Restore VMs from VMware environment to Azure

Veeam Logoby mephisto » Fri Sep 30, 2016 9:52 am

Hi guys,

I was reading the direct restore webpage https://www.veeam.com/cloud-direct-restore-azure.html as I was wondering if it is possible to recover VMware VMs to Azure using this tool?

If not, what are the other methods to replicate/backup VMs from VMware ESXi to Azure? Is it feasible/possible?

Thanks!

Hi Mephisto,

Yes, it will be possible to restore a VMware VM backed up with B&R to Azure

Cheers

Thanks, I ended up finding in the documentation later on about it, need to check my eyes!

Just noticed the limitation on virtual disk sizes, just 1TB per virtual disk seems quite small. Most of my VMs will fall outside this and they are not massive or anything.

Hi Mephisto,

Unfortunately, this is not our limit but a limit in Azure. One virtual disk can be maximum 1 TB in that environment. MSFT has confirmed that they are working on supporting GEN 2 VM's and support for virtual disks with 32 TB instead of 1 but no timeline has been given. From the moment that becomes available, Veeam will certainly look into this and see how fast we can support those but for now we need to work with what Azure can give us...

Cheers
