RELEASE: Windows Azure Backup Services

imageWindows Azure Backup helps you protect important server data off-site with automated backup to Windows Azure.

  • Reliable offsite data protection
    Backups are encrypted before transmission and stored encrypted in Windows Azure. These backups are off-site, safely away from your datacenter, protected by reliable Windows Azure storage, reducing the need to secure and protect on-site backup media, .

  • A simple and integrated solution
    Manage cloud backups from the familiar backup tools in Windows Server, Windows Server Essentials, or System Center Data Protection Manager. These tools provide similar experiences configuring, monitoring, and recovering backups whether to local disk or Windows Azure storage. Or you can use the agent software itself. After data is backed up to the cloud, authorized users can easily recover backups to any server.

  • Efficient and flexible backup and recovery
    With incremental backups, only changes to files are transferred to the cloud. This helps ensure efficient use of storage and reduced bandwidth consumption, while enabling point-in-time recovery of multiple versions of the data. Configurable data retention policies, data compression, and data transfer throttling offer added flexibility and help boost efficiency.
