Updated: August 02, 2017
Azure Backup has expanded to DoD and additional US government regions. This expansion makes Azure Backup available in all Azure Government regions (US DOD Central, US DOD East, US Gov Texas, US Gov Arizona, US Gov Iowa, US Gov Virginia).
Azure Backup can back up (or protect) and restore your data in the Microsoft cloud. Azure Backup enables Azure IaaS VM backup and can replace your existing on-premises or off-site backup solution with a cloud-based solution that is reliable, secure, and cost-competitive. Customers in the listed regions can now use Azure Backup with the same reliability and performance levels described in the Backup SLA.
