Microsoft Cloud Backup

Organizations and companies are increasingly using Microsoft Azure Backup to protect physical or virtual machines and data including SQL, Exchange and SharePoint. Traditional tape backups are costly and unreliable, while disk backup solutions have become more affordable and reliable.

You can choose to store backups on a local redundant storage or Geo-redundant storage. Local redundant stores –  3 copies of the backup data within a single facility. Geo-Redundant stores –  6 copies of backups, 3 local and 3 backups in a secondary region. A well planned backup strategy requires careful design, planning, execution and testing to reduce data lost and downtime. Two important elements of a continuity plan are the RPO (Recovery Point Objective – Time between each backup) and RTO (Recovery Time Objective – How long will it take to recover the data).

No additional cost for restore operations or network bandwidth. Data backups are compressed and encrypted to improve faster restore times. Backups are deployed and managed from the Microsoft Azure Portal with several capabilities including monitoring and scheduling.

Other backup solution including Backup Exec, Acronis, Veeam, Dura, EMC, Netback and Yosemite to name a few are available with a variety of options and features.
