Instant Restore - Disaster Recovery Feature

Instant restore is an instant virtual machine restore. It consists in restoring the machine's configuration files to the VMware datastore, preparing a virtual machine, and then mounting the disks run directly from the copy to it. Thanks to this, the Xopero ONE Administrator does not have to wait for the entire machine to be restored directly to VMware and can start using it almost immediately.

The Instant restore is not a production solution and should only be used as a disaster recovery. For production data restore, Whole machine restore option is available.
