First we're going to cover data restore levels, all the different levels that you can restore data at. This includes bare metal restores where you're restoring a whole VM, file level restores where you're restoring individual files, and application level restores where you're actually restoring individual objects located inside of an application. Next we'll be covering some of the capabilities of Veeam that kind of relate to all these different restore levels. We'll be covering instant VM recovery, universal application item recovery, and instant file level recovery. So each backup level and restore level has different advantages from doing each one.

  • Agenda Data restore levels Bare-metal restores File-level restores Application-level restores
  • Data Restore Levels 3 Different levels to backup and restoreApplication item level File level Image level SQL record
  • Data Restore Levels Each level has different advantagesBackup Level App File Bare-metalAppFileBare-metal
  • Traditional restore methods Traditional methods more complicated and require resources Complicated restores require like hardware for image recovery File level backups require application configuration Virtualization provides greater flexibility Backup Restore
  • Traditional file level restores Backup Traditional backups work inside OS Most virtualization backup applications use image Restore backups With an image backup, how are individual files restored? File-level Restore Agent VM File-level Backup
  • Virtualization file level restores Image-level backups can mount a virtual disk No agent on target server, so process is different No need to restore entire VM Process is different for virtualization, result the same File-level Restore VM image VM backup Image-level Backup
  • Traditional bare-metal restores Bare-metal restores do not require an OS present Special Complicated Many pre or DR/BC backups and tricky post steps Restore Post-install Backup tasks Backup Agent Pre-install tasks Backup AgentSimple OS (boot device) Simple OS (boot device)
  • Virtualization bare-metal restores Whole VM is backed up at the image level as a single file Hardware compatibility issues removed with virtualization VMs all have the same virtual hardware VMs can be restored to alternate locations Isolation easy when restoring VMs Register a VM VM image Backup
  • Traditional application level restores  Typically restoring to original location  Not individual files, but one large file with many objects  Limited awareness to file structure  Agent or native restores Application Backup Agent OSBackup Restore App Item using Application Restored native tool Restore Application OS Backup OS Backup
  • Virtualization application level restores Virtualization simplifies recovery  Copying objects from backup to source can be complicated Backup  Need application objects and restore to source  Virtualization makes restoring applications easier Restore  No need for dedicated hardware Restore App Item using native tool Restorewhole VM Isolated Production backup environment
