Direct Restore to Microsoft Azure from Veeam!
Today Veeam annonced a new cool feature for all of us Microsoft Azure friends!
So Veeam Direct Restore is a free virtual appliance from Veeam which delivers cloud restore options for Veeam Backup and replication and also for Veeam Endpoint backup. (Now remember even thou it is free you still need to pay Microsoft for the compute resources!) but anyways this allows us to restore our on-premises Windows-based VMs, physical servers and endpoints directly to Azure!
this is based upon a marketplace template in Azure which can be found here –> http://bit.ly/1RpkVUx (and no you cannot provision a marketplace VM with a free sub)
After the machine has been provisioned and you have logged inn you have two options available
Veeam B&R and Azure Recovery. Clicking on the Azure Recovery will put the entire screen in like a advanced start menu screen, and from there we are given different options. (Whoh! green!) this is just meant
So let’s setup the configuraiton.
