Azure Backup for Windows Server system state
Date updated: 14 June 2017
Customers will now be able to perform comprehensive, secure and reliable Windows Server recoveries. We will be extending the data backup capabilities of the Azure Backup agent so that it will now integrate with the Windows Server Backup feature, available natively on every Windows Server. This integration will provide seamless, secure backups of your Windows Server System State directly to Azure, without the need to provision any on-premises infrastructure.
In the event that something happens to your Windows Server, Azure Backup will give you a snapshot of your system state including files, active directory settings, and certification services stored in Azure. You will then be able to restore your system state from Azure back to your on-premises Windows Server.
