If you have managed backups, then you know of all the sufferings you've dealt with, ranging from errors to insufficient storage, to permissions, checking consistency, deduplication, mounting backups to restore entire systems...or random files only. These routines cause significant stress and concern if you do not have your backups set up appropriately, or worse, use a system that does not give you these abilities. With Microsoft Azure in place, it only makes sense to use Azure Backup. The ability to directly tie a machine to a user, or backup media to a project or dataset, and easily deploy in your Microsoft network, is superb with Azure as opposed to other software that you will have to set up all of these items manually to finagle them to work properly. Being a Microsoft network, Microsoft Windows, Microsoft Servers and Microsoft Exchange...adding Microsoft Azure is a clear recommended path and utilizing Azure for backups is a must in this type of environment.
