Public preview: Multiple backups per day for Azure Virtual Machines
Published date: 27 June, 2022
Azure Virtual Machine Backup enables you to create an enhanced policy to take multiple snapshots a day. Understanding your need to protect mission-critical workloads in Azure Virtual Machines, Azure Backup now previews low recovery point objective (RPO) to as low as four hours.
With this capability, you can define the duration in which your backup jobs would trigger and align your backup schedule with the working hours when there are frequent updates. Understanding your need for higher retention in instant restore, enhanced policy is designed to offer instant restore retention with default of seven days retention and maxmimum of 30 days. This ensures minimal data loss in the event of corruption or updates.
