For your first question: you can build a scale-out repository with a capacity tier on AWS S3 storage. Then your backups can be moved or copied to the S3 storage.

Please keep in mind, you need a Universal License or a socket licebse in level enterprise or enterprise plus for this.

 

For your second question: you want to restore your on-premise VMs to AWS? Could you please explain your usecase in a little bit more detail?

I don’t think that this is working…

But you can restore your on-premise backups to AWS directly.

I don’t think it is working in the way you said. But you can - as said above - restore your VMS with your on-premise VBR Server to AWS ES2.

This is correct as noted by Joe. Just follow the link above about restoring directly to EC2.

Yep, just also remember, it’s easy to restore the VMs to the cloud, the security & connectivity (both internally and external) is where you need to pre-plan for your recovery to ensure it works as you expect moving forwards.

 

For example, I can spin up a domain controller VM in AWS nice and easy, but without any connectivity between my offices and that AWS VM via any dedicated link or VPN, it doesn’t benefit me as I can’t auth via it.

Hi, can see Importing VM was only 27% done when it failed unexpectedly (don’t know why it ticked that stage). You’ll need to jump into the logs to find out what happened. Interestingly the disk uploaded in about 3.5mins but it took over 15 hours to import the VM. That’s clearly not right and makes me believe there was either a communication problem between VBR & AWS or a permissions issue. The logs will tell us more however.

I hope all the answers have helped you.

The logfiles are always a good to start looking for the root cause of a problem. 😎

Hi @Gopal Singh,

 

The error isn’t in that screenshot of the logs, that’s just info messages, search for “Warning” or “Error” within the logs and see what appears.
