We are excited to announce the preview release of alerting and monitoring for Azure backup, which is currently the top-voted idea on Azure backup UserVoice. In a continuation of the simplified experience using the new Recovery Services vault, customers can now monitor cloud backups for their on-premises servers and Azure IaaS virtual machines in a single dashboard. In addition, they can also configure email notifications for all backup alerts.

Introducing Alerting & Monitoring


If you are an existing Azure backup customer using recovery services vault, update to the latest azure backup agent to use this feature. If you have configured email notifications before enrolling, turn off email notifications, enroll the subscription, and then configure notifications.
