Azure Backup is a simple and cost-effective backup as a service (BaaS) solution, that gives you trusted tools on-premises with rich and powerful tools in the cloud.
Your data and applications are everywhere—on servers, clients, and in the cloud. Backup can help protect your critical applications, including SharePoint, Exchange, and SQL Server; files and folders; Windows servers and clients; and Azure infrastructure as a service (IaaS) virtual machines.
Due to business or compliance requirements, organizations are required to protect their data for years, and over time the data grows exponentially. Traditionally, tape has been used for long-term retention. Backup gives you a compelling alternative to tape with significant cost savings, shorter recovery times, and up to 99 years of retention.
Your backup data is highly secure over the wire and at rest. The backup data is stored in geo-replicated storage, which maintains six copies of your data across two Azure datacenters. With 99.9% service availability, Backup gives you operational peace of mind.
Backup is efficient over the network and on your disk. Once the initial seeding is complete, only incremental changes are sent at a defined frequency. Built-in features, such as compression, encryption, longer retention, and bandwidth throttling, help boost IT efficiency.
Protect your environment by automating the replication of the virtual machines, based on policies that you set and control. Azure Site Recovery can protect Microsoft Hyper-V, VMware, and physical servers, and you can use Azure or your secondary datacenter as your recovery site.
Use Site Recovery to automate the recovery of services when a site outage happens at the primary datacenter. Bring over applications in an orchestrated way to help restore service quickly, even for complex multi-tier workloads. Easily create disaster recovery plans in the Microsoft Azure classic portal, where they are stored.
Replicate your workloads to Azure and enable new capabilities. Applications can be migrated to Azure with just a few clicks, or burst to Azure temporarily when you encounter a surge in demand. Run reports and analytics on copies of production workloads in Azure without affecting customers.
Site Recovery monitors the state of your protected instances continuously and remotely from Azure. When replicating between two sites that you control, your virtual machines’ data and replication stays on your networks. All communication with Azure is encrypted.
Site Recovery coordinates and manages the ongoing replication of data by integrating with existing technologies including System Center and Microsoft SQL Server AlwaysOn.
