Veeam works with HPE, NetApp, Dell EMC and NimbleNEW storage products to enable granular recovery from storage snapshots.
Here’s how it works:
- The storage is instructed to create a writeable copy of the required volume snapshot.
- This copy is mounted as the new datastore to the selected vSphere host.
- The restored VM is temporarily registered on the host, so that Instant VM Recovery® of the entire VM can be immediately performed.
- For granular restores, the backup server further mounts the temporary VM’s virtual disk through VMware VADP, and the user can start restoring guest OS files and application items.
- After recovery is complete, the datastore is unmounted from the proxy host and a copy of volume snapshot is deleted.
