Back up on-premises applications and data to cloudBack up data and applications from an on-premises system to Azure using Azure Backup or a partner solution. An Internet connection to Azure is used to connect to Azure Backup or Azure Blob storage. Azure Backup Server can write backups directly to Azure Backup. Alternatively, a partner solution such as Commvault Simpana or Veeam Availability Suite, hosted on-premises, can write backups to Blob storage directly or via a cloud endpoint such as Veeam Cloud Connect.
