Not long ago, we performed a backup of Azure Virtual Machine by using Azure Backup. We have leave it running for few days and it time to check out the result and performing restoration.
To refer to our previous post about backup, please checkout:- http://www.ms4u.info/2015/03/backup-azure-virtual-machine-by-using.html
[ Check History]
On the Backup Vault | Click on Job Tabs. You can filter to view the job according to type, status, operation and date.
You can drill down to view each job details. Below is some sample:-
[ View total recovery point]
Able to view the total of each protection items
[ Perform restoration ]
To restore, click on PROTECTED ITEM tab, select your protected item and click RESTORE
Here you can have an option to
- restore the VM from the latest recovery point or older recovery point.
- restore to an existing cloud service or create a new cloud service to create the VM.
- specify the virtual network and subnet for the restored VM
During our testing, we found out that we can perform multiple restoration of different VM without waiting for existing job to complete.
Give it a try yourself and start to protect your VM on Azure.
