Overview of backup to the cloud      

 

Data are stored automatically at a given time to dedicated cloud server that will allow to recover them at any time at any place at new hardware equipment.

Microsoft Azure backup server guarantees data accessibility and safety at the highest level. Data can be recovered at any time even in case of basic storage failure.

Azure Backup components allow to protect data on-premises or in the cloud and back up them to Azure cloud storage.

Different components are used depending on customer needs:

  • • Azure Backup (MARS) agent - to back up files and folders stored on physical PC or virtual machines. No need to have dedicated backup server.
  • • Azure Backup Server - to backup files and folders, volumes and virtual machines, applications, workload and system state with ability to choose the time of backup. 
  • • System Center Data Protection Manager - to backup files and folders, volumes and virtual machines, applications, workload and system state with ability to choose the time of backup and support of tape backup.
  • • Azure IaaS VM Backup – to back up virtual machines and all disks once per day. Cloud only. 

 

  Benefits of using Microsoft Azure Backup:

  • • A range of workloads: Microsoft Azure is suitable for backing up a range of customer workloads, including file servers, SharePoint Server, SQL Server, Exchange, and many others.
  • • Data protection: With Microsoft Azure Backup, you can offer customers greater peace of mind by leveraging the same cloud platform relied upon by some of the world’s largest financial institutions with encrypted backups and global, geo-redundant datacenters.
  • • No hardware and backup media costs: By leveraging Microsoft Azure infrastructure, you can avoid capital expense for hardware and the cost of backup media.
  • • Consistent management tools: Microsoft Azure Backup offers a uniquely consistent platform for managing your customers’ backups, whether on-premises or in the cloud. It integrates with the in-box backup program in Microsoft Windows Server (or System Center Data Protection Manager); it is driven by familiar PowerShell scripting language, and it is fully integrated with the Azure Management Portal for sign-up, billing, and web-based management.

 

With Microsoft Azure Backup, you can offer customers flexible data recovery and other powerful backup features. For example, you can provide convenient data recovery features like point-in-time recovery and file-level recovery to recover only what your customer needs. You can also customize your solutions to meet customers’ specific needs with flexible data retention policies, data compression, and data transfer throttling. You can also minimize network bandwidth use by sending only incremental backups.  

  • • Reduce Total Cost of Ownership of local infrastructure - reduction due to not having a necessity to replace local disks
  • • Exceptional reliability of the service - thanks to the ability to replicate data in Azure Data Centers and three-time backup of customer data.
  • • Flexibility of the system - the ability to reserve either the entire infrastructure or its individual elements from one interface
