SureBackup is designed to speed up and simplify the test restores — one of the most crucial parts of any data protection strategy. SureBackup lets you verify recoverability of your backups in a fully automated manner, without having to first extract backups to your production storage - which can take prohibitively long time, thus limiting the number of test restores you can perform. This is achieved by running the tested VMs directly from backup files in an automatically provisioned isolated environment, preventing any impact on the production environment. Such approach dramatically accelerates the entire restore testing process, allowing you to potentially verify every created restore point of every protected VM, ensuring that your production restores will function as expected in case a disaster strikes.


The following step-by-step instruction will help you to configure an Application Group, a Virtual Lab and a SureBackup job.
