Data is the heart of any organization and backing up this data is a key part of a business strategy
Microsoft Azure Backup Server is included as a free download with Azure Backup. It enables cloud backups and disk backups for key Microsoft workloads like SQL, SharePoint and Exchange regardless if these workloads are running on Hyper-V, VMware or Physical servers. With the optional integration with System Center Data Protection Manager, you can protect advanced workloads running in your datacenter in VMs or on physical servers.
Whether you send backup data to Azure or keep it locally on the Azure Backup Server, the software needs to be connected to an Azure recovery services vault. We find that this model allows our customers to find the best balance between keeping clean fast short-term backups locally, while offsetting the long-term storage costs associated with backup to cheaper cloud based storage.
- Cloud backup allows you to reduce costs that are unnecessary to your organisation. ‘Pay as you go’ service that gives you the flexibility to pick and choose the data you want to protect, for as long as you want to protect it.
- Protects against ransomware by setting up limited access control so that only your authorised uses can perform critical backup operations. You’ll also get a notification if the backup detects any suspicious activity, before your data is compromised
- Azure Backup stores three copies of your data in three different locations in the Azure Datacenter and another three copies in an Azure Datacenter in a remote location. Data is encrypted before it leaves your Datacenter, sent over a secure connection to Azure, and stored encrypted in Azure.
