Azure Backup is a simple and economic BaaS (Backup as a Service) that offers proven local tools with sophisticated, powerful tools in the cloud. It offers strong data protection for clients, independent of where they are: in the datacenter, office, remote desktop or in the public cloud, being subject to specific requirements for each of these cases. Azure Backup, in a combined portal experience with Azure Site Recovery, offers low costs and consistent minimal management tools for external backups and operational recovery, besides data protection and unified application availability.
Your data and applications are everywhere - in servers, clients and in the cloud. Azure Backup can help protect critical applications like SharePoint, Exchange and SQL Server, and also help protect archives and folders, Azure clients and Windows servers and IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) Virtual Machines.
Due to compliance or business demands, organizations must store and protect data for years, and with time this data grows exponentially. Traditionally, tapes are used for long-term data retention. Backup provides a attractive alternative for tape storage, with significant economy, lower recovery time and up to 99 years of retention.
Your backup data is highly secure both in transit and at rest. Backup data is stored in geographically replicated storages that keep six copies of your data in two Azure datacenters. With 99.9% uptime, Azure Backup provides complete operational relief.
Backup is efficient both in disk and online. After the initial transmission, only incremental changes will be transmitted according to the defined frequency. Integrated resources like compaction, cryptography, lasting retention and bandwidth limitation help better IT efficiency.
Pay only for what you use
