Setting up continual export to VirtualBox

To export to a VirtualBox VM on a remote Windows host, you must have VirtualBox installed on the Core machine. This requirement does not apply for VMs hosted on Linux.

1.
In the Rapid Recovery Core Console, do one of the following:
From the Core Console, in the button bar, click the [Restore] Restore drop-down menu, and then select VM Export.

Exporting data to an Azure virtual machine

In Rapid Recovery, you can export data to Azure by performing a one-time export, or by establishing a continual export (for virtual standby). One-time export to the Azure platform includes deployment in the workflow. If using a continual export, you can also later deploy the exported files to a bootable VM.

For prerequisites for virtual export to Azure, see Before virtual export to Azure.

For a detailed description of unique aspects of virtual export for Azure, see Exporting and deploying VMs for Azure.
