Disaster Recovery Testing
We have recently implemented Cloud Berry Image Based backups to our servers and would like to know the best way to run a Disaster Recovery test, can you please let me know which is the best way to test them.
1. You can restore the image as a virtual drive and try booting a virtual machine with it.
We support 3 types of virtual drives:
- for Oracle Virtual Box
- for Microsoft Hyper-V
- for VMWare ESXi
After restoring the image to a virtual drive you should attach the drive to a virtual machine and try to boot with it.
2. You can run a bare metal restore from the bootable USB drive:
