Azure Restore Point Collections restores a VM disk, which can then be used to create a new VM. Azure Backup provides a template to help you customize and create a VM. The restore job generates a template that you can download and use to specify custom VM settings, and create a VM. The disks are copied to the Resource Group that you specify.

Or, you can attach the disk to an existing VM, or create a new VM using PowerShell. This option is useful if you want to:

  • Customize the VM.
  • Add configuration settings that were not there at the time of backup.
  • Add settings that must be configured using the template or PowerShell.

Use the Azure public cloud integration to discover and collect metrics against the Azure service.
