Azure Backup is the Azure-based service that you can use to back up and restore your data in the Microsoft cloud. Azure Cloud Backup Service is the most reliable, safe, and competitively priced cloud-based backup solution that can be used to replace on-premises or off-site backup solutions. There are multiple components in Azure Backup that can be downloaded and deployed depending on what you want to be backed up. All of these components can be utilized to back up data to a Recovery Services vault in Azure, regardless of whether you’re protecting data on your premises or in the cloud.

The advantages of Azure Backup

Traditionally backups to the cloud have treated the cloud as a storage destination, similar to tape or disks. However, this approach doesn’t take complete advantage of an underlying cloud platform. Other cloud storage solutions can mean that you end up spending on storage that you don’t need or the wrong type of storage for your business.

The benefits of Azure Backup include-

Depending on your business requirements, you may want storage on-site as well as in the cloud. Azure Backup Service doesn’t charge for on-site storage devices. It even allocates and manages backup storage and uses a pay-as-you-use model.

1. Unlimited scaling

Azure Backup has high availability. You hold no maintenance or monitoring overheads. You can get details about events by setting up alerts if you wish.

2. Several storage options

There are two types of replications in Azure Backup- locally redundant storage and geo-redundant storage (GRS). Which one you prefer or a combination will depend on your storage and backup needs.

3. Data encryption

Office 365 Backup Solutions provides data encryption to ensure that your data is transmitted and stored securely. The encryption passphrase is stored locally and is never transmitted in Azure. If you require to restore any of the data, you’re the only one who has the encryption passphrase.

4. Unlimited data transfer

Azure Backup Service does not place limits on the amounts of inbound or outbound data that you transfer. Outbound data means files that are transferred from a Recovery Services vault while carrying out a restore operation. However, if you’re using the Azure Import/Export service to import enormous amounts of data, inbound data will accrue a cost.

5. Application-consistent backup

This indicates that a recovery point has all the required data to restore the backup copy, so additional fixes are not required. The use of application-consistent data means that restoration time is decreased substantially.

6. Long-term retention

There is no limit to the length of time data can stay in a Recovery Services vault, so they can be used for both short, and long-term data retention. However, Azure Backup Service has a limit of 9999 recovery points per protected instance.
