Public Preview: Support for Azure VMs using Ultra disks in Azure Backup
Published date: 05 April, 2023
We are happy to announce public preview of enabling Azure Backup on Azure VMs using Ultra disks in the Sweden Central Azure region. Ultra disks enable customers to run mission critical, I/O demanding, enterprise applications on the cloud including applications like SAP HANA, top tier SQL databases, as well as NoSQL databases. With this feature, we aim to address a key ask from customers, who are looking to enable Azure Backup on Azure VMs running on Ultra disks. It will allow you to ensure business continuity for your virtual machines and to recover from any disasters or ransomware attacks.
Enabling backup on Ultra disks is currently available in select regions and we plan to keep adding support in more regions over the coming weeks. If you are interested in participating in the preview, you can request access to get started. To learn more, refer to the documentation to enable backup on your Azure VMs.
