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 Restore to Microsoft Azure enables admins to restore or migrate physical (P2V) or virtual (V2V) workloads to Azure without complex configurations or additional hardware investments, minimizing operational costs.
Azure can serve as an additional recovery option that can run and scale when you need this the most.
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 migrations
Are you planning to migrate some of your VMs — or even a legacy physical server — to Microsoft Azure public cloud? Now you can easily execute planned workload migrations of VMware and Hyper-V VMs, or your remaining legacy physical servers, to the cloud.
Create an Azure-based test environment
Azure can be very handy as a test environment.
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.
The ability to restore your backups directly to Microsoft Azure means you can leverage Azure as an on-demand cloud data center for recovery, taking full advantage of Azure’s flexible and scalable cloud resources.Read "3 Use Cases for Leveraging Veeam Backups in Azure"
