Azure expands the protection for IaaS VMs. In addition to protecting on-premises data to Azure, Azure Backup can perform online backups of Azure IaaS VMs for Windows and Linux operating systems, and restore them as needed.
Effective April 1, 2015, the Azure Backup service will be charged based on the size of each protected server in increments of 500 GB. Additionally, Azure Storage will be charged for separately providing the benefit of lower storage costs over time.
Azure Backup added support for an increased number of policies and long-term retention. Offline Backup uses the Azure Import service to reduce the time needed to load large backup copies. SharePoint, Exchange, and Windows client operating systems are supported DPM workloads that can be backed up to Azure.
Azure Backup enables customers to back up files and folders from computers running Windows 8.1, Windows 8, and Windows 7 to Azure.
