Quick VM Recovery
What is Instant Restore?
As the name suggests, instant restore is the quickest recovery that lets you recover the backed up data within a few minutes or seconds thereby reducing downtime and ensuring business continuity.
Vembu’s Quick VM Recovery feature lets you instantly restore the backup data (VMs & physical Windows machines) as a VM on hypervisors like VMware, Hyper-V, and KVM and enables you to meet the RTO less than 15 mins.
How it works
- When you initiate Quick VM Recovery, Vembu BDR backup server will directly read the backup data from the storage repository, which is encrypted and compressed.
- Once the data is read, Vembu proceeds to create VHD, VHDX, VMDK, and IMG disks for the backups (VMs/physical machines) in the Vembu Virtual Drive without occupying any physical storage.
- Then, Vembu enables the instant recovery of your backup data as a VM within the ESXi/Hyper-V/KVM by using these virtual disk files. This brings your machine back in less than 15 mins.
- When the VM is booted and in a ready to use state, all the modifications are stored in a separate virtual disk file and this persistent data can be used while rebuilding the source machine.
