMs. You can restore VM instances to any available restore point. For more information, see the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide, section Restore to Microsoft Azure.
Before you start the restore operation:
- Configure the initial settings of an Azure account or Azure Stack account as described in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide, section Configuring Initial Settings.
- Check the limitations and prerequisites described in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide, section Before You Begin.
To restore a VM instance to Microsoft Azure, do the following:

- Navigate to Backups > External Repository.
- Expand the backup policy that protects a VM instance that you want to restore, select the necessary instance and click Microsoft Azure Iaas on the ribbon.
- Complete the Restore to Microsoft Azure wizard as described in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide, section Restoring to Microsoft Azure.
