Azure Backup – All Grown Up

I always will have a soft spot for Azure backup. You see when I was at Microsoft (contractor) I was focused on Server 2012 R2, but in my downtime, I had started to look at Azure backup as an alternative backup solution for my clients. When my manager asked if knew anything about Azure I directed him to my article on it Backing Up to Azure…it’s not that bad. That was way back in 2013, Azure was still a baby.  Azure backup has come a long way.

Azure backup can now protect:

Files and Folders

Azure Virtual Machines

Linux and Windows Systems

Hyper-V and VMWare Virtual Machines

System State

SQL Server, SharePoint and Exchange Workloads

Bare Metal

Azure FileShares

Azure SQL Database LongTerm Backup

In the coming weeks, my latest course will be released, and you’ll be able to see me protect various workloads using Azure backup. In the meantime, please share your Azure backup success stories using the hashtag #SuperHerosOfAzureBackup.

    Looking forward to the new course as much as your previous ones on LinkedIn Learning Sharon! I just recently purchased a NetGear ReadyNAS which now come with a built-in option (beta) to sync with Azure blob storage containers. It took about 30 secs. to setup and is working great! https://kb.netgear.com/000049511/ReadyNAS-OS-6-9-Sync-with-Azure-blob-containers
