2 steps to restore ANY backup to Microsoft Azure

Veeam Direct Restore to Microsoft Azure, included in Veeam Backup & Replication™ enables users to take on-premises VMware and Hyper-V VMs, physical servers and endpoints, and restore them to Microsoft Azure.

This feature can also be combined with Veeam PN (Powered Network) to create an on-demand recovery solution — providing on-premises access to VMs restored into Microsoft Azure.

Restore ANY backup directly to Azure
Today’s modern data center is no longer constrained by the physical data center location. IT organizations can optimize resource allocation and improve operational scalability and efficiency with the help of Microsoft Azure cloud. Veeam’s Direct Restore to Microsoft Azure enables admins to restore physical (P2V) or virtual (V2V) workloads to Azure without complex configurations or additional hardware investments, minimizing operational costs.

Quickly restore workloads to Azure

Get a fast and efficient Azure restore via any type of Veeam backup file. With this technology, there is no need to pre-deploy an appliance, and you can restore to Azure directly from the Veeam Backup & Replication user interface. The Azure Virtual Machine Agent is installed automatically (on Windows-based VMs only), and sequential, parallel disk and VM-restore options are available.

Execute planned workload Portability

Are you planning to move some of your VMs — or even a legacy physical server — to Microsoft Azure public cloud? Now you can easily execute planned workload portability of VMware and Hyper-V VMs, or your remaining legacy physical servers, to the cloud.

Create an Azure-based test environment

Leveraging Azure as a test environment can be very beneficial. Since it is created from your backups, it mirrors your production environment, and you can safely test patches and critical updates before rolling them out to production.

This also allows you to accelerate development cycles without the need to purchase or provision new on-premises hardware.
