By using Azure Backup, you can back up your NAS device you use locally as a file server, virtual machines you use in [a] production environment, critical databases, and everything you can think of. I do not know if there are scenarios that are not suitable, it meets all my needs.

For SAP and Server Backup we wanted extremely reliable options and a faster mechanism with better efficient backup. At that point in time, it was retaliated to prefer Azure Backup. For a server, we wanted a very Quick 1 Hour Backup for Daily [use] since it was very crucial data for those cases we have preferred Azure Backup.

Azure Backup is suitable for companies of various sizes, with varying amounts of data. The cost of the investment should be thought out carefully so that there are no bad surprises with unnecessary files going to Azure Backup. The interface is friendly and easy to configure and it does not require your company to have a backup expert. It is highly recommended for companies with smaller number of servers and better if the servers are already running in an Azure environment.

Azure Backup is very well suited for 'simple' VM Backups. Basically, if a snapshot works good for your server/application, than the Azure Backup will work for you. It is a full copy of the entire VM. If you need more complex backup configurations or granularity, then maybe it won't fit to your needs.

What we like most is how easy it is to effectively backup and restore virtual machines. It can be done in the following ways: complete restoration, disk, and volume mounting on the local computer. It is a well-established solution in the market and a secure cloud with high availability and security.

Azure is secure, one of the most secure cloud-based user management software that easily and thoroughly connects to Microsoft Active Directory. Microsoft does a tremendous job at redundancy across their data centers and data itself inside each data center. This gives you the knowledge that regardless of what happens to one building, all your data is safe in Azure. Azure backups are very fast and work well with QOS in your network to allocate resources to other important tasks rather than a backup. Not everyone is a GUI user, many of us techs prefer to use Powershell commands to manage, setup, troubleshoot systems and data. As Microsoft owns all of this, Powershell is a quick way to get access to your data in the cloud and issue any needed commands to your system(s) in bulk or one at a time. If you have a complete Linux or Mac environment, you may want to consider another solution as much of what Azure Backup offers is best used with Windows.

If you're looking to quickly establish backup schedules and need to quickly configure a set of new assets, Azure backup will work well. Azure backup works especially well if you're working with a standard set of needs around your scheduling, recovery, and distribution parameters. If you want to do more complicated integration into custom automation pipelines, some more web-services based providers might be a better fit.

Azure Backup is well suited for infrastructure in Azure. Azure backup is built into the platform and comes at no additional costs (you are charged for the storage, however), it is very easy to configure and get going. Azure backup is easy to work with when needing a restore and ties into the Azure platform really well.
