Overview of Azure Backup & Recovery
The first step in preventing data loss is to back up your data. In the past, backups consisted of copying content from drives to an offline media (e.g tape) and then transporting that data to an offsite location. With the cloud, there is a better approach.
With enormous capacities of storage, built – in security, and cloud datacenters all over the world, Azure offers a cost – effective cloud solution that can ensure that your data will be protected for when the unexpected or unthinkable happens.
In addition to protecting your data, you also need to make sure your applications stay available during an IT interruption, and that downtime is limited. Disaster recovery with Azure Site Recovery allows you to set up and test your disaster recovery solution in just 3 steps and without paying for additional infrastructure.
