Cloud protection with Windows Azure Backup

Sky Blue

Web Portal-Based Management

You can centralize management of Windows Azure Backup using the Azure portal. To do so, click Recovery Services and then select the vault with the servers and data you want to manage. Dashboard lets you view the volume of data in the vault, which is important for billing. You can also view your registered servers. Protected Elements lets you view your backed up data. Although you cannot access or recover data here, you can see when data was backed up, as well as the servers and disk drives from which the data originated. For information on the individual servers, select Servers in the menu, which shows all the registered servers in your portal.


Windows Azure can be a valuable supplement to, or even a complete replacement for, an existing data backup solution for a business. In smaller companies with Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials, the cloud solution can fully replace a local backup.

Even for smaller branch offices or medium-sized businesses, Windows Azure Backup is very interesting as part of a backup solution. Because the backed up data are encrypted for storage in the Microsoft cloud, they are protected to the greatest extent possible against unauthorized access.
