This section summarizes our solution backup and restore tests and test results.
For the first test, we ran a full image-level backup on a VM. The DP4400 system processed the backup request, and the Avamar software protected the entire VM. The test was completed successfully with no issues.
In this test, we built upon the full image-level backup test by performing an incremental backup. Avamar software used Windows Server RCT to accelerate backing up only the changed blocks. The test was completed quickly and successfully with no issues.
Using the full image-level backup, we restored the VM to its original node. We monitored progress in the activity screen and further validated success by logging in to the restored VM.
In this test, we simulated a runbook in which multiple VMs had to be restored to the original cluster. Restoring multiple VMs worked as expected with no errors.
The goal of this test was to simulate the loss of a cluster and the recovery of a VM to a new cluster. We restored the single VM to the new cluster without any errors or additional complexity.
In this test, we simulated the loss of files and folders within a VM. We restored the files and folders without any errors. This test shows the granular ability to restore files and folders from an image-level backup.
We ran this test to ensure that we could restore important files and folders to another VM on a different cluster. This final test was completed successfully. No errors occurred during the restore of the files and folders.
