General availability: Azure Backup support for application workloads
Published date: October 15, 2015
Azure Backup can now back up your on-premises application workloads, including Microsoft SQL Server, Hyper-V virtual machines, Microsoft SharePoint, and Microsoft Exchange. You can back up your applications to a local disk or to Azure, allowing you to eliminate local tape libraries and leverage the unlimited storage capability of Azure. You can also manage all your on-premises backups from a single user interface. Backup continues to support backups of your production IaaS virtual machines in Azure and to help protect your Windows client data and your shared files and folders. Backup is now available through Microsoft Operations Management Suite, across on-premises or cloud environments. For more information, please visit the Azure Backup page.
