It is used across all servers at the Enterprise level across [the] department. There is a lot of customization available in terms of the requirement that comes up around the user like Daily Backup for 6 Months or a combination of Daily, Weekly, and Monthly with having high Retention Policy which makes data restoration to a high extent.

We keep the backup of all critical systems working 24/7 in our Data Center and databases that are continuously transacted on the cloud side with Azure Backup. Azure Backup provides tier levels that cannot be provided by non-IT companies like us, far below the investment costs as a service.

We have been using Azure Backups for the last 2 years, since we started migrating VM workloads to Azure. It's an excellent (and obvious) choice for 'simple' VM backups as it is very easy to implement and to administer. As a native feature from Azure, its integration to Microsoft products (such as Windows VMs and Azure SQL instances) is very good and reliable. It has a friendly user interface, compatible with the Azure visual identity and usage. Its implementation/initial configuration is straightforward, even for those who don't have much experience implementing and managing backup environments. Different from the more complex backup platforms/implementations, Azure Backup runs pretty well... We have almost zero 'backup job' failures. It just completes successfully every time.

In the last 3 years, we started a process to use our servers in the cloud. We migrated several servers and chose to use Azure Backup for our environment. Azure Backup for safe and reliable disaster recovery. He brought us in a simple way and with a friendly interface, a backup solution for our servers and both Hyper-V or VMware environments. It is an environment with easy backup scheduling and cost effective. There was a significant cost reduction with traditional backups.

We have used it for over two years in a scenario to perform backups of virtual machines, SQL databases, and data in general. The interface is excellent, clean, friendly, and easy to learn and use. Even local non-IT users can use it without problems. With this tool, backups and restores are easy and simplified.

We use Azure Backup to ensure that all of our own assets and those we manage for clients are fully recoverable with the proper RTO/RPO targets. The thing that is striking about Azure Backup compared to other cloud environments is how straightforward and simple the initial configuration is. In addition, it's not been my experience to find a straightforward utility designed around managing traditional backups on other major cloud platforms. I was expecting to have to do some of the custom scripting and scheduling that I needed to do in the past and was really happy to discover how easy it is to manage backups with Azure Backup.

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.

Azure backup is in many different deployments and environments. We use it only for infrastructure in Azure. Azure backup is used for our customer environments as well as internal Azure environments. Azure backup addresses the need for a consistent and reliable backup solution in Azure that has the ability to snapshot/protect the entire VM.
