Protect against data loss and corruption
Back up and recover data across Windows Server and Microsoft System Center with Azure Backup. Store and recover files, SQL Server database snapshots, and Hyper-V virtual machines in the cloud.
Reliable off-site data protection
Backups are encrypted before transmission and stored encrypted in Azure. These off-site backups are safely away from your datacenter and protected by reliable Azure storage, reducing the need to secure and protect on-site backup media.
Use familiar tools
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 Azure storage. After data is backed up to the cloud, authorized users can easily recover backups to any server.
Efficient and flexible
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. Configurable data retention policies, data compression, and data transfer throttling offer added flexibility and help boost efficiency.
