Recovery Target Options for Google Cloud Platform

When you configure a recovery target for Google Cloud Platform, provide Google Cloud Platform-specific values for the destination site.

  • Select vendor: Select Google Cloud Platform.

  • Application type: Replication is selected automatically.

  • Recovery target name: Enter a descriptive name for the destination (for example, DR site 1).

  • Destination hypervisor: Select the destination project.

  • Access node: Select an access node to use for replication to the destination project.

    To restore multiple instances or VMs simultaneously, select Automatic to distribute the workload (instances or VMs) in the replication job across the access nodes that are assigned for the destination hypervisor. This option is available for operations both from streaming backups or IntelliSnap backup copies.

    First, the instances are assigned to the access nodes by a zone match. If access nodes are not available in the same zone, then the instances are assigned to access nodes in the same region. If there is no zone or region match, the access nodes are assigned using the round-robin method.

  • Users and user groups: Select items from the list and click OK to associate users or user groups with the recovery target.

  • Instance display name: Select Prefix or Suffix, and then enter a text string that will be appended to the original display name to create new destination instance names.

  • Primary zone: Select a primary zone for the disk.

  • Secondary zone: Select a secondary zone for the disk. This option is applicable only if the source instance has a regional disk configured.

  • External IP: To assign a public IP address to the instances, select this check box.

  • Users and user groups: Select the users and/or user groups that can use this recovery target.
