Restores for OCI


On this page

From Oracle Cloud Infrastructure backups (OCI), you can restore guest files or full instances.

Note: Full instance restores require the target instance and the backup gateway to be located in the same region and the same AD.

Restore Flow

  1. Create boot volume:

    1. Fetch source image information from index.

    2. Create a temporary instance using fetched image and boot volume size.

    3. Delete the instance and keep the boot volume.

  2. Create empty data volumes.

  3. Attach data volumes to proxy.

  4. Write data to volumes.

  5. Detach volumes from proxy.

  6. Create new instance with restored volumes.
