Microsoft: Backup Managed Disk VMs using Azure Backup
Last week we announced the general availability of Managed Disks. Managed Disks are Azure Resource Manager (ARM) resources, that can be deployed via templates to create thousands of Managed Disks without worrying about creating storage accounts or specifying disk details. Backup of Managed disk VMs against accidental deletions and corruptions resulting from human errors is a critical capability for customers of all sizes. With Azure Backup service, you get key enterprise features like backup, restore, policy based management, backup alerts, job monitoring, instant data recovery without deploying any infrastructure in your tenant environment. You get the ability to backup Managed Disk VMs directly from VM management blade and the user experience is consistent with backup of VMs attached to Standard or Premium Unmanaged Disks.
Azure Backup’s cloud-first approach provides:
- Freedom from infrastructure: No need to deploy any infrastructure to backup VMs
- Eliminate backup storage management with bottomless Recovery Services vault.
- Pay as you go model with no egress costs for restores.
- Self-service backup and restore
