General availability: Configurable long-term backup retention for Azure SQL Database

17 July 2018

Configurable long-term backup retention for Azure SQL Database is now generally available in all Azure regions and national clouds. It offers a rich set of capabilities:

  • Flexible backup policies. You can customize the frequency of long-term backups for each database. Policies cover weekly, monthly, and yearly backups, with specific week-within-a-year backups.
  • Management of individual backups. You can delete backups that are not critical for compliance.
  • Streamlined configuration. There's no need to provision a separate backup service vault.
