Instant VM recovery is great as an option for some scenarios, but in others it can be almost useless. A common example would be for enterprises that use FiberChannel for their production SAN and do not have adequate Ethernet infrastructure to run storage traffic for production VMs as well as normal networking.
A full restore will always "work" to restore your data to some kind of production storage, instant VM recovery is situational.
Thank you so much for your answer!
In our case, we are running our Veeam on the same server where the Veeam data is stored: A windows server with just tons of disks while our production environment is really a SAN-based environment. Sounds like in our environment Instant Recovery would be the way to go? Or did I miss something
