Backup Explorer is now in preview

Published date: February 07, 2020

Azure Backup now offers a new solution called Backup Explorer (in preview). Backup Explorer is a built-in Azure Monitor Workbook enabling you to have a single pane of glass to perform real-time monitoring across your entire backup estate on Azure.

Up until now, you could use a Recovery Services vault to get a bird’s-eye view of items backed up under that vault along with the associated jobs, policies, and alerts. But as your backup estate expands to span multiple vaults across subscriptions, regions, and tenants, monitoring this estate in real-time becomes a larger, more complicated task, requiring you to write your own customizations. Backup Explorer works across vaults, subscriptions, and regions. If you’re an Azure Lighthouse user with delegated access to your customers' subscriptions, you can use Backup Explorer to view monitoring data across multiple tenants as well. It’s currently supported for Azure Virtual Machines, and support for more workloads will be added in the near future.
