Azure Backup

Azure Backup service runs on the cloud and holds the recovery points, enforces policies, and enables you to manage data and application protection. You don’t need to create or manage an Azure Blob storage account when using Azure Backup.

Blob Storage

Blob storage that partner solutions such as Commvault connect to for backing up data and applications. You need to create and manage Azure Blob storage when using partner solutions.


Commvault Simpana is an example of a partner solution to back up or archive your data and applications to Azure. This runs on a virtual machine on Azure.


An agent provided by the partner backup provider is installed on each virtual machine that needs to be backed up. It has access to data and applications running on the virtual machine and interacts with a virtual appliance such as Commvault Simpana hosted on Azure.
