questions about direct restore to Azure using VMware VM backup

Post by Yuya » Jul 18, 2019 12:59 am

Hello,

I have questions about direct restore to Azure using VMware VM backup.

1) Does Veeam convert drivers for the Azure environment?
For example, delete VMware Tools?

2) In general, what kind of work do users need to do after restoring to Azure?

3) I restore Active Directory VM to Azure.
Do you want to perform "Non-Authoritative Restore" as you would restore to VMware?

4) I want to know the speed of restoration.
Please let me know if there is a use case.

Thanks,
Yuya

Hi Yuya,

Please find the answers below.

1. Sure, we convert/enable drivers to guarantee VM bootability in Azure, however, we do not delete VMware Tools.

2. Nothing, but you may want to delete VMware Tools :). Note that your newly restored AD VM will have default network configuration and a new MAC, so you might want to configure the network settings first of all.

3. It depends on the situation. If you have lost a single AD server and there are alive servers processing current data that are able to be the source for the data replication then you'd like to perform the non-authoritative restore. While in most cases when the whole AD infra. has been lost and there are no AD servers to replicate current AD data from you'll require to perform the authoritative restore.

4. There is no definitive answer since it depends on a lot of factors. To name a few: network bandwidth, latency, target region, type of data on VM disks, Azure proxy usage, etc. We always recommend using Azure proxy when restoring your VMs since it may significantly improve the restore speed. Generally speaking, 20 MB/sec per VM disk is a good speed in case of Azure proxy usage, but there is no guarantee you'll be able to achieve it in your situation.

Thanks
