You can now move your recovery points to archive to save cost and retain backup data for a longer duration in a cost effective manner for Azure VMs and SQL Server in Azure VMs. Using Azure PowerShell, you can move eligible backups in standard tier to the new archive tier as independent and full recovery points. Restores are also made easy through an integrated process in the Azure portal, making recovery a simple and user-friendly process. In addition to that, Azure backup will also provide recommendations for moving specific set of recovery points to archive for Azure VMs through a recommendation API.
