In this post, we explain how to do Full Server Local to Cloud Restore on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) service for Disaster Recovery (DR) with CloudBerry Backup, a powerful solution that allows you to automate your backup and restore processes.
First of all, you need to create a snapshot of your server by taking advantage of the CloudBerry Image Based Backup feature. Once it is done, you can go ahead and restore this server snapshot to Amazon EC2 service as shown below.
How to do Full Server Restore to Amazon EC2 with CloudBerry Backup
1. Launch CloudBerry Backup, click the Restore button on the toolbar and follow the Restore Wizard steps to create a new restore plan.
You may as well want to create the Amazon Machine Image (AMI) by using the Create AMI option. This option allows you to automatically run a restored virtual machine and finally you will have a running system with a personalized IP address. Without that option, you will have to configure an IP address (Elastic IP) and start the restore machine manually in the AWS EC2 Management Console.
To create the AMI while restoring your server as EC2 Instance, just select Create AMI (Amazon Machine Image) check-box and set up the vmimport role: How To Configure VMimport Role.
4. Specify Target EC2 Instance details:
5. You can find the restored server in Amazon EC2 Management Console.
