Microsoft Introduces Cloud Database Backup Service for SQL Server

Making SAP Cloud Platform available on Azure wasn’t the only recent addition to Microsoft’s cloud ecosystem. The company also introduced an “infrastructure-less,” pay-as-you-go data protection service called Azure Backup for SQL Server, allowing customers to back up SQL Server databases running on Azure instances.

This approach frees administrators from managing backup agents, servers, storage and other components that are typically required to maintain database backups and recover data when disaster strikes, explained Anurag Mehrotra, a Microsoft Azure Backup program manager, in a blog post.
