Run vm from backup in Azure

Post by ChrisCA » May 25, 2017 9:24 pm

Hi,

If you have backups stored in azure is there any feasible way of doing something similar to Instant VM Recovery within Azure, or are we still restricted to doing Recovery to Azure? That's an amazing option but I was wondering if there was any way of cutting down on recovery time given that the data is already in Azure.

Cheers,
Chris

The easiest way today is Direct Restore to Microsoft Azure. However, if the VM backup files are in Azure and you're restoring to the same Azure Datacenter the data never actually traverses the web and is much quicker than if you were for instance restoring from on-premises to Azure using Direct Restore.

If I'm understanding this right, can't we have an Azure vm with hyper-v role installed and added as a server to b&r to enable Instant VM recovery?

Unfortunately, you cannot run Hyper-V role on Azure VMs, because Azure VMs are already running on Hyper-V themselves and Azure does not support nested hypervisors.

Nested virtualization on Azure will soon be supported. This was announced at the Build conference but only a few types of VM's will support this (Dv3 and Ev3 if I am not mistaken). Unfortunately I don't have a date when they will start supporting it

It's inevitable :) Nested virtualization is the short-term future path for disaster recovery. We are using this approach from the very beginning in VMware vCloud.
