I have two backup files one from Normal SQL Server and one from SQL Server from Azure VM.
The restore of these backup files is totally different from each other. Though the database backups are performed at the same state, meaning the Normal Servers backup is being first restored on Azure VM1 took 20 Minutes. and then took backup of Azure VM1 and restoring it on VM2 took 1 Hour and 30 minutes.
To be more clear on the above point, I haven't started any writes on Azure VM1 before taking backup again.
Can anyone shed some light on what is different when we are taking backup from Azure VM and restoring it?
