Take control of your backups
with Azure Backup
Azure Backup is the service you can use to back up (or protect) and restore your
data in the Microsoft cloud. Azure Backup replaces your existing on-premises or
off-site backup solution with a cloud-based solution that is reliable, secure, and
Why use Azure Backup?
Traditional backup solutions have evolved to treat the cloud as an endpoint, or static storage destination, similar to disks or tape. While this approach is simple, it is limited and doesn't take full advantage of an underlying cloud platform, which translates to an expensive, inefficient solution.
Automatic Storage Management
Hybrid environments often require heterogeneous storage - some on-premises and some in the cloud.
With Azure Backup, there is no cost for using on-premises storage devices.
Azure Backup automatically allocates and manages backup storage, and it uses a pay-as-you-use model.
Pay-as-you-use means that you only pay for the storage that you consume.
Locally redundant storage (LRS) replicates your data three times in a storage scale unit in a datacenter.
Geo-redundant storage (GRS) is the default and recommended replication option. GRS replicates your data to a secondary region (hundreds of miles away from the primary location of the source data).
