Yes, it is possible to deploy a new virtual machine (VM) or recover from an encrypted existing VM using snapshots, depending on the virtualization platform you're using. Snapshots are a feature provided by many virtualization platforms that allow you to capture the state of a VM at a specific point in time, including its encrypted data.
To deploy a new VM or recover from an encrypted VM using snapshots, you typically follow these steps:
Create a snapshot: Take a snapshot of the VM you want to work with. This creates a copy of the VM's disk data at a particular moment, including any encryption that's in place.
Provision a new VM: Use the snapshot as a template or source to create a new VM. This new VM will be an exact replica of the original VM at the time the snapshot was taken, including the encrypted data.
Configure encryption settings: If the original VM was encrypted, you may need to configure the encryption settings for the new VM, such as providing encryption keys or passwords.
Start the new VM: Once the new VM is set up and configured, you can start it up and access the recovered or newly deployed VM.
The exact steps you take and terminology may vary depending on the virtualization platform you're using, such as VMware, Hyper-V, or cloud platforms like AWS, Azure, or Google Cloud. It's important to check the documentation or support resources provided by your specific virtualization platform for detailed instructions on how to perform these actions.
