Public preview: Multiple backups per day for Azure Files
Published date: 29 October, 2021
Low RPO (Recovery Point Objective) is a key requirement for Azure Files holding business-critical data updated quite often. To ensure minimal data loss in the event of a disaster or unwanted changes to file share content, organizations may prefer to take backups more frequently than once a day.
Azure Backup now enables you to create a backup policy or modify an existing one to take multiple snapshots a day. With this capability, you can also define the duration in which your backup jobs would trigger. It empowers you to align your backup schedule with the working hours when there are frequent updates to Azure Files content.
