This disclosure describes enterprise computing resource protection, e.g., virtual machines or other resources distributed over multiple cloud data centers in different locations. Resource protection is enabled based on user selection of resource protection via a user interface. Users can provide input to select a particular project and a corresponding time period when the compute resources are to be protected (reserved). The selected project is traversed to identify the compute resources utilized and a clone of the user compute environment is created as a backup environment, with resources in the backup environment being reserved for a time period specified by the user. In the event of a disruption to a main (production) compute environment, the backup environment is utilized to recreate the computing environment with minimal operational disruption.
