How to copy replicated VMs back to VMWare?

Boomerang offers two options for moving previously replicated and deployed VMs from AWS/Azure.  To move a VM that has been replicated but not deployed, the ‘Restore’ option can be used.  To move a VM that has already been deployed and may/may not be running in AWS/Azure, the ‘CopyBack’ option can be used.  This article discusses the ‘Restore’ option.

RESOLUTION

The Boomerang Restore option allows for copying replicated VMs in AWS/Azure back to VMware.   This option moves previously replicated data for the selected VMs from cloud storage (S3 or Blob storage) back to the local VMware environment and creates a new running VM in the process.  Of the two restore options, Restore/CopyBack, the Restore option will be much faster and will recreate the new VM using the state of the original VM at the time of the replication point selected.
