Restore from a Storage Snapshot in Minutes

With Veeam Explorer for Storage Snapshots, you can take advantage of the low overhead that periodic storage snapshots offer for low RPOs and let Veeam automate the whole recovery process for you, helping you deliver low RTOs as well. With this product, you can:

  • Recover guest OS files, application items or even an entire VM from a storage snapshot in two minutes or less.
  • Restore directly from storage snapshots, eliminating the need for staging snapshot contents to disk and intermediate restores.
  • Reduce the time needed to mount snapshots by over 10 times compared to manual processes, which lowers your RTOs and avoids human errors that can occur during critical recovery steps.
  • And more!

And it’s easy to use — just a few clicks in the Veeam interface and you can restore directly from any of Veeam’s storage partners.

How It Works:

Veeam works with the world’s leading storage providers to enable granular recovery from storage snapshots.

Here’s how it works:

1. Storage is instructed to create a writeable copy of the required volume snapshot.

2. This copy is mounted as the new datastore to the selected vSphere host.

3-5. The restored VM is temporarily registered on the host so Instant VM Recovery® of the entire VM can be immediately performed.

6. For granular restores, the backup server further mounts the temporary VM’s virtual disk through VMware VADP, and then the user can start restoring guest OS files and application items.

7. After recovery is complete, the datastore is unmounted from the proxy host and a copy of the volume snapshot is deleted.
