How to orchestrate application recovery from backup

In Veeam Availability Orchestrator v2, we have two types of Orchestration Plans. First, the Failover Plan we all know and love, which quickly brings your replicas online.

With the introduction of Restore Plans, you can now orchestrate restores from backups with ease. This is a game changer as it means orchestrated DR isn’t just for enterprises or the most mission-critical of VMs — it’s for all organizations, all applications and all data. Using the same, simple wizard, building a Restore Plan is quick and easy. Let’s take a walk through that process.
